Small course, big value
Its not the nicest course in the area, but the staff more thanmakes up for it. It's close to my home, and the perfect course for the beginning player. Not to mention a wonderful lady off the 16th hole gave the 2 of us a bag of 6 balls each, that collects in her fenced in back yard. It's a short course, perfect for a late or last minute round.
We had a great time this morning. The course is well-maintained, the carts are zippy and the staff is friendly. Looking forward to returning.
Overall, you get what you pay for.
This was a Thursday morning. The course was busy. We arrived thirty minutes ahead of T time. Practice range is pay per bucket. Like $6 for a small bucket, more than enough to get a warm up in. We moved over to the tee box, there was a back up of a good 9 golfers. Our 9:08 start turned into a 9:35 just waiting, and the full round took four hours. Way more time was spent waiting than actually golfing, but maybe it was an off day
Biggest issues: no sand in the shakers, and no refill stations available if you wanted to refill. no beverage cart, which wouldn’t have been that bad if it wasn’t SO hot. Zero shade on the course, and not nearly enough water stations. I think there were two across 18 holes. And finally, NO MARSHALL. Which may be a plus for some. But waiting behind a train of people all day is no fun when one group of 6 is Killing the pace.
The good: the course is a par 64, and actually rather challenging. There are a lot of par threes, and the greens do not make for a lot of easy puts. Most of the holes are shorter, so the old “grab the driver” approach on every par four just doesn’t work. Many of the par fours are 200-250 range and really make you think. The one par five is a blind leg to the left, and can be very punishing if you are too aggressive. It’s a great family course, and the staff in the club house was very friendly and helpful. The place is a great value course.
Advice: if you are a long bomber, you will not love this place, but will appreciate the opportunity to break out those 3 and four irons. Very few holes allow for breaking out a 280+ yard drive shot. If your drive is a very consistent 230-250, and you thrive in the short game, you will dominate. If you are looking for a challenging, fun course on a budget, you will love it.
Great customer service. Excellent value. Course is in great shape
Great executive course. Excellent staff. Great customer service and value!!
Another great day of golf.
Really enjoyed the day of golf. Fairways were very good and the greens are very nice. Staff was very helpful and really made us feel welcomed. Looking forward to playing there again. It also has a great driving range.
Only negative point was no bathroom in the course. No portable toilet either. All said and done, a great day of golf.
The most affordable golf course in the area
This is a perfect golf course to work on your game if you are on a budge or just want to have fun with friends and family. The staff are awesome, and the greens keeper are always working hard to keep this course as green as it can be and the grass cut in regular basis.
Lots of fun !
Short course is made for players of low skill levels like myself . This made for so much fun I played an extra 9 holes . I will play this course again if we come back to gulf shores in the future. !
Love love loved it .
The best pace of play
I normally come to play golf here when I don't feel like paying too much money just to practice. The pace of play is perfect and I get to play at 7 AM in the morning when it's not too hot. Some other golf courses you only get the hot deal during the hottest part of the day.
Greens were excellent; fairways were in great shape. Great value.
An excellent golf course to practice your golf swing
I love this golf course because of the pace of play. I would rather go to a par 64 and keep moving rather than go to a par 72 and wait for 5 minutes on every hole. Plus the staff are awesome, they are always smiling ...
Day out with hubby
Nice Executive course that doesn’t take more than 2.5 hours to play. Enough challenges and only complaint would be no shade and some holes a bit confusing with layout.
I played 18 holes in 2 hours, so I replayed the front. I enjoyed it very much. Used my short irons for approach shots quite a bit.
Quick round with friends
Nice little course. Greens in good shape. A bit confusing where flag was for some holes since our first time playing here. Not overly challenging but used several irons in our bag and had a fun day out with friends.
Excellent Customer Service
This is about my 10th rounds here at this golf course in the morning when there are lots of tourists playing and the pro shop staff named, Jay let me start at the back 9 because it was open at that time. He went above and beyond to accommodate customers wants and need.
