What's happening in Missouri in 2020



2020 is set to be an exciting year for Missouri, with the opening of the first Tiger Woods-designed public golf course, the 100th anniversary of Prohibition and the lead-up to Missouri's bicentennial in 2021.


Payne's Valley is set among the majestic Ozark Mountains near Big Cedar Lodge and is named after Ozarks-native golfer, Payne Stewart. It is scheduled to open in June 2020 and is the first public-access golf course designed by 82-time PGA TOUR winner Tiger Woods and Woods-led golf course design firm, TGR Design. The design of Payne's Valley creates a championship-calibre, family-friendly golf experience that will allow individuals of all skill levels to come together to enjoy the game and the beautiful natural setting.



 

The course will play alongside dramatically exposed rock outcroppings, bold mountain ridges, sweeping valleys, pristine streams and beautiful mature trees, creating a memorable backdrop for the 18-hole golf course. It will have an unforgettable finish where golfers will traverse through a breathtaking natural cavern system to return to the clubhouse.


Prohibition had a profound impact on Missouri where wineries, breweries and distilleries were flourishing before the 18th amendment was enacted in January 1920. Once Prohibition was repealed, Missouri set out to re-establish its reputation as a producer of fine wine, great beer and quality spirits - an effort that continues today.


During Prohibition, Missouri as a whole was compliant, but under political boss Tom Pendergast's control, Kansas City became known as a "wide-open" 24-hour town. The city saw a boom in gambling, nightclubs, bootlegged liquor and illegal speakeasies. Today, there are many modern speakeasy bars in Kansas City and St. Louis where you can sample great cocktails and learn more about Prohibition.


August 10, 2021 will mark the 200th anniversary of Missouri's entry as the 24th state to enter the United States. The bicentennial will provide opportunities for citizens and visitors to celebrate, explore and share perspectives on the state's rich history and culture. Further details on the events to commemorate this anniversary will be issued soon.
