Here to Branson
« on: July 16, 2009, 10:15:17 PM »
I am heading to Branson next week and wondered if anyone knew of some good courses to hit between KC and Branson. I have heard Springfield has some good courses. Anyone familiar? Or in Branson? Anywhere on the way down that is worth stopping at? Let me know.

Branson has a course but I think you have to be a member for a time share in the community.

There is an okay nine hole course in Branson in a city park. I threw there in October. Mosquitoes might be a problem. If you're there it's worth playing. Joplin is slightly the wrong direction depending on how you are going down but McLellen (sp) Park is fun.

McClelland.

Also out of the way, by a lot, but worth it is California MO, 9 holer.  It's closer to Jeff City (also a good course) but if you have time or inclination to take the long way home...

is in Branson and if you have a GPS, use it as you have to wind through some neighborhoods to find it.  It is in town, but not busy when I played it a couple of months ago.  Very simple, flat course with a few trees in play.  There is a walking track that goes through the middle of it, but that shouldn't be an issue. 

If you find a Valkyrie in the trees, up the hill on the right of 5, a 6 pack beverage of your choice is in your future :)

All the courses I played in Springfield were pitch and putt and the holes played back and forth around the other holes....I would definately SKIP springfield and go to Neosho, can't remeber the park but it is definately better golf than Springfield....never played Joplin.

I would (sigh) concur Nixa is probably the best in the area, but not on a direct path to Branson.....Joplin is cool, I have not played there since they got new baskets ( I think I hear that).  I think that CD was crying when the new ones went in, because the old ones made him feel big and tall like a man! ;D

Nixa's only about 6-7 miles off US 65 if memory serves....I think it's the best course in town.
