Super fun golf experience

Played this course about 5-6 times and it's always fun. It's one of the more fun GOLF experiences you could have whether you are a scratch or starter golfer. All walkable par threes. Lots of fun holes and hole in one watches. I actually enjoy this course more than the sister par three course top of the rock and it's about half the price. Gary Player did a great job helping design this gem. One hole you might need a 5-wood/4 iron depending on wind (it's always windy on the mountain top), otherwise it's a lot of 6 iron through wedge. Super fun course.

Exceptional short-course fun

"Golf" has often been thought of in narrow ways, even by the game's more avid players. Big Cedar Lodge's Mountain Top Course succeeds in challenging those preconceptions. It's 13 holes, all par threes, with walking being mandatory. Though a player won't hit many longer clubs than a mid-iron, it is a satisfying golf experience unto itself.

The winding expanse of closely-mown turf knits together the baker's dozen tests, which amble along a ridge top sporting beautiful Ozark views. Limestone outcroppings spring up, creating vistas that might remind golfers more of Sedona, Arizona than Missouri. The greens are undulating and great fun to putt, and there are plenty of opportunities for pars and birdies for golfers of all stripes. Best of all, it's a lovely walk that acts as a great second round of a day, paired with one of the resort's "big" courses.

Outstanding New Course

Wife and I played this walking only course and had a ball. This is the perfect course to play with your spouse or children that have some golfing experience. You have a choice of where to tee off to make yardage fit your game. Longest hole is just over 200 yards at the tips. Scenery is fantastic and you can see the two new courses being built in the distance. Nice pro shop and restaurant. You know its a great course when the on course restroom had heat and AC!
