Top of the Rock Golf Course, known as the first-ever Par-3 course to be included in a professional championship, features nature and golf at its finest. Perched high above Table Rock Lake, the peaceful waterfalls, wandering creeks, bass filled ponds and pristine lakes of Top of the Rock complete a true celebration of nature, the Ozarks and the game of golf. The experience includes Top of the Rock, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, an Arnold Palmer-designed Practice Facility, and Arnie’s Barn, a magnificent 150 year old barn re-located from Arnold Palmer’s backyard in Latrobe, Penn., complete with historic photos and memorabilia from Palmer’s career achievements – and houses the Top of the Rock pro shop which features the latest in top-of-the-line logo golf apparel and goods.

The lodge is beautiful by the golf course. Although the 3 restaurants didn't open until 5 PM, the snack bar provided generous hors-d'oeuvres.

Relaxed round of golf, more fun to take photos than fight the numerous sand traps. Taken seriously this is a very challenging par 3, But the views and landscaping and layout are so so terrific who cares, just have fun and have fun taking photos.

The self guided golf cart tour of the waterfalls and cave was one of our favorite experiences during our Branson stay. Take your time and enjoy the views. Be sure to take your camera!

We love renting the golf cart to travel the scenic winding trail that I believe is two and a half miles long. Places to pull over to enjoy scenery, many waterfalls, rock formations, covered bridges to meander over. No time limit, no need to rush....More
