Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris has announced a collaborative partnership with 79-time PGA TOUR winner Tiger Woods and the Payne Stewart family that includes plans to create the first-ever public access golf courses designed by TGR Design. It is being touted as a world-class championship golf course and a family friendly short course at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri.
Beyond the championship course, the partnership includes plans for a future Woods-designed par-3 "short course" on Big Cedar property.
Scheduled to open in 2019 and named in honour of the late Payne Stewart, the new "Payne's Valley" Golf Course will be the first completed fully public-access course in the world designed by Tiger Woods' design firm TGR Design. Being built to showcase the region's natural beauty, the championship course will feature an extraordinarily dramatic 19th hole, "The Rock," that can be used to settle unfinished wagers. The hole was envisioned by nature-loving Morris, and is set in one of the most dramatic geological features imaginable. The challenging but player-friendly walkable course will have an unforgettable finish where golfers will actually traverse through a breathtaking natural cavern system to return to the clubhouse after completing the 19th hole.
