Big Cedar Lodge is quickly becoming known as America’s Next Great Golf Destination, with courses designed by some of the top names in golf: Tiger Woods, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
Along with these legendary names, Johnny Morris is changing and growing the game of golf while incorporating the beauty of the Ozarks into every shot.
The Louisiana Golf Association is planning a trip to Big Cedar Lodge for summer 2021. Dates of the trip are August 29 – September 3, 2021. Give us a call at 337-265-3938 if you are interested in playing some of the best courses in the country while enjoying another “Sportsman’s Paradise” in Missouri. Spouses and family are encouraged to join!
Payne’s Valley, the first public-access course in the U.S. designed by Tiger Woods’ TGR Design, just opened at Big Cedar. The Payne’s Valley Cup comes on the heels of PGA TOUR Champions events at Ozarks National and Buffalo Ridge Springs featuring back-to-back 54-hole tournaments televised worldwide on The GOLF Channel. World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson also made his PGA TOUR Champions debut at the Ozarks National tournament, where he ultimately secured a victory.
“The breathtaking beauty and pure majesty of my native Ozarks is something you have to see to believe. To be able to harness this unique landscape and make it come alive through our golf courses has been an honor that has been driven by passion,” said Morris, noted conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops and Big Cedar Lodge. “Tiger and I have a twenty-year friendship that started through fishing and has evolved into the great partnership that created Payne’s Valley. We look forward to showcasing this destination to the world through the Payne’s Valley Cup and truly believe we are creating America’s Next Great Golf Destination.”
Payne’s Valley joins four existing and top-rated courses at the resort – Buffalo Ridge Springs (Tom Fazio), Ozarks National (Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw), Mountain Top (Gary Player) and Top of the Rock (Jack Nicklaus). Ozarks National and Buffalo Ridge Springs claimed the top two spots in Golfweek’s 2020 annual rankings of the “Best Course You Can Play in Missouri.” Ozarks National earned the top spot following its grand opening last year with Buffalo Ridge – last year’s winner – following at No. 2. Ozarks National has also earned ranking as the Best New Course in Golf Digest. Big Cedar Lodge is now one of the best and largest golf resorts, including the top three 18-hole courses in Missouri and two of the most acclaimed short courses in the world. Last September, Golf Magazine named Big Cedar Lodge, America’s premier wilderness resort, as the No. 1 family golf resort in North America, as part of its Top 100 Resorts issue for 2019-2020.
