Golf Mountain Top

This is Nature’s Course

Bass Pro Shops founder and noted conservationist Johnny Morris teamed up with World Golf Hall of Fame legend Gary Player to create a world-class 13-hole short course that delivers an unparalleled experience for golfers. Sharing a similar passion for nature and golf, and through a joined pioneering spirit, they created a renowned golf experience for all skill levels. The course routes through unforgettable rock formations and includes some of the most dramatic views in the Ozarks while delivering a rewarding experience for all skill levels. Thousands of hours of painstaking pick and shovel excavations revealed 300-million year old limestone formations, creating an over-the-top experience that golfers will never forget.

"People in America should really make an effort to come and see what exists here. It’s beyond one’s belief.”

- Gary Player

HOLE-BY-HOLE

Before you experience the courses that make up America’s Next Great Golf Destination, take a hole-by-hole tour to prepare yourself for the splendor that is Big Cedar Golf.

Hole 1 · Par 3

This short opening hole eases golfers into the challenge ahead. Take in the views, but avoid the left side bunkers on your way to an easy par.

Hole 2 · Par 3

One of the more challenging holes on the course. This long uphill par 3 is made even more exciting by the heavily sloping multi-tiered green and left side bunker. A par here is a great score.

Hole 3 · Par 3

Accuracy is key on this elevated tee box. The green is protected by bunkers short, long and right. Being the highest point on the course, tee shots are easily affected by the wind.

Hole 4 · Par 3

It may be the shortest hole but it’s not the easiest. The thin green is protected by a bunker long and a dramatic false front. Make a confident swing to avoid a difficult up and down.

Hole 5 · Par 3

This inviting downhill tee shot makes way to a green that is severely downward sloping from back to front. Too much spin could force your ball to the wrong tier and creating a challenging putt.

Hole 6 · Par 3

The short par 3 is heavily guarded by bunkers left and right. The three-tiered green can also make for a difficult par depending on the pin location.

Hole 7 · Par 3

The #7 teebox is one of the most picturesque spots on the course with beautiful views of the Ozark Mountains and the valley below. The downhill par 3 leads to a green that slopes away from the tee boxes making it a challenge to hold the green.

Hole 8 · Par 3

The start of the home stretch. This long par 3 is defended by bunkers left and natural limestone formations on the right.

Hole 9 · Par 3

Don’t let the limestone rock and caves to your right distract you! This hole is protected by the largest bunker on the course. Hit a focused tee shot to the green that slopes downwards from right to left. Exit right to the catwalk…

Hole 10 · Par 3

After a scenic walk through the exposed rock, you find yourself on top of the golf course overlooking the 10th hole and clubhouse. Wind plays a huge factor on this stout tee shot with bunkers left and long of the green.

Hole 11 · Par 3

The longest hole on the course. Use a long iron to hit this massive green and avoid the bunkers on the left side. If you bail out short and right, you’ll find a safe landing space with a clean line to the green.

Hole 12 · Par 3

From the tee box, you’ll have a beautiful view of Payne’s Valley, designed by Tiger Woods & TGR Designs. The #12 green slopes downwards from right to left and is protected by bunkers on both sides.

Hole 13 · Par 3

This finishing hole is only 95 yards from the back tees, but the elevated green slopes downwards from back to front. The limestone rock formations and views from the clubhouse make it a finishing hole to remember. Cap off your round with a refreshing drink at the Mountain Top Grill.
