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.
10 target greens and three tee decks allow for a one-of-a-kind golf experience included with every round of golf at Top of the Rock.
- Included with the purchase of a round at Top of the Rock golf course

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.
