10 golf courses cited among best in Midwest
BRANSON, Missouri – Tripadvisor has named Branson to its just-published “Travelers’ Choice 2023 Best of the Best Destinations” list, including it with other top places like Hawaii, Las Vegas, and New York City.
Among other things, Tripadvisor wrote “The Missouri city of Branson is jam-packed with diversions. Attend star-studded performances at [its live entertainment theatres]; explore Silver Dollar City theme park; get back to nature in the Ozark Mountains and at three pristine area lakes; play some of the best golf in the Midwest; visit museums highlighting the area’s history and culture; or browse the city’s boutiques and outlets. When the day is done, you can decompress at one of the area’s many resorts.”
Branson Golf is the destination home to 10 compelling courses in the southwest Missouri Ozarks near the Arkansas border. It includes six of the state’s top 10 ranked courses (including the top four) and four that have been rated among the best in the country.
Course designs by Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Bob Cupp, Bill Coore, Ben Crenshaw, Tom Clark, Chuck Smith, and Bobby Clampett combine for a diverse yet complementary array of playing options.
Several of the courses have been built in the recent past making the burgeoning travel venue one of the fasted-growing, most-compelling golf destinations in North America.
At the apex of the golf destination resides Big Cedar Lodge. The brainchild of Bass Pro Shops Founder and noted conservationist Johnny Morris, all five of its courses are designated as Audubon International Signature Sanctuary locations for the environmental and sustainability best practices.
While golf is thriving in Branson, it is made more appealing thanks to the destination’s plethora of complementary other attractions as Tripadvisor listed.
“Branson is a favorite destination of visitors thanks to our wonderful hotels, resorts, restaurants and leisure activities,” said Lynn Berry, Director of Communications, Branson Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We hope the Tripadvisor honor inspires travelers to choose Branson for a visit this year.”
