Also located at the Top of the Rock is the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail.

Don’t forget to stop at the Bat Bar for a quick refreshment along the way.
America’s Next Great Golf Destination
Big Cedar Lodge is home to some of the most stunning golf courses in the Midwest including Mountain Top, a world-class 13-hole short course; Top of the Rock, the first-ever par-3 course to be included in a professional championship; and Ozarks National and Buffalo Ridge, both 18-hole courses in the rolling Ozark Mountains and acclaimed as some of the region’s best. Adding to Big Cedar’s already impressive golf course portfolio is Payne’s Valley, Tiger Woods’ first-ever public access course. Named in honor of golf legend and Ozarks native Payne Stewart, the course was designed by Tiger Woods and his design firm, TGR Design, and Johnny Morris, a noted
conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops and Big Cedar Lodge.
