Exploring Great Golf in Branson, Missouri

I recently made a trip to Branson, Mo., to experience some of the great golf this growing destination has to offer. In addition to the courses we played - Thousand Hills, Buffalo Ridge Springs, Top of the Rock, Branson Hills, Mountain Top and Pointe Royale - the area will welcome a new Coore-Crenshaw course in 2018 and two new Tiger Woods designs in the years to follow. Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player will be in great (designer) company.

Much of this growth can be credited to Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops and the Big Cedar Lodge dynasty.

For those of you who only know the area as a country music hub and museum hot spot, it's time to Explore Branson and take in everything this Ozark Mountains oasis has to offer.

Check out the article at GolfWRX.
