Friendly staff. Course is in great shape. My favorite course in the area.
I would have given a 5 star rating on conditions but the had punched the greens 8 days ago but still were running good
Two of us played on a course mostly empty playing in just over 3 hours. I enjoy the layout even though it may seem short on the scorecard. The wind combined with plenty of water and sand on the course make it a fun challenge. My only criticism would be the bumpy, sandy greens that have yet to heal from being aerated a couple of weeks ago. Also, no beverage cart on the course but conditions were pleasant enough that the water stations sufficed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. In all, a fun round near the beach.
Really great course, wonderful staff
This is my first time playing golf in the area and I didn't know what to expect. I booked the tee time based on the course rating on Golf Now. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the course!
Played this course and Kiva Dunes. Gulf Shores was a better layout and a better value IMO. Course was in great shape although they are getting ready to plug greens in a couple of days. I thought the layout was excellent playing a Gulf course with mature trees all along the layout. Will definitely play again when I return.
Very nice course
Other than price, I would play here all the time. Excellent course
Good conditions tee to apron.
Pretty good fairway and rough conditions for this early in the year, but greens were rock hard. Wouldn't hold high spinning balls hit with high number clubs or wedges. But, I have always found it hard to adjust to bump and run. Also, range is mats only. Despite those things, the Golfnow hot deal made it a good value and the course is scenic and the layout is fun and has a good playing rhythm. Staff could not be nicer, either. Prices in pro shop are hard to beat anywhere.
A Go To Golf Course in Gulf Shores AL
I have played here many times, and I never been disappointed. I am always satisfied and always looking forward for the next time. The staff are always accommodating and treat you like a long time friend. Highly recommended...
Another great round on a beautiful course. Greens are fast.
This course was in great shape!
Friendly staff, excellent playability, and an awesome layout added up to an awesome golfing experience!!!!
Excellent golf course
One of my favorite courses in Gulf Shores. Greens are fast !
Excellent course with tees for all
Great course, great condition, really really fast and well conditioned greens,, wonderful staff.
My only complaint was the ranger permitted a very, very, very slow group of 5 to drag the course with no one in front of them. We still played in a little ove for hours, but three of us would have done much better if the super senors in front of us had the class to allow us to play through.
If we didn’t have a pre-booked tee time somewhere else tomorrow we would play it again.
Nice layout with plenty of hazards.
Course in tremendous shape. Awesome sand bunkers and fast true greens. Pleasure to play.
8 Golf Buddies trip
we found the course to be in excellent shape. Great fairways and greens. Greens were very fast and true. Some thought the price was a little steep. But we will come back.
enjoyed the round and course very much. greens were tough to read, all seemed to have a slope or break in contour. complimentary range balls prior to round.
