Explore Branson golf for memorable spring trips in the Missouri Ozarks

Destination is home to five of state’s top 10 courses, including top four

BRANSON, MISSOURI – March 25, 2024 – All 10 of Branson’s golf courses have emerged from winter hibernation and are welcoming players to the Southwest Missouri Ozarks with award-winning playing venues throughout the renowned vacation destination.

Like the trees that bud each spring, destination visitors can count on an array of unique courses that provide a spectrum of experiences. From brawny, championship-style layouts that delight trophy course hunters, to a collection of more player friendly designs, there’s something for every player’s taste.

Five of Missouri’s Top 10-ranked courses are in the Explore Branson Golf destination including the top four, and several are top-rated nationally. An 11th course is under construction.

Helpfully, the golf destination is easily reached by vehicle thanks to its middle America location (one-third of the U.S. mainland population is within an 8-hour drive). Those who prefer flying have many flights from which to choose via Springfield-Branson National Airport (SGF). Branson Airport (BKG) offers other options, primarily welcoming private flights although Sun Country Airlines offers service to Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Visitors can create any number of stay-and-play itineraries due to the destination’s vast array of lodging options and proximity of each course to one another. For example, Hiltons of Branson partners with Branson Hills Golf Club to offer discounted golf rounds with stays at either Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel or Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, the modern, waterfront town center filled with restaurants, bars, and other shops.

Lakes, live entertainment theatres, outdoor adventures, and family friendly attractions like Silver Dollar City theme park complement the destination’s golf product.
