Three Ways to Make Your Fall Golf Vacation a Breeze
You've waited all year for that first hint of fall air, and now it's here. Then the golf bug hits. It's time to plan your fall migration to the Alabama Gulf Coast for a golf vacation. Get on par with a hassle-free getaway and these tips to make planning and implementing your trip a breeze. 1. Space is the ultimate commodity on any road trip, and especially on an airplane. Yet your golf clubs are an essential part of your golf vacation. What do you do? Most courses on the Alabama Gulf Coast offer the Ship Sticks service. You can have your clubs picked up at your home and shipped directly to the Gulf Shores golf course where you'll be playing. Ship Sticks guarantees on-time arrival, so you'll have everything you need to tee off for a day of beach golf. 2. Don't miss a good golf deal. Fall is a prime time to play a round (or three) in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and surrounding cities. Not only for the great weather and temperatures, but also for the low fall rates on lodging. Find the best lodging specials and packages on our website, and check back often as they change frequently. 3. Turn your golf vacation into a family vacation. If you're ready to get the entire family involved in the sport you love, several Gulf Shores golf courses offer family golf options and junior rates. You can also add on a brief lesson from a PGA golf pro to get them up to speed. But if golf isn't their cup of “tee,” there are plenty of activities and attractions to keep them busy while you're enjoying a day on the greens, guilt free.
