Use this Branson golf itinerary to create a weekend for the record books:
Day 1: Arrival
On your arrival day in Branson, enjoy a relaxing evening of dinner and entertainment. Head to Branson Landing for a variety of restaurants that suit every palate. Catch some live music at Waxy’s Irish Pub or the Paddlewheel, or head to Andy B’s Bowl Social for great food, drinks and all kinds of fun!
Day 2: Big Cedar Golf
Spend today exploring two of the Big Cedar Golf courses in the area. For one round, choose between Ozarks National and Buffalo Ridge Springs, both located just south of Branson. Ozarks National, an 18-hole course designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is part of the Big Cedar Golf family. Buffalo Ridge Springs, an 18-hole course designed by Tom Fazio, has been named the #1 Public Course in Missouri by Golf Magazine. New in 2020, experience Payne's Valley, a special 19-hole public course designed by Tiger Woods!
For your second round, choose between Mountain Top and Top of the Rock. Mountain Top is a 13-hole, par-3 course designed by Gary Player that sits, as its name implies, high atop the beautiful Ozark Mountains. Top of the Rock is a 9-hole, par-3 designed by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer. This course sits high above Table Rock Lake, producing some of the most spectacular views of the area.
While you’re playing, any non-golfers in your party can enjoy shopping at Branson Landing, Historic Downtown Branson, Tanger Outlet Mall or the Grand Village Shops. For world-class pampering, check out the Cedar Creek Spa at Big Cedar Lodge or Spa Chateau at Chateau on the Lake. In the evening take in one of Branson’s outstanding live shows and then rest up for your final day of golf!
Day 3: Ledgestone or The Pointe
On your last morning in town, play Ledgestone or The Pointe. Golf Digest calls Ledgestone “a masterpiece of mountain golf architecture.” Dense forests border the narrow Zoysia fairways, making this course challenging but, nonetheless, satisfying. The Pointe is known as the original 18-hole championship course in Branson and is still a favorite of locals and visitors alike.
If travel plans permit, meet up with the rest of your party and spend the afternoon at Silver Dollar City. Each season brings new festivals with fantastic music, crafts and food. And if you’re a roller coaster enthusiast, Silver Dollar City is a must!
