If you’re not familiar with Gulf Shores, there’s seven really solid golf courses to choose from. I visited for the first time last fall and was impressed about how the area has come back from that horrific oil spill (see my story here).
Leading the pack is Kiva Dunes, a Jerry Pate design considered among the top 100 public golf courses in the country (see lead photo). Arnold Palmer built two courses, Cotton Creek and Cypress Bend, at Craft Farms. Local architect Earl Stone crafted 27 holes at Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club and Timbercreek and 18 at Rock Creek. I’ve never played The Golf Club of the Wharf or Glenlakes, but they are options as well.
Gulf Shores is a great buddy or family vacation. There are cool places to hang for the guys – like the Hangout Bar, which I reviewed here – and fun places for the kids, too. The beach or a nearby waterpark come to mind.
The best part about Gulf Shores? It’s affordable, unlike most spring break beach destinations.
