Missouri Golf: Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge

The Top of the Rock Par Three golf course is but one facet of the Big Cedar Lodge located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. The clubhouse overlooks Table Rock Lake, which was the setting for some of the early bass fishing tournaments that inspired Johnny Morris to begin selling tackle and boats. Of course the rest is sporting goods sales history, with the Bass Pro Shops flagship store now located in nearby Springfield. Morris has spent seven years developing the Top of the Rock facility and Big Cedar Lodge so that outdoor enthusiasts can have a vacation destination in southern Missouri. The Buffalo Ridge golf course is only a short 15-minute drive away and is located on one of a series of plateaus, the top level offering a restaurant and clubhouse with a commanding view of the entire lush green surroundings. A mix of taxidermy , a pool table and locker room facility help to provide a clubhouse feel for those fortunate enough to see it. Both course were on display during the Inaugural Champions Tour event.
