Branson Golf destination adds new attraction; array of amenities ideal for travel getaways to Ozarks

Fastest-growing, most-compelling venue for sport in U.S. ideal for fun on and off the 10 courses

(Branson, Missouri; August 3, 2021) – What do golfers and anglers have in common? They tend to embellish their performance and results when telling others about them. Certain golf shots and fish caught take on greater emphasis than perhaps is warranted. Branson is the ideal destination for both recreational pastimes and the subsequent cock-and-bull stories.

The recent debut of Angler's Lodge, the destination’s newest accommodation, and its Tall Tales Bar & Grill – a brand-new over-the-top sports bar near all 10 Branson Golf courses – is the perfect place to relax and regale others with amusing accounts of days spent on the lush fairways and vast lakes.

The full-service restaurant starts with a tasty menu – including blackened fish tacos and Kansas City strip steaks – then complements that with a golf simulator, large screen TVs, arcade games, Ozarks-themed décor and more.

Tall Tales enhances the destination’s unique combination of incredible golf courses and its astonishing non-golf amenities and attractions.

With four of the state’s top-rated courses in Missouri (including the top three), multiple new courses that have opened in recent years (including Tiger Woods’ only public course design in America), and 10 total playing options to choose from, Branson has emerged as one of the country’s best settings for golf getaways.

Three superb lakes offer boating and water sports. Astounding museums – Titanic Branson and Ancient Ozarks Natural History – showcase displays not found anywhere else. Hundreds of restaurants and lodging establishments beckon, along with dozens of live entertainment theaters, outdoor adventures (zip lines, world-class fishing) and award-winning family friendly places (Silver Dollar City theme park).

At the heart of the golf destination is Big Cedar Lodge, home to five golf courses and a plethora of remarkable other leisure activities. Located a few miles from the resort, Tall Tales is one of its amenities and is situated conveniently near the destination’s golf courses.

“Branson has always been coveted by visitors for our wonderful hotels, resorts, restaurants and leisure activities,” said Lynn Berry, Director of Communications, Branson Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Tall Tales Bar & Grill adds another wonderful option to our destination, one that is perfect for golfers, anglers, and everyone.”
