Top of the Rock

Top of the Rock offers a one-of-a-kind golf experience thanks to invaluable design input by golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, plus personal modifications by Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. The natural Ozarks topography adds a unique twist to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, which features 9 Par-3 holes with magnificent views of Table Rock Lake. Before his passing in 2016, Arnold Palmer was able to make his mark on the facilities with Arnie's Barn Restaurant and Pro Shop as well as the Arnold Palmer Practice Facility, which features 16 target greens, recessed lighting and teeing decks, and a new and very large sinkhole that opened up in May of 2015! It's been nearly 2 years, and we're still trying to find the bottom!

Because this is the only tournament on Tour using a Par-3 course, the format is a little bit different at Top of the Rock:
