Branson bump. I'll be in town soon. Not tons of disc golf time, so I'm looking to prioritize.

Looks like Treehouz is still a solid choice.

Also Branson Trails looks to have two solid (and very new) courses.

Thoughts? Any others that are worth playing or convenient to get to from other touristy destinations?

Thanks

Treehouz and Branson Trails are 10-15min away from the theater district in Branson. Lots of rocks on fairways at Branson Trails so if you have any prized base plastic mids you may want to swap for something in premium plastic (and you will want to throw lots of mids at Branson Trails...that course will eat you up if you can't stay in the fairway).

There is no longer a pro shop at Treehouz.

Joe's just outside of Ozark is about a 20-30min drive and is a private course. You probably have to contact Joe to play it. I haven't played it since the "baskets" were nothing more than vine wrapped around trees to catch your discs but I hear it's a better course now than when I played it.

If you have a bigger arm then Two Rivers by Nixa is a fun course. It's not very technical and pretty open but there are lines to hit on many holes and there is great elevation. A couple places where navigation may get confusing so get a map.

basically what Notroman said

Trails is pretty awesome, Cedars is very fun. Two rivers is mostly just long and if its hot I wouldnt bother, the mowing is less frequent when hot, and also the course is just brutal to play in the heat. However if you are into mountain biking and have your bike with you, you should check it out. Some really cool trails and downhill courses

Joes is super fun, there are 18 holes of golf with actual baskets in addition to what Notroman was talking about. You will want to get ahold of Joe, Matt or Caleb prior to going out there. Also a nice spring fed creek on the property if you wanna swim.

I can see Two Rivers being brutal in the heat. Not a lot of shade on that course. I've only ever played it in the late fall/early spring when the temperatures were down and the grass hasn't grown in yet. There's a lot of holes I enjoy on that course that keep me coming back.

Thanks to both of you! I should give Joe a call, but I may only have enough time to play the Cedars course and Trails courses. Both sound like a lot of fun.

Two Trails actually sounds really fun to me, as Oklahoma doesn't give me many opportunities to play courses with that much elevation, and my distance game has steadily been improving. Again, the time factor may mean I'll have to look for another chance to get up there. These will be my first MO courses, but I hope I'll get the chance to play many more.

Trails will beat you up and spit you out for lunch, probably the hardest course I have ever played but fun.

If you play, make sure to bring plenty of liquids and snacks and watch your footing (we played the first day it opened) so I am sure it has changed since we were down there.
