Course Reviews

An absolute must play if you're in Gulf Shores. Greens were in immaculate condition and challenging to read correctly. To score well you must drive the ball straight but the rough is forgiving enough to score well. You also have to hit the ball straight in order to avoid water hazards and out of bounds (both on the same hole often). The greens hold well if your approach shot is accurate. Some of the tee boxes needed some work but still in good to moderate condition. The course becomes a lot more difficult in windy conditions...which is farly often in the afternoon. The course offers a true test of ones overall game (driveing, iron play, chipping, bunker play and putting. I'd play the course again and again and again because it is worth the price.

A beautiful and challenging course. Bring balls to sacrifice to the water. The marshal was waiting about halfway through the round with iced towels scented with watermelon. Great value.

Exceptional course. Great fairways and greens. Moderately difficulty. A must play for visitors

Great course. Fairways and greens are well maintained. Great practice facility. Highly recommend the double play offer. Well supervised course..Marshalls controlled pace of play. Will play this course whenever I visit Gulf Shores.
