Arnold Palmer Practice Facility

Perched on the side of a bluff with a cascading waterfall, the Arnold Palmer Practice Facility is a breathtaking facility featuring 10 target greens, recessed lighting and multiple teeing decks that offer a one-of-a-kind  experience. Nature played a key role in the development of the practice facility, and from an environmental standpoint, the synthetic turf is easier on the delicate natural balance at Top of the Rock, with no need to water, mow or use chemicals on the practice course.

After dark, 10 fully-lit target greens and three tee decks with recessed lighting allow for a one-of-a-kind golf experience (offered seasonally). Grab a bag of balls and spend an unforgettable evening on the range.

  • Pricing: $17 + tax per bag of balls
  • Includes access to the Arnold Palmer Practice Facility and complimentary rental clubs.

Cathedral of Nature

After a sinkhole opened at Top of the Rock Ozark Heritage Preserve in May 2015, Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris went deep into a national treasure hunt that might reveal a hidden, secret passageway and massive cave system underneath.

By the Numbers:
Referred to as the Cathedral of Nature™ today, excavation crews have removed 1.2 million yards of earth and 82,600 loads of dirt and rock, in the hopes of discovering a passageway to connect the system and reveal a new wonder.

  • Surface Width: Originally 70 feet wide, now 350 feet wide.
  • Surface Length: Originally 100 feet long, now 600 feet long.
  • Depth: Originally 40 feet deep, now 200 feet deep.

Crews will continue to work in search of a new connection, though Morris is pleased with the amazing findings already revealed.
