Adding new approaches, water features and bunkers, Morris and Fazio redesigned the layout to bring players in close contact with nature, including native grasses, rock outcroppings and free-ranging buffalo from nearby Dogwood Canyon Nature Park.
Top of the Rock sits gloriously perched above Table Rock Lake, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding area, an Ozark Mountain oasis of natural beauty. In addition to the outstanding course, the complex also showcases a lighted driving range by Palmer and a putting course by Tom Watson.
