The gates were opened to the public this morning at 7:30 a.m. as Big Cedar Lodge’s Legends of Golf Presented by Bass Pro Shops teed off.
The tournament is being hosted on two different golf courses: Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge Springs.
Top of the Rock Golf Course, designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson, features fairways stretched over beautiful Ozark scenery for an unparalleled golfing experience. The view from the cliff top is definitely one to be admired.
Buffalo Ridge Springs Golf Course is an 18-hole public golf course designed by golf course architect Tom Fazio. Golf Digest has deemed it to be the #1 public golf course in Missouri. Buffalo Ridge has been newly renovated to host the Legends of Golf Tournament.
