Although Branson Landing’s $7.5 million spectacular music, water, fire, light show is nothing to “putt” around with, it’s not the only attraction “glowing” at the Landing anymore. Glowgolf, LLC has announced the opening of their newest “store,” an 18 hole glow in the dark miniature golf course at Branson Landing.

In a phone interview on March 10, John Wright, chief operating officer said that Glowgolf is a Wichita, KS LLC that operates up to 20 indoor, glow-in-the-dark, mini golf courses nationwide as far west as Seattle, Washington and as far east as Nashville, Tennessee. Wright said they had been trying to get a Branson location for some time and are delighted to finally have their fourth Missouri course located in Branson. He said the other Missouri courses are located in Joplin, Chesterfield and St. Peters.

When asked “Why Glowgolf chose to locate in Branson Landing?” Wright replied, “All the Glowgolf stores [courses] are in shopping malls.” He said they have been trying to get into Branson Landing for some time. When they received the call from General Growth Properties, the organization managing the leasing in Branson Landing, they were ready to go.

Wright said that part of his chief operating officer responsibilities is to help open new courses and train management. He said the manager of the new Branson Glowgolf is Amanda Long.

Wright described the course as a fun filled, affordable, family entertainment experience. In describing the experience he said that florescent course obstacles, golf balls, and putters are combined with black lights to create a unique entertainment experience.

Information received from Glowgolf indicates its Branson course is next to Bass Pro Shops and is open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It also states that guests can play up to 54 holes of Glowgolf with an “Admission” which is eight dollars for adults and six dollars for a child with group and family discounts also available.
