Set among the majestic Ozark Mountains near the Big Cedar Lodge, Payne's Valley will be the first TGR Design public golf course in the United States.
The design of Payne's Valley looks to create a championship-caliber, yet family-friendly golf experience that will allow individuals of all skill levels to come together to enjoy the game and the beautiful natural setting. The course will play alongside dramatic exposed rock outcroppings, bold mountain ridges, sweeping valleys, pristine flowing streams and beautiful mature trees which create a memorable backdrop for the 18-hole golf course.
Sprawling, wide fairways will showcase playabilty, while also allowing strategic angles and shot values to be emphasized to challenge experienced players. The green surrounds are designed to promote creativity and a variety of recovery options, while the fairway rough will be maintained to low heights of cut to further promote a fun, enjoyable golf experience. Once completed, Payne's Valley will complement the expansive amenities at the premiere wilderness resort and family destination located in Ridgedale, Missouri.
The world-class course will conclude on the spectacular 19th hole designed by Johnny Morris, Bass Pro Shops and Big Cedar Lodge founder. The striking par-3 hole plays to an island green surrounded by streams and waterfalls flowing down exposed rock walls to close the round.
