Explore Branson Golf this fall for fine courses, best value playing rates

Ozarks area is home to 4 of Missouri's top 10 courses

(Branson, Missouri; November 11, 2020) – The Branson Ozarks is home to four of Missouri’s top-10 rated courses, including two ranked among the Top 100 public courses in the U.S. It’s also home to incredible value this time of year, when greens fees have dropped below peak season rates, yet the weather is invitingly player friendly.

Maple, oak, ash and hickory – not the wooden clubs, rather, the spectacular trees – once again displayed their stunning colors this time of year, complementing the vibrant Branson golf courses that are unveiling special seasonal rates.

The cost to play LedgeStone Country Club – the No. 9 ranked public course in Missouri – decreased more than 35% from peak-season weekend morning rates starting November 1. Players can tee it up on the beautiful Tom Clark designed layout – which features a diverse collection of superb golf holes – for $59 Sun.-Thurs. with cart through February, $69 Fri.-Sat. before 12 pm ($59 after noon).

Big Cedar Lodge’s five courses are offering greens fees that range from $9 to $45 less in November and December than they were until Oct. 31, depending on the playing venue chosen. The biggest value is at Ozarks National (Bill Coore-Ben Crenshaw design), which offers nearly 25% in savings to play the course named Golf Digest’s “Best New Public Course in America” upon opening in 2019.

The resort’s other four courses also enable players to enjoy “nature golf” at reduced rates. They are Payne’s Valley (Tiger Woods) – which includes a stunning island green 19th hole surrounded by towering limestone walls with waterfalls (designed by Big Cedar Founder Johnny Morris) – Top of the Rock (Jack Nicklaus), Mountain Top (Gary Player) and Buffalo Ridge (Tom Fazio-Johnny Morris). Ozarks National and Buffalo Ridge are rated number 1 and 2 in Missouri, respectively, and both rank among “America’s Top 100 Public Courses.”

Tee it up with lower fall playing rates at The Pointe. The 18-hole course reduced its greens fees through Nov. 30. Golf for $45.99 before 9:50 am, $55.99 until dusk. Further savings kick in Dec. 1 when the all-day rate for 18 holes becomes $49.

Greens fees lowered to $79 plus tax on Nov. 1 at Branson Hills Golf Club – the No. 3-rated course in Missouri – and will remain there through February. Further savings can be had by veterans ($69 plus tax) and junior golfers who are 17 years old or younger ($49 plus tax).
