Golf courses in Branson area

Playing golf next week in Branson (Wed-Fri) and considering the following courses:

Branson Creek, Payne Stewart, Ledgestone, and Murder Rock.

Any info about ratings, conditions, or suggestions would be appreciated. It's a guy trip for above average and experienced golfers.

check out 1branson.com forums and ask your questions there. Specifically ask a poster by the name of notjlb.......he seems to know a lot about Branson golfing.

Branson creek and Payne Stewart are far and away the best 2 public courses not only in branson, but all of SW MO/Northern Ark. Branson Creek was the first of the two, both owned by Troon Golf. I have played both many times, and I prefer Branson Creek, but not by much. I prob feel that way because I've played it more, and I shoot better there because I'm pretty familiar with the layout. Branson Creek has no clubhouse, just a double wide trailer. I know, it's weird. Payne Stewart has a beautiful clubhouse. Both courses are immaculately kept, Payne probably a little more so. Just seems like they have more $$$ to work with there. I have played golf all over the country, and these are two of my favorite courses. If you can only play 2 courses in Branson, play these 2. Ledgestone is nice, but not comparable in my opinion. Don't go to Murder Rock. It's right next door to Branson Creek, has a great clubhouse, but the course is nowhere near comparable. Don't waste your money. Look around online and you can play Branson Creek and Payne at a very reasonable price. I hope you are excited to go play these courses. You're in for a pleasant surprise.

Check out http://www.explorebransongolf.com/. It's the Chamber of Commerce golf site and has excellent info (unbiased) on all the courses. I agree w/ the above that Branson Creek & Payne Stewart should be on your list. You will also enjoy Ledgestone and I think Murder Rock should be a consideration. Some ratings have these three courses in the top five in Missouri. You'll have a great time.
