(Branson, Missouri) – Caddy service, multiple “Best New” designated gaming sites, Audubon International Signature Sanctuary-certified courses, and luxury accommodations are some of the highlights visiting players can expect to discover in Branson this season.
Caddies are available in the destination, more specifically on three of its 10 routes. Players can find them on Big Cedar Golf’s 18-hole courses – Payne’s Valley (Tiger Woods design), Ozarks National (Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw) and Buffalo Ridge (Tom Fazio and Johnny Morris).
“We’ve created a caddies team that includes a mix of professional caddies spending their winters in Florida and Arizona and new local caddies learning the trade,” Big Cedar Golf spokesman Matt McQueary said. “We’re proud to say this is a local caddy program, which is rare in the Midwest, and we’re honored to be able to offer it to our customers.”
With five courses in total, including two short courses – Mountain Top (Gary Player) and Top of the Rock (Jack Nicklaus) – Big Cedar continues to make the Ozarks of southwestern Missouri one of the most fascinating places in the world. to enjoy the game.
Branson’s other five courses add variety and value, the least of which begin during the spring shoulder season. For example, golfers at The Pointe can play 18 holes tax-free for $59.99 until April 10. Reduced spring greens fees are in place at Thousand Hills Golf Resort and LedgeStone Country Club until April 1, when peak season rates begin. Holiday Hills was Branson’s first golf course and is currently one of the most affordable. At less than 6,000 meters, he is also one of his friendliest players.
Open to the public but in high demand, Branson Hills “Twilight Zone” membership is a way to frequently play the top-rated course designed by Chuck Smith and Bobby Clampett with special perks starting at 2 p.m. daily throughout of the season. These include a $300 credit available for food and beverages, a 10% discount at the Magnolia Grille and Pro Shop, monthly dinners, unlimited access to balls and practice facilities, and rates preferential for guests. Twilight Zone membership starts at $2,086 for individuals, $2,950 for couples and families.
Some of the biggest news from the Branson golf destination this season involves environmental best practices. According to Big Cedar, it became the first resort in the world to receive Signature Sanctuary status on its five courses from Audubon International, a world leader in conservation nonprofit. To achieve this important distinction, the courtyards had to meet the highest standards of conservation-minded courtyard design and sustainable operation.
“Achieving this designation is no easy task for any golf course, let alone five, given the rigorous certification process that takes years and includes multiple on-site visits by Audubon International staff,” said Matt. McQueary of Big Cedar Golf.
This achievement aligns with the vision of renowned conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder, Johnny Morris, who created Big Cedar Lodge to connect more people to nature and became one of America’s leaders in preservation.
“Branson has established itself as one of the nation’s top destinations for discerning players – we’re home to five of the state’s top 10 rated courses with three nationally ranked – and the best part is that we offer different types of courses, prices, accommodation options and post-golf attractions,” said Lynn Berry, Communications Director of Explore Branson. “There’s something for everyone on and off the course.”
