I was so disappointed that the Payne Stewart name is gone. I asked why and was told they no longer wanted to pay the foundation fees. With the name gone, so is all the memorabilia. Only thing left are the chairs in the grille but those will be gone soon. They have until October to remove everything Payne Stewart. I... More

Ron, I am also very disappointed to hear that we were not able to deliver an exceptional golf experience. This type of review, although is not pleasant, is appreciated so that we can continue to resolve problems and improve our performance. In reference to the name change this action was necessary as our prior contract with the Payne Stewart Foundation... More

Played the Payne Stewart Golf Club, which is now known as Branson Hills (or something like that) twice with a group of golfing buddies. The course is a decent layout in good shape. The holes are difficult and require accuracy with your shots. The driving range is in poor shape and probably the worst part of the course. The clubhouse... More

Fairly expensive $99.00 for adt, they gave my son a JR rate of $35.00. The second time they played it was less, gave them a... More

This was a beautiful setting for golf. The pro shop staff were very polite and helpful as we set out for the day. Service was terrific. The course is in tremendous shape. It was very secluded and quiet throughout the round.

We just love this course, good eye candy, always in great condition and challenging/rewarding regardless of your tee box. Great clubhouse, friendly and accommodating staff.

You will find this course long and challenging with rolling greens and hills everywhere. We had a great time here. The fairways are nicely mowed. It is a beautiful course with the Ozark countryside all around you. It was quiet and peaceful on a weekday afternoon. In the middle of nature's finest, we saw woodpeckers, fox, turtles, and many other... More

My husband played here in the afternoon through a discounted price from a web site. It is a tough, long course with heavily tree-lined fairways and a lot of water. It is a par 72 and about 6900 yards from the silver tees. It is a beautiful area. The course was in excellent shape. The Payne Stewart memorabilia was fun... More

This is definitely a long, challenging course. I imagine it would be gorgeous in the summertime. As it was, we were there after heavy rains and snow so it was cart path only. You will get a workout on those hills if you have to stay on the cart path!!! They have a nice putting green and driving range, which... More

This is one of the most beautiful courses that I have played, and it is also very challenging. Lots of hills and valleys, with rarely a flat lie. Greens are a challenge to putt, with lots of break and very speedy. This is a fair course for all handicaps. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the course was in... More

Played in mid October. They had a big rain about three days prior and the course held up well. It was not as difficult as reviews talked about. Like any other resort course you are just not familiar with it. I would recommend the grill it was great after the round.
