The course at Soldiers Creek Golf Club was designed by Scott Clark, a former Golf Course Superintendent at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear Alabama and the current Superintendent at The Peninsula Golf Club in Gulf Shores Alabama. While this is Scott's first attempt in playing the role of a course architect, it also reveals his depth of experience in the golf course industry. The design goals of building a course that would be enjoyable for high handicappers as well as low handicappers was met in this design. The course features wide player-friendly fairways. Also, water comes into play on only two holes which makes navigating this course easier for high handicappers. A large natural turf driving range and 10,000 square foot practice green is available as a warm-up or practice area. Soldiers Creek Golf Club is owned by the Norman Woerner family. Norman is a member of the Woerner Turf family of sod producers. Woerner Turf is a world-wide leader in turf production. The company provides turf for many golf courses ranging from Augusta National to new courses in Hong Kong. They also supply the turf for the NFL Super Bowl and the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Southern Turf Nurseries provided the Tif Eagle for Soldiers Creek Golf Club. This turf grass is considered by many to be the best-of-the-best turf for southern golf course greens. The fairways and roughs are Tif 419, a dense-growing emerald-colored grass that's perfect for plush fairways.The greens feature Tif Eagle, the newest and best-of-the-best southern turf grass for golf course greens. An increasingly popular choice for new golf courses and redesigns, this turf permits a closer cut, thus allowing for smoother, faster greens. Located only several miles from Alabama's sun-kissed Gulf Coast, this new 18 hole championship course is part of the Woerner Preserve Resort. Our friendly staff welcomes you to play the newest course on the Gulf Coast. Yes, we are now open. Come spend some time with family or friends. Relax and enjoy a round of golf in this natural setting. DIRECTIONS: From I-10, take exit 44 (Gulf Shores Pkwy/Hwy 59 South). Travel south on Hwy 59 for approx. 18 miles. Turn left onto Hwy 98 (at light in Foley). Travel approx. 10 miles to Co. Rd 95. Turn right and go 1 ½ mile. Course is on the left.

Slow greens

Not being familiar with the specific local weather conditions and turf cutting requirements, I felt the greens were slow. Could be the type of grass, height of grass or just rain every afternoon. The course was very nice for the money and it is obvious that they are working on the course and cart paths. I will do it again next year.

Good course

Our foursome was first out and we got hammered by rain and lightning. After an hour or so rain/lightning delay we went back out and played. The course drains really well. We were sent to the back nine first because they were going to top dress the front nine greens until it rained. We played in 2 hours and thought we were going to have to wait when we got to # 1 but luckily a 2 some ( beginners) let us go ahead. The fairways and green are good and they have done a lot of work over the years to keep it in good shape. This course is family owned and operated and is a bit high priced. I would think they are struggling to survive because of their location. The staff is very friendly and treated us well.

Best Value for a Hidden Gem

Some reviews were mixed on this course. But for $45, it’s the best value and certainly a hidden gem on the Alabama gulf coast. If you’re in the area, play it. The course was nearly perfectly manicured, and the only reason I say nearly is because weather conditions didn’t allow the staff to do their jobs to the fullest extent.
