Great layout. Dune course was fairly easy but Vista course has a lot of character. A lot more challenging. Looking forward to challenging it now that I've been out on the course and have a better idea what's waiting for you around the corners and realize there's times to attact and other times to be wise.

I have played this course every time I visit Gulf Shores and am usually impressed and it is worth the green fee. It is a good layout and the back nine is much tougher than the front. Our foursome went out as the 2nd group out of the day at 7:37. Unfortunately the range didn’t open until 8. We were following a 3 some. There wasn’t a beverage cart so we had to stop for refreshments after the front 9 so we let the 4 some behind us go thru at the turn. We played the front in 2 hours which is a good pace. We played holes 10 and 11 and got to the par 3 # 12 and had to wait 10 minutes on a maintenance guy who was top dressing the green. Now we have 4 members in 4 separate carts behind so we speeded up our game so we wouldn’t hold them up. The maintenance guy made a few swipes and then just drove off. We were in shock that he had already done holes 13 thru 18. I know greens need to be top dressed, but in the middle of the our round? Unbelievable.

Course was in good shape. A few fairways were soggy from being over watered. Other than that everything else was great. Greens were in great shape and putts roll true.

I am not sure how to rate the course, because of the gnats that were around my groups, legs, arms, and face. The lady working inside told me that this was normal and they sold a bug spray to help with the problem...Which I hastily bought, unfortunately it seemed to have no effect. The only relief from the bugs came from a 20 minuet rain shower, but it took only 5 minuets for them to return.

I don’t know that I can blame the course, probably not, but I feel confident, that if other courses in the area have the same problem...I won’t be playing anywhere.
