The Alabama Gulf Coast has some great golf courses, lots of fishing opportunities, exciting nightlife and delicious food. Try for the elusive hole in one or perfect your golf game on one of the area’s 15 courses, some of which are PGA and Golf Digest rated. They are designed by some of golf’s greatest players, including Arnold Palmer, Jerry Pate and Earl Stone. The variety of courses will test every level of golfer, and will inspire you to return to play more.
Stay and play at your favorite Gulf Shores golf resort, such as Kiva Dunes Golf Club or The Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club making it easy to get a quick start to your day on the greens. Or consider booking a beachfront condo or private beach house. All are close to a number of area courses. When you book direct, you deal with locals who are not only knowledgeable about the area, but who are also dedicated to providing excellent customer service throughout your visit. They will assist you with finding lodging options to fit your travel style and budget, near the courses you plan to play.
After a day or two on the golf course, try your fishing luck, and make your dreams of catching the big one come true. With more than 1,000 square miles of artificial reef zones just off the coast (the largest in the country) you’ll be in angler heaven. And with one of the largest fishing charter fleets in the Gulf, there are more than 100 experienced captains ready to take you out on the water to help you reel in the catch of a lifetime. Book your charter trip today.
Once you’ve returned to shore, have your catch cooked at more than two dozen restaurants. Relax and take in the beautiful views at one of the waterfront restaurants and savor a delicious meal. After dinner, listen to some live music featuring local and well-known artists, or soak up the warm Gulf breeze on an outdoor deck and savor your favorite brew or cocktail. It will make you wish you could take this piece of paradise home with you.
