Gulf Shores Golf

Guys Weekend Itinerary

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

A few days of friendly competition, earning bragging rights and hanging out with your best buddies. If that sounds like a prime way to spend a fall weekend on Alabama’s beaches, we’ve done the planning for you with this three-day itinerary for a guys weekend in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. 

DAY 1

The Ruby Slipper Café

Breakfast

You’re going to need a hearty breakfast to keep your stamina up today. Make a stop at The Ruby Slipper Café in Orange Beach and fuel up on The Peacemaker, two eggs benedicts served on big, fluffy Southern-style biscuits. Don’t forget an order of Pig Candy Bacon!

Golf Gulf Shores

Morning and Lunch

Tee off with the guys on one of the Alabama Gulf Coast’s championship golf courses. Play nine or 18 holes and enjoy courses designed for all skill levels. Your group can also book a private lesson from a PGA pro! Make a few friendly bets to fuel the competition on the course. Loser buys lunch! Drop by the golf course clubhouse for lunch on the greens and an ice-cold beverage. 

Guy getting Spa Massage

Afternoon

Hey guys…have you ever had a massage? Now’s the time! Book a sports massage at The Spa & Salon at The Beach Club in Gulf Shores. Trust us. You’ll be happy you did! 

Luna's Eat & Drink

Dinner

For one of the largest selections of craft beer on tap in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, have dinner at Luna’s Eat & Drink.  Rev up your appetite with the Beer Cheese Dip and Pretzel Bites. Keep the beer theme going with The Beerger, a beer-basted burger on a sweet sourdough bun. 

DAY 2

Balcony Breakfast

Breakfast

Today’s breakfast will be on the go or in your condo. Fuel up on some protein and pack a lunch for a day on the water. 

Guys Charter Fishing Trip

Morning/Lunch/Afternoon

Plan for an all-day adventure and book a six- or eight-hour charter fishing trip. Today is a day for brotherhood bonding as you head for blue water 30 miles or more out in the Gulf of Mexico. Bring a cooler with plenty of water and protein-packed snacks, as well as sunscreen, sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat.  

Flora-Bama Yacht Club Beach

Dinner

Nothing says bragging rights like having a chef prepare your fresh catch. Call ahead to the Flora-Bama Yacht Club to inform the chef you’ll be bringing tonight’s dinner. It doesn’t get any fresher than right off the boat! Order up a locally-famous bushwacker and wait for your prized catch to make it to your table. 

Bushwackers at Flora-Bama Lounge

Evening

You’re only a walk across the road to the legendary roadhouse, Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar. Pop in for live music, another bushwacker and a night of fun.

Day 3

Sunliner Diner in Gulf Shores

Brunch

Sleep in today. You guys earned it! When you’re ready, head to Sunliner Diner in Gulf Shores. This 1950s-era diner serves up a traditional diner breakfast of grits, egg and bacon. You’ll also find omelets and plenty of other options, too.

Beach chair on Alabama's Beaches

Afternoon

After two days of activity, it’s time to relax on the beach. Park your flip flops along Alabama’s 32 miles of white-sand beaches. Play a game of spike ball or just sit back in the sand and catch up on life with your brew crew. Pack a cooler of snacks to tide you over until dinner.

Tin Top Restaurant

Dinner

Make tonight steak night at The Tin Top Restaurant and Oyster Bar. Tin Top, as the locals call it, serves up some of the best dining around. Sample fresh oysters and prime rib that will make your mouth water. Their full-service bar will keep you all refreshed, and the atmosphere is true “southern eclectic” (translation: unpretentious and fun!)
