Top of the Rock Golf Course

The State of Missouri, USA

Near the Mark Twain National Forest in southwestern Missouri at Ridgedale, lies the 47-acre Top of the Rock Golf Course, overlooking Table Rock Lake.  Owned by Bass Pro Shops, the nine-hole course is associated with the Big Cedar Lodge.  Over 38% of the property has been kept in a natural state or planted in native grasses, wildflowers (cardinal flower, meadow phlox, river oats, sweet coneflower), or native trees.  But the cart paths have also garnered great interest — they are made from bits of recycled tires.  Recycling doesn’t stop with the cart paths.  The pro shop was a metal building once used as a private hanger for a plane.  Inside the pro shop, the ceiling is covered with tongue and groove wood recycled from a church demolished during the Oklahoma City bomb blast.  Top of the Rock Golf Course became the first Certified Audubon Signature  Sanctuary in Missouri on February 14, 1997.  Visit Top of the Rock at
