The 7-bedroom units are comprised of three levels, over 3,500 square feet, and six private bedrooms featuring king-sized beds and private baths. The Bunkroom features three sets of twin bunkbeds and a bathroom. The spacious, well-appointed kitchen is on the main level, the lower-level kitchenette has a refrigerator and wet bar. The 10-bedroom Lodges sleep also provide three levels, over 4,900 square feet, eight private bedrooms featuring king-sized beds and private baths, and two Bunkrooms. The main-level kitchen includes two refrigerators and dishwashers. The lower-level kitchenette adds a third refrigerator and wet bar.

“Our Reunion Lodges are first class and have been a big hit,” said Gary Nelson, Thousand Hills Golf Manager. “They’re ideal for our Stay and Play Package groups, have beautiful course views, and, of course, include our prime central Branson location.”

Big Cedar Lodge continues astounding the golf world with an ever-growing portfolio of remarkable courses designed by some of the biggest names in golf. Ozarks National – designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw – opened in May 2019. Payne’s Valley, by Tiger Woods and his golf architecture company TGR Design, is nearing completion and will be announcing opening plans soon. When it does, Big Cedar will be home to five course options, including Buffalo Ridges Springs (Tom Fazio), Mountain Top (Gary Player), and Top of the Rock (Jack Nicklaus).

With those spectacular playing options leading the way – by arguably the greatest collection of iconic golf legends ever assembled in one place – the amenities and accommodations must be top notch as well. Indeed, they are, with unique stay-and-play packages pairing golf with spa, shooting academy, and guided fishing options. https://bigcedar.com/packages/golf-stay-play/
