The Ascend Hotel Collection by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) welcomes the Thousand Hills Golf Resort to its portfolio of resort, historic, and boutique hotels reflecting their surrounding communities. The brand's latest addition is located in Branson, Missouri, one of the country's most vibrant family vacation towns and the “Live Entertainment Capital of the Midwest.”
Located at 245 S. Wildwood Drive within the Ozark Mountains, Thousand Hills Golf Resort is just blocks from Branson's Country Music Highway 76, which features dozens of live-performance theaters, over 100 restaurants and many other family-friendly attractions. Guests can also kayak nearby in the White River, visit the Branson Mountain Adventure Park, or explore the city's expansive network of hiking trails, lakes, and caves.
The upscale property offers three different lodging options, including secluded cabins, central condos, and versatile lodges. No matter what lodging option is selected, guests are never far from the resort's award-winning 18-hole golf course, voted “Best of the Ozarks” by readers of the Springfield News-Leader and rated four stars by Golf Magazine. The course guides golfers through beautiful hardwood forests, past unique rock formations, and over Ozark streams.
