Great golf experience

This was an unbelievable course and just overall golf experience. My brother and I are both college students and wanted to take advantage of the 50% off for student promotion, but it was going to end 2 days before we arrived in golf shores. I emailed Mr Ryan Mello and asked if he could possibly extend the promotion and he emailed right back informing me that would be no problem. The staff was wonderful especially Mrs Maurine! Thank you guys at craft farms!

I played early morning and was paired with one gentleman. We didn’t see anyone else on the course until the 16th hole. Great layout, fair and challenging. Course was aerated the week before so the greens bumpy. Looking forward to playing there again to see what the greens are normally like. Staff from the bag drop area to the bartenders in the restaurant were awesome!!! I will definitely play there again!

The course had been aerated just a few days before otherwise I would have given it five stars all the way around. For what it cost us to play it was a tremendous value.

Another Great Experience at Craft Farms!

I play here often, in fact, I'm considering joining the club as soon as I acquire a home on the course, which I working hard to make happen! I had a couple of out-of-town guests who were first-timers at Cotton Creek. Paola at the desk in the Pro Shop was cheerful, friendly and helpful. We had a delightful lunch, hit a few range balls and teed off right on time. We all loved the course and the play was challenging because it was windy and was my guests first, but certainly not their last, time to play it. All in all...a great day!

Staff was unorganized and rude

I was early for my tee time and the starter told me to go ahead about forty minutes early. As I approached the 12th tee, I was accosted by a course ranger. He was rude to me and accused me of playing without a starter’s permission. There was absolutely no one on the course and I was enjoying my round until I was abruptly interrupted. To say the least, I will not be back. The Pro Shop seemed indifferent to the ranger’s issue with me. I was charged $95 for the round and was treated like a second class citizen. I still can’t believe the way I was treated.

The facility is great

Right when you pulled up the staff immediately put your clubs on a cart and we’re very friendly overall. The practice facility is great with two putting greens a chipping green with bunker and a full driving range with free balls. The courses were in great shape for this time of year and had very smooth greens. Overall great place to play

So fun!

During spring break, 2019, we decided to go golfing. Our group of four included two recreational golfers and two newbies. We all rented fantastic Callaway Rogue clubs and headed to the first hole. From the time we drove to the clubhouse, hit 9 holes, and dropping off the rentals, our experience was nothing but fabulous. Kevin and Paola were welcoming, helpful, and full of enthusiasm. We had such a great time, we returned two days later. I would highly recommend golfing at Craft Farms golf course. There are many courses from beginners to expert, everyone can golf. Thanks group and the next time we are are in the Gulf Shores, we will make tee times!

Just right

Beautiful course with lots of water. It's challenging but very playable. Well maintained, but pace of play was slow. There was a foursome in front of us that was very slow. A marshall would have been nice to speed them up. We started at 1:15 and finished at 5:45, waiting on almost every hole. Almost dark. I'd certainly recommend this course though.
