What Golfers Have In Store for a Gulf Shores Golf Getaway
Imagine striding down the fairway of the 18th hole facing the daunting prospect of a putt inside three feet to make eagle! It may seem trivial for those who don’t golf, but for any aspiring golfers out there, you will know the exhilarating thrill that you feel after hitting the 3-wood of a lifetime to set up a perfect opportunity for eagle.
Reminiscing over that experience in Gulf Shores, Alabama is already making me itch to get back on the golf course. You may be wondering what Gulf Shores has to offer for the golfing community. This part of Alabama is a golfing region that offers a variety of courses to suit both your ability and preference. We may never have the opportunity to play golf courses around the world that our PGA Tour counterparts are familiar with, but when you have championship courses such as those on the Alabama Gulf Coast, we can all have our moment in the spotlight.
After reading this post you will be inspired to clean off those golf shoes, pack your clubs and grab that box of balls you received for Christmas before heading to Gulf Shores to experience exactly what I am talking about.
Let’s take a look at some of the golf courses available along this stretch of Alabama coastline.
Peninsula Golf Club
A 27-hole complex offering perfectly manicured fairways and lightning-quick greens, the Peninsula Golf Club is a challenging course even for the most talented of golfers. I was fortunate enough to play here and can honestly say that this is one of my favorite courses throughout the States. The layout of the course is a credit to the designer, Earl Stone, and the condition is impeccable year-round.
Situated adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, visitors to this course are presented with breathtaking scenery and a relaxing ambiance as you make your way around the Marsh, Cypress and Lakes courses.
