Played here on Tuesday 4/17/18 and had an enjoyable round. Bunkers are very well maintained and the fairways were wonderful as well. It plays longer that the score card indicates..............but well worth the time to play it! Carts could have used GPS in them, that was the only blip on the day!

Highly recommend playing this golf course. Bring your camera because there are some outstanding views you will want to capture. The clubhouse and entrance makes you feel you are at a private club. The layout was terrific. There are many tee boxes to choose from. Most of the tee boxes are elevated and hitting into beautiful valleys. Number 18 was fun because you were hitting straight up the hill. The greens were a little slow. They probably have to keep it this way due to the rolling terrain. Rough wasn't as nice as I was expecting but still playable. I would definitely play this golf course again.

Very hard course. Long, plays much longer than listed on card. If you aren't a long hitter it can be brutal. Large greens that are hard to putt. Lots of elevation change. Great looking holes. Sand traps in disrepair on many holes.

To me this will always be the Payne Stewart course as it was the first; irrespective of what Johnny Morris does. This has always been a top-notch golf course and a great track - this has not changed at all! The course is difficult when its cart-path only just because of the routing of the cart paths and the holes. You do get a workout which is what I needed anyway! Staff is great and they are making a name for themselves after losing the tie-in with Payne Stewart.

If you're a good player, you'll love the course. If you're like me - that is to say lousy with occasional flashes of brilliance (and an equal amount of cheating), you can still love this course, but you must resign yourself to the idea that you're dating above your station, so to speak. I was lucky enough to play alone today and one I played through the only foursome on the course, I was alone. There are no flat lies on this course (to include 3-foot putts), but that is the result of the breathtaking landscape into which the course is carved. I lost 6 balls today (lousy as I am, that's an anomaly), because the rough is rough, and thar be snakes in them woods! At a certain point, I felt that feeling we all feel, and then I looked up. And I saw a par-5 that reminded me of a Bob Ross painting, lots of happy little trees and a fairway that journeyed off into the distance. I put away my concerns for any flashes of brilliance, cheated a little more than usual and enjoyed tender fairways, undulating greens and elevation changes that forced me to take photos at every opportunity. Play the course, and if you're good, it'll push you. If not, relax and take it in.

Super friendly staff, made it easy to find my way. I'll be back.

The starter got our foursome out early so we were anticipating an early finish, but it was not to be. The foursome ahead of us was drinking and the marshal came by on hole 15 to check a complaint from behind us. We weren't being pushed and were keeping up so we let it slide even though tree were two open holes ahead of the offending group. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

It was a quiet day at the course and I was immediately greeted in the parking lot upon arriving. The starter was incredibly friendly and helpful in getting me set up with the pro shop and driving range. They had a cool little chipping facility next to the driving range that I enjoyed as well.

The course was beautiful with an abundance of elevation changes making club selection vitally important. Many of the greens are well protected with some obvious sides to bail out on if you aren't feeling particular accurate.

Overall I loved this place. The only thing that could have improved this course would have been me being a better golfer... I really explored the whole course.

The is not for beginners course. Having extra balls is beneficial. It was very fun for a 86+ golfer. Just hard. It is called Branson Hills for a real reason. The hills and water is everywhere. I'm sure after 3/4 times of playing the course I might break 90.

Course is beautiful and was in marvelous shape. My wife and I have played over 300 courses throughout the US and this is right up with the best of them. Interesting fairway grass with sharp edges and don't know if the grass type or recent rains were responsible for seeming lack of roll. Only real complaint was that the course required a lot of hilly walking even when riding a cart. This was tough for us old geezers. However, the sheer course beauty and condition more than offset the complaint. Played in 3-1/2 hours and it was like playing our own private course.
