POOR VALUE FOR MONEY
Course is stunning and in great shape (except for thin fairways that will grow in over time), however, for the price ($195) we would much rather play Buffalo Ridge ($135 - just as stunning and also in great shape) right next door. Ozarks National did not provide as many services as Buffalo Ridge for that much higher price.
Though their website says "Enjoy Complimentary On-course Snacks With Your Round" they were out of hot dogs & buns at the turn, out of ice and water at the turn (on a 90 degree day), no beverage cart, no ranger (waited 20 minutes on several tees behind two very slow foursomes), no food or beverage at the clubhouse. We paid for bottled tea and were going to have to pay for chips too but the worker let us have the chips free since there were no dogs/buns.
For the significantly higher price, we just didn't feel it was worth it. We played on Monday, Sept 30, 2019.
Dropped the wife at the Spa and enjoyed one of the most scenic courses ever played. Vistas from every hole. Lots of width and big greens but trouble if you hook or slice. Great condition for a young course. Requires a strong tee shot on most holes but not intimidating.
What Johnny Morris is building here is one of the best kept secrets in the golf world. His eye for detail and no budget approach shows the confidence he has that this will become one of the premier golf destinations in the US.
I will be back!
One of the best you can play in the American interior
The team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw have built a near-spotless record of quality golf course designs across the world over the last 30 years. Their latest effort upholds the high standards to which they are justifiably held.
Ozarks National is a tremendous complimentary course to Buffalo Ridge Springs. BRS is a modern resort-style course, with lots of eye-candy features and a cart-mandatory layout. ON is a more classic test that is walkable, wide and firmer than its older sibling. The routing meanders along ridgetops and provides spectacular views as well as a high degree of playability, thanks to its grand scale. When the grandeur of it threatens to overwhelm a player, C&C place smaller tests like the par-3 8th and 17th at critical junctures. It is a golf course one would never tire of playing.
