Golf News in Branson, MO

Branson Creek and Murder Rock golf courses, located close to the Branson Airport, were purchased by Johnny Morris in 2013. Branson Creek has undergone a major redesign by Tom Fazio and has been renamed Buffalo Ridge. Buffalo Ridge Golf Course offers incredible beauty and nature including native grasses and free ranging buffalo from nearby Dogwood Canyon.

Buffalo Ridge Golf Course hit the news when it announced the PGA Tour will sanction a new event named “Big Cedar Lodge Legends of Golf presented by Bass Pro Shops.” The event will take place from June 2-8, 2014. Former players like Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson will make up the two man team competition conducted over 54 holes. The event will take place at the Par 3 Top of the Rock course and the 18- hole Buffalo Ridge course. The tournament is expected to bring in nearly 20,000 visitors.

The Top of the Rock course with a Jack Nicklaus design has undergone extensive renovations over the past 7 plus years. This will be the first time a par 3 golf course has been included in a professional championship event. Top of the Rock is a fine mixture between golf and nature with sights such as Table Rock Lake, waterfalls, creeks, and bass filled ponds.
