In recent years, Branson has become known as a golf destination. In fact, this April will mark the third year for the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf PGA Tournament played on several Branson courses. This tournament brings big-name golfers to the area and is aired nationally, watched by millions.
One of our golf visitors’ favorite courses is Holiday Hills. Located just east of downtown Branson, Holiday Hills is a tried and true course that tens of thousands have played for years. At Holiday Hills, golfers enjoy hybrid Bermuda fairways and tees with bent-grass greens. You’ll be challenged by water as it comes into play on 6 holes. Plus, each golf cart at Holiday Hills comes equipped with ProLink GPS. The monitors offer real-time graphical views of the course so there’s no more searching for sprinkler heads or stepping off yardages. Just pull your cart up next to your ball and look at the screen to find easy and accurate distances. At Holiday Hills Golf Course, every golfer, regardless of skill level, will have an enjoyable game.
Located in the center of Branson are two courses with a variety of challenges to test your golf game. Thousand Hills and Pointe Royale courses offer beautiful scenery and expertly designed holes that allow for an enjoyable time out on the course.
A newer course in Branson, Branson Hills Golf Club (previously named Payne Stewart Golf Course) is one of the area’s most challenging courses. Golfers rave about the beautifully designed holes and natural Ozarks scenery that surround you as you play the course. Though this course may be a bit more difficult than others, it was designed in the memory of local, famed golfer Payne Stewart and holds a special experience for anyone who plays this course.
If you’re looking for a place to take in a quieter round of 18 that gives you the feeling you’re playing at a secluded course, then Ledgestone Golf Course at Stonebridge Village is for you. Ledgestone is located west of Branson near Silver Dollar City. This course is nestled in a valley among the Ozark Mountains. Natural rock formations and waterfalls add to this course’s stunning surroundings.
The newest courses in the area, Top Of The Rock and Buffalo Ridge Springs, are both projects from well-known conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops, Johnny Morris. Morris has called upon golf experts to design courses that are a pleasure to play, but it’s Morris’ eye for nature that truly sets these courses apart. Top Of The Rock is a 9-hole, par 27 course with stunning lake views. Buffalo Ridge Springs is an 18-hole, par 71 course where you can get up close to the course’s neighbors… live buffalo. These two courses play host to the annual PGA Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf Champions Tour. Past participants include Gary Player, Hale Irwin, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson – just to name a few.
Branson has a golf course for every skill level, from beginner to expert. We invite you to experience a golf game that only the Ozarks can offer. Expertly designed courses by some of the top pros in the game, paired with the natural beauty of the area, make a game of golf in Branson something special. Plus, golf games are always better on vacation.
