Golf on the Alabama Gulf Coast is an incredible experience already. However, when you add a little extra incentive because of some of the infamous golfers that have helped shape the design of these courses, it creates a magical golfing paradise that you cannot help but fall in love with.
While the greatest players don’t always transition into the best golf course designers, there are several examples along Alabama’s beaches where iconic golfers have left their footprint on the design elements at these courses. It’s an appropriate philosophy as we continue to protect our Gulf Shores and Orange Beach coastline & wildlife by embracing the Leave Only Footprints initiative.
For aspiring or seasoned golfers, a golfing getaway along the Gulf Coast awaits. Here are some greens you can golf year-round and experience and discover the history of how notable golfers influenced their designs.
