Thousand Hills Branson Golf Course Gets a Makeover for 2013
For twenty years, Thousand Hills Golf Resort has provided their guests with the best golf experience and condo and cabin rentals in Branson. This 18-hole golf course is nestled in the heart of Branson, just off of Highway 76. Over 25,000 golfers visit the course each year, and many guests return to Thousand Hills time and time again.
According to a press release, Thousand Hills Golf Resort has been making some changes to its course over the past year. In 2012, the resort began offering senior flags to guests who are 55 years old or older. This allows them to drive in the fairways when others cannot. The response to the change was a positive one. Guests liked the convenience of taking fewer steps to get to their ball.
New golf carts and cart paths have also been part of the changes Thousand Hills has made. Because the golf course is situated in the beautiful Ozark Mountains, the terrain can be tricky to navigate. Some holes on the course play downhill, and cart paths were previously situated at the top of these hills. Now the cart paths extend right down to the hole, and golfers no longer have to walk down a flight of stairs during their game. An interview with Chad Hamlet revealed that he and his son Gabe find their golf game much more convenient with the new cart paths in place. Thousand Hills hopes to continue to make their guests’ golf games even better with the newly re-routed course. Hamlet said that a game of golf (18 holes) typically takes 4 to 5 hours. With the route changes, Thousand Hills hopes that a game of golf will now take 4 hours or less.
Additionally, Thousand Hills has given guests options when reserving tee times. Hamlet said that the Thousand Hills website has made reserving a tee time online especially easy, and that their system is user friendly and easy to navigate. While at thousandhillsgolf.com, Hamlet recommends signing up for Thousand Hills e-mails. He said that there are great specials available just by signing up. Guests can also call to reserve their tee time.
Finally, Thousand Hills is having a party April 1 – 6 to celebrate the changes that have been made to the golf course. This will be the first time that guests will have the opportunity to play with all of the new changes in place. Great deals will be available on food, merchandise, and golf throughout that week. Thousand Hills appreciates their guests’ patience as they have worked on these changes for the last couple of years.
Thousand Hills Golf Resort is located just 2 blocks south of the Grand Palace and the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre off Highway 76 in Branson. To reserve a tee time, call 1-877-262-0430 or go online to thousandhills.com/branson-golf.
