“The choice and variety of quality golf courses Branson has to offer makes it a great golf destination, whether it’s for a week or a weekend getaway,” said Annette Wood, the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Branson Tourism Center. “The consistent moisture this summer has created a virtual golfer’s paradise with lush fairways and greens that are as beautiful to see as they are to play,” she added.
Branson also has a great variety of quality live shows, attractions, and other activities to complement its fabulous golf courses. As one of Branson’s largest and most trusted Branson travel services, we realize that, with all there is to do in Branson, there are many combinations that could go into planning an itinerary for a Branson golf weekend; here’s a sample itinerary of what a golf getaway weekend in Branson could entail:
Arrive and check into one of the beautiful condos at Thousand Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center, located just minutes from the center of the famed Branson Strip. Unpack and relax for a while before going out to have a delicious dinner at one of Branson’s fine dining restaurants such as the La Piazza. After dinner, enjoy the show it starring the Hughes Brothers and their Families, conveniently located in the same building.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the condo or at one of Branson’s many restaurants, like the Stage Door Restaurant at Welk Resort; it’s just a short 15 minute drive from your condo and right across the highway from Pointe Royale Golf Course. After playing a round of golf at Pointe Royale in the morning, Saturday afternoon would be a great time to visit one of Branson’s many attractions, like Branson Landing, located right downhill from another great attraction, Historic Downtown Branson. After dining at another great restaurant, such as Shorty Small’s, a great way to end the day would be to see another of Branson’s most popular and highly recommended shows such as the Illusionist Rick Thomas, Puttin’ on the Ritz, or SIX.
Tee off early at Thousand Hills Golf Course, located a minute or two away from your condo, for another fabulous round of golf. Afterward, return to the condo to freshen up and check out, then enjoy lunch at Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill on your way home.
