Default Ozark Mountain courses...now open (and now dead)

A few years ago, the McCormack family sold the family farm that the Ozark Mountain courses were located. These courses are true jewels, but they were only playable for a handful of weeks in the Spring and Fall. At the time that they were sold, we were worried that the course were going to disappear. We were wrong. The new owner has been working on building up the property, and the three disc golf courses are part of his plan. He is putting in tee signs, establishing permanent tee boxes and mowing the fairways. In short, these course are open. The fee is $10/day to play. I'm as cheap as they come and $10 for disc golf might sound like a lot, but theses courses are worth every dime.

The course descriptions are updated.

Ozark Mountain
Akita's Run
Spencer-Davis

Road trip, anyone?

No idea-no idea-no. The new owner's name is Lewis Null, you can call him at 573-644-4894. He is the man with the answers.

From what I heard/saw out there while playing OMO earlier this month.

The bottom took on a little bit of flooding so nobody was able to camp down there the weekend I went. It was super sandy down there and the creek was so high, you would have to be driving a pick up truck to even drive through it. Once the land settles, I'm suring camping will be allowed down there. We had to camp between 1 and 18's fairways which is all OB territory. The nice thing about camping up top is that is close to where Akitas and Ozark Mountain start. Plus, the Pole Barn is up top. There are decent hotels in Rolla to stay in which is 25 minutes from the property.

Secondly, the cabins. The plan is for brand new cabins to be built closer to the bottom near the river (how many? I have no idea). You can actually see the old cabins when you're playing Spencer. I THINK these cabins should have full plumming. IDK about electricity. These cabins should be sweet to rent out, especially during tournament weekends. Speaking of, word is that there is going to be more tournaments held out there this year. They have already held 3 and the Ozark Harvest is scheduled for late October.

Lastly, overall course maintence. Ozark Mountain now has turf tee pads, which is awesome! It is much more level now. Also, a lot of the older baskets have been replaced with newer ones and if I can remember right, some of the baskets have been concreted. If you haven't been for several years, the lake on hole 1 on Ozark Mountain has been removed and the basket was moved WAY back and to the right. The hole changed from a potential deuce hole to a legitimate shot shaping par 4. As a matter of fact, a lot of the holes on all the courses have been pushed back over the last few years. A lot of work has also been done removing thorns and nettles. I know it's not perfect out there, but it is certainly better now.

I want to finish by saying, I don't work for Gateway or any of the people involved with the property. I have been there to play on 8 or so occasions. I have also met Dave and the new owner on several occasions and they seem very enthusiastic about the potential opportunity that the land has. I think that their ultimate goal is for the whole property to be used as an outdoor sports complex. The disc golf courses only scratch the surface of this huge property.

I hope this helps! And I highly encourage people to go over there and play some of the nations best courses!
