About Thousand Hills…Bordered by many natural, rolling hills with an award-winning golf course as its scenic centerpiece, Thousand Hills is an expansive, commercial subdivision development filled with numerous attractions, restaurants and theaters planted over a 450-acre area of the Ozarks. Thousand Hills subdivision continues to grow and serve the Branson area as it has for over 15 years.
Anchoring this subdivision is Thousand Hills Golf and Conference Resort, offering visitors over 250 luxury condominium and log cabin vacation lodging options, recreational golfing on a daily fee, 18-hole golf course, seven indoor/outdoor pools, a fitness center, meeting rooms and a convenient heart of Branson location.
Conveniently located in Branson’s city center, guests are close enough to sense the heartbeat of Branson’s hottest shows and attractions, yet far enough to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city.
