Are you an avid golfer who is relocating to Springfield, MO?
Then you’re likely wondering where you can lace up your golf shoes and tee up your ball.
The city is home to several golf courses including:
Horton Smith Golf Course
This course was named after former Springfield resident Horton Smith who won the inaugural Masters Tournament in 1934. Perfect for players of all abilities, it encompasses just over 6,300 yards and features well-maintained fairways, rolling hills, and challenging bunkers.
Rivercut Golf Course
Designed by Ken Dye, a nationally ranked golf architect, Rivercut is one of the premier golf courses in the state. With tree-lined fairways, water features, and rolling hills, it rivals top country club courses and is complete with clubhouse facilities and a Rick Grayson golf school.
Hickory Hills Country Club
Hickory Hills is one of the premier private courses in the United States. Once the home course of two-time U.S. Champion Payne Stewart, it often hosts regional and state tournaments. The course features beautiful scenery, large sand traps, and water hazards that challenge beginner and experienced players alike.
Twin Oaks Country Club
Winner of the prestigious 2013 Design Excellence Award, Twin Oaks has welcomed many notable golfers including Arnold Palmer who set the course record in 1963 with a round of 61. Considered one of the area’s finest courses, it includes tree-lined Bermuda grass fairways, bent-grass greens, crushed white granite bunkers, and a waterfall that stands 350 feet on the front nine.
