Explore Branson Golf for Memorable Family Trips in the Missouri Ozarks this Summer

03 June 2024

There are few golf destinations in the U.S. as family friendly as Branson, an award-winning vacation sweet spot that is known for its lively entertainment theatres, scenic beauty, family friendly attractions, and its 10 golf courses (with an 11th currently being constructed).

Branson is ideally suited for families thanks to the array of vacation options available. Here are some popular things to do in Branson:

  • Golf: Play some of the best golf courses in Missouri and the country (five of the state’s top 10 ranked courses are in the destination including the top four, three of which are nationally ranked).
  • Silver Dollar City: Explore this iconic, time-period theme park with thrilling rides, live shows, and craft demonstrations.
  • Ozark Mountains: Unspoiled nature highlights the area aesthetic, including through the golf courses, five of which are certified by Audubon International for enviro and sustainability best practices.
  • Lakes: Enjoy water activities at Table Rock Lake, Lake Taneycomo, and Bull Shoals Lake; from water skiing and bass fishing to chilling on pontoons with family and friends.
  • Live Entertainment: Experience Branson’s shows, ranging from music concerts and comedy acts to acrobats, variety performances, and more.
  • Museums: Two of Branson’s museums are among the finest in their genre – Titanic, with its incredible displays and interactive storytelling, and Ancient Ozarks Natural History, with historical U.S. and Native American artifacts of top-tier quality.
  • Shopping: Since when do kids like shopping? When they’re in Branson. Dick’s 5 & 10 is a throwback to knickknack stores from the mid-20th century in historic downtown Branson, while Branson Landing is a modern, waterfront town center with boutique and outlet shops, restaurants, and interactive activities for children (trains, bowling, water fountain light shows with music, and candy, ice cream, and pizza shops).

All 10 of Branson’s golf courses offer junior programs and pricing, forward tees, and other youth friendly offerings. The array of unique courses provides a spectrum of experiences – from brawny, championship-style layouts that delight trophy course hunters, to a collection of more player friendly designs, there’s something for everyone’s tastes.

The golf destination is easily reached by vehicle thanks to its middle America location (one-third of the U.S. mainland population is within an 8-hour drive). Those who prefer flying have many flights from which to choose via Springfield-Branson National Airport (SGF). Branson Airport (BKG) offers other options, primarily welcoming private flights although Sun Country Airlines offers service to Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Visitors can create any number of stay-and-play itineraries due to the destination’s vast array of lodging options and proximity of each course to one another.
