The kids are out of school and it’s time to consider a spot for that quick getaway with your family or friends. Here’s a few options.
Known as â€œGolfâ€™s Ozark Mountain Oasis,â€ the Branson/Lakes Area golf destination is a place where players – and Dads! – can enjoy first-class golf, an array of off-course activities and substantial value.
Pointe Royale Golf Village sells â€œA Day at The Pointe.â€ The special includes 36 holes and a choice of breakfast or lunch for $89. â€œThe Pointeâ€ also offers a â€œ7-Day Pass.â€ For $250, it includes unlimited golf for seven consecutive days. A golfer who plays one round each day would average a greens fee of approximately $35. Visit www.pointeroyalegolf.net or call 417.334.4477.
Pre-pay for your round at Branson Hills Golf Club and lock in a rate of $89 plus tax. It includes one round, any day at any time, which means paying $10 less for the most-coveted tee times (mid-mornings on weekends). Considering Golfweek Magazine ranks Branson Hills the No. 1 course in Missouri, thatâ€™s a solid savings. Please call Head Professional Dan Davis to purchase: (417) 337-2963 x 101.
Consider either of those courses for Fatherâ€™s Day rounds, or select from other great Branson golf options including LedgeStone, Thousand Hills, Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge Springs. Visit www.explorebranson/golf for more information.
Beside golf, there are other options and activities that Dad may appreciate. Chateau Grille’s Champagne Sunday Brunch at Chateau on the Lake (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) is a great place to celebrate before teeing off. Call early to make your reservations (888-333-5253).
The Branson Landing is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and the party coincides with Father’s Day weekend. Start celebrating Dad on Saturday night, June 18, with a free 8 p.m. concert featuring Prince Ivan, Trey O’Dell and a fireworks-filled finale provided by Gateway Fireworks Displays.
Golf season is in full swing at Keystone Resort, with the Keystone Ranch Golf Course opening on Friday, May 27. The Keystone Ranch Course joins the River Course to offer guests access to two award-winning golf courses set in one idyllic Rocky Mountain resort setting.
The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Keystone Ranch Course is set on historic ranch land where original structures and old western heritage remain throughout the course, providing a nostalgic feel amongst the breathtaking panoramic scenery. The Keystone Ranch restaurant, a AAA Four-Diamond outlet, features a stunning dining room plus sitting room, as well as a breathtaking deck overlooking the courseâ€™s back nine, providing one of the best views in Summit County.
Named by GolfDigest 2016 Editorsâ€™ Choice as one of the five best golf resorts in the Rockies/Great Plains, Keystone boasts a beautiful 36-hole golf facility with two authentic and distinct courses. In addition to the Keystone Ranch Course, the Hurdzan-Fry designed River Course offers impressive elevation changes among a modern course design that has been built into the surrounding landscape.
Keystone offers a variety of lodging options, including hotels, condos and townhomes ranging in size from studio to four-bedroom, and four- and five-bedroom private homes, that are conveniently located within minutes of The River Course and Keystone Ranch Course. Keystoneâ€™s Stay, Play & Save packages begin at $153 per person, per night and offer exclusive savings on lodging and golf rates, and include green fees, practice facility access and free nine holes of golf on the afternoon of arrival. Additionally, resort amenities, activities and dining options are all located on-site at Keystone, providing a variety of easily accessible mountain adventures when not golfing.
Keystone is known as a place where families rule, and the resortâ€™s golf professionals and staff are dedicated to the family guest experience. The River Course and Keystone Rach Course both offer up to six sets of tees on each hole to accommodate golfers of all abilities and allow everyone in the family to enjoy the game. Both courses offer a Kids Swing Free program, inviting anyone 17 and younger to play for free after 5 p.m. with a paying adult. Families can also take advantage of Time for Nine rates as well as Starting New at Golf (SNAG), a fun and easy program that begins at just $5 per round, including equipment.
