Freakin' Awesome Course
0 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: - Concrete tee pads with benches at practially every tee
- Quality baskets that are well maintained and properly installed
- Course is well cared for
- Excellent use of the terrain and the old ball course
- Legit pro shop
- Restrooms along the course
Cons: - Tee signs were missing when I played
Other Thoughts: It was free to play when I headed down there the day after Thanksgiving, but it's well worth the $10 or whatever it is. I love the disc golf putting greens. If you hit them just right you can get a pretty good slide going on for your disc!

Easily One of My Favorites
3 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: - Concrete tees
- Quality baskets
- Course located on old ball golf course
- Course is well cared for
- Beautiful course!
- Very good use of landscape
Cons: - Pay-to-play, though the lady at the front desk did let us play for free the Saturday after Thanksgiving
- Needs detailed tee signs - only way to know distance is to grab a scorecard from the front office.
- The only way to know the Par is on DGCR, the scorecard and map do not show par.
- In the fall/winter months, be careful about losing discs among the fallen leaves.
Other Thoughts: - After a couple rounds, this course easily became one of my favorites. I loved holes 2, 6, 18, and 19 in particular. Don't miss out on playing this course.

Pros: - Lots of big elevation changes. Get ready to walk a lot!
- Very neatly cut grass. Some of the baskets even had turf around them like a ball golf course would have.
- Get your throwing arm out cause there is some pretty big throws that you'll have to do.
- Open shots mixed with Wooded shots. They had a good course layout that weaved in and out of the woods that was along the big open fairways.
- It looked like they were building a gazebo at the tee box of hole 1. I always like to see a course that is being improved on. It means that it will become better.
Cons: - Since I had to pay to play I was disappointment in the lack of signs! Sometimes I even got confused as if I was on the right hole. They gave us a map but it wasn't very detailed and poorly made.
- I have seen better concrete tee boxes and like I said before, since I paid to play I expect more.
Other Thoughts: - ITS PAY TO PLAY! $10 per person. If you bring a big group ask for a group discount and she'll bring the price down. She let the kids go for free.
- If you lose your disc and have your name and number in it, the store will try and return it to you if it's found.
-The store had a good selection of discs for sale. They also had a used bin where they sold used discs for $5 a piece.
- There are some water hazards and heavy foliage that could potentially lead to a lost disc.
- Bring bug spray
Definitely worth it if your on vacation in Branson.

Pros: Branson Cedars is a luxury log cabin resort that offers, along with numerous on-site recreational amenities, a high-caliber 19 hole disc golf course. It is built on a rolling expanse on rocky hills and valleys. Elevation is a factor on every hole, water comes into play on four holes.( A nice touch are the welded rebar retriever poles that are along each pond, assisting in reclaiming water discs)
Starting on one and just going from there, you throw down and right, and then two is Very Down and longish to an elevated putting green. And on. The blue tees made for some long holes, many of which turn right. Winds, the poltergeists of long elevated diosc golf, played havok with me on the front nine (not otherwise what you call a windy day, just while I was playing this course).
All in all, this course requires distance and touch, a solid anny throw and some grit. The up and down of this course made shot judgment a very real considersation. Of course, there are few holes where you just stand at the top of the rise and launch a couple all the way down!
Navigation between holes is pretty straight-forward most of the time, but I did consult the map provided by the office a couple of times.
Several holes have red tees, which is nice.
Benches and trash cans... also nice.
Aesthetically, this is a beautiful property. The holes are pretty to the eyes and fun to play.
Cons: Permanent tee signs. The laminated maps are very nice, stapled as they are to a log. Don't get me wrong, I love the log. Mount a nice, classy plexiglass map on it and done and done.
Restrooms. There is a restroom in the main office, which is the hub of 1, 9 and 18, but that's it. Unless you've rented a cottage treehouse...
Pay to play. I was told $5 on the phone, clerk said it was $10 for me. (She did say she wouldn't charge me for my 9 yr old son, so I guess its a wash for me either way)
Other Thoughts: This course seems to be an integral part of the resort, and is well-maintained, pretty and very fun to play. It was very tranquil when i played. There were assorted family groups that I encountered, but largely I had this place to myself. I can also see this place playing differently come summer, as the rough that was burned off when I played will ratchet up the risk/reward factor quite a bit.
I will bring the family, rent a tree house and play this course several more times. Worth making the drive.

Great course, super fun!
Pros: The course is excellent. The scenery is beautiful. There are many challenges including water hazards, hills and many trees. The holes are well laid out, and most are long. An xcellent challenge.
Cons: The signs at each tee could be improved, but the course is not hard to follow.

Pros: many holes that make you take a minute to stop and admire the beautiful property. nice fairways,pads, and baskets, turf greens with a basket stuck on them.
Cons: very little signage, most the laminated paper signs are gone. basket location, I kept thinking that some of the holes could have better basket locations,
Other Thoughts: overall this is the best course I have played to date. but a course of this high caliber has to have permanent signage. In my opinion some of the hole could benefit from new basket locations.

Pros: It's a picturesque course with wonderful vistas.
There is a great diversity of shots: Huge bombs, Water Shots, Elevation, a few short technical shots.
It's very well-maintained
Cons: It had a bit of damage to one tee sign. The tee signs are oddly designed but you can glean the appropriate information you need from them if you take a little time.
The only real con is that I wish the course was 27 holes.
Other Thoughts: Absolutely worth the trip to the course. There are rumors about the course's existence but there doesn't seem to be any interest in pulling it at the moment. Still, I would play it before they start to think about it.

Diamond in the Rough!
Pros: Treehouz DGC is on the Branson Cedars resort and is pay to play unless you stay at one of the properties. Several elevation changes, long and short holes, open fairways, tight wooded shots, water holes, and pretty much all the things that you would look for in a disc golf course. It is very well taken care of. Outstanding concrete tees and several greens are astro-turf. Baskets and signage are all in great condition. Beautiful scenery of the surrounding Ozarks.
Cons: The Journey Post disc golf store/pro shop went out of business, so you have to work with the sales office if you need to pay or rent discs. I was told that the resort owner will be remodeling the old Journey Post location and they will be opening another disc golf shop that will be ran by the resort.
Other Thoughts: This course has it all. If you want a weekend away, rent a cabin at the resort and play as much disc golf as you can take. You will not be sorry. Tired, yes, but not sorry. Enjoy!

Pros: My wife and adult daughter liked this course a lot and they're not avid disc golfers. That alone makes this a great course because my family will go back.
Hole lengths were just right. Good mix of shorter and longer holes mixed up the game.
Terrain changes are great on this course. Plenty of ups and downs to make it interesting. We particularly liked the holes where the tee was high up with the basket a good distance off which made for nice, long drives that hung in the air a long time. Hole 6 was a really nice shot due to this aspect. Holes 2 and 19 were also nice for this type of shot.
Good mix of drives on the old golf fairways and new wooded fairways. The wooded fairways got us out of the sun which is much of the reason I prefer DG over ball golf.
Thanks to the designer for putting disc retriever poles next to the two water obstacles!!!! I can't say this enough because too few DG players bring a disc retriever with them. My wife and daughter used these on hole 4 to retrieve their floating Innova Dragons.
For a private course, the $5 fee was minimal. One spends more on a burger than that.
Friendly staff. Even the grounds keeper talked to us and was friendly.
Conveniently part of the cabin/treehouse rentals so access for someone staying in the cabins is great.
Cons: I don't live close enough to this course
Other Thoughts: I suggested to the desk clerk they rent out floating discs and tell players about them. She appreciated the suggestion as she had not heard of floating discs. While we approached hole 3, we encountered two guys attempting to retrieve non-floating discs from the pond. They lost their disc.
Much of the old golf course was unused so this could easily handle another 18 holes.
