The following are comments we've received from guests about their golf trips and quotes from golf writers after their visit to the area.


We know you need your rest after a great day of golf and our accommodations offer a wide range of options.

"Our group stayed in a beautiful eight bedroom, eight bathroom beach house right overlooking the Gulf of Mexico which offered a spectacular setting. Since we couldn't golf 24 hours a day, we found time to experience some of the local restaurants and regional cuisine, which is big on fresh seafood."
Scott A. Sumner - Golfing News / - August 2009


"We stayed recently at Turquoise Place and it was beyond compare."
Ken Macleod - Golf Oklahoma / - August-September 2011


"The Kiva (Dunes) condos offer all the comforts of home — and make for a pretty excellent way for four friends to spend a long golf weekend."
Don Shell, The Midwest Golf Blog - / - January 19, 2012


"We stayed in a fully-equipped condo at the Turquoise Place, an amazing Spectrum Resorts property right on the Gulf of Mexico. Magnificent views of the beach and a hot tub right on your balcony! How good is that?"

Roy Lang III/ - May 31, 2012


"Gulf Shores, though, stands on its own as a golf destination. In addition to the courses and spectacular beaches, the area also offers such entertainment options as deep sea fishing, kayaking, surfboarding, cycling, water sports, hot-air balloon rides, horseback riding, family fun parks and cruises."
Len Ziehm on Golf/ - March 9, 2012


"And the quality of golf once you get there will have you thinking one big thought: I’ve gotta get back here. Soon. Maybe this spring but definitely by summer. Or … whenever."
Vic Williams, Fairways = Greens/ - April 2, 2012

Golfers on Golf/ - January 17, 2012


"The arrival of winter doesn’t mean golfers in northern climates must stow their equipment until spring. In fact, golfers are encouraged to escape Nor’easters and lake-effect snow with a vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama, a 32-mile stretch of Gulf Coast beach that offers mild off-season temperatures."
Fairways + Greens/ - January 16, 2012


"There’s a nice mix of long and short holes, and for the most part you have to hit it pretty far off line to find bona fide trouble. But it does make you hit shots." (about Kiva Dunes)
Mike Kern - Golf Pennsylvania - Golf Northeast - September 2011


"Certainly, it ranks among the most affordable, friendliest and flat-out fun ways to while away some otherwise chilly wintertime days at the southern edge of the United States."

Dan Vukelich - Chicago Sun-Times / - October 2009

Scott A. Sumner - Golfing News / - August 2009


"Texans headed east for golf vacations will find the Gulf Coast of Alabama to be a tempting - and easily accessible - alternative to more traditional destinations such as Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head. {Nine} top-notch courses are complemented by miles of sandy while beaches, family friendly activities and all sorts of well-priced accommodations."
Jay Tonto - Texas Golfer - February/March 2010


"Gulf Shores' only deficiency is in the number of courses it has to offer. But what it lacks in inventory, it makes up for with value and quality." Brendan McEvoy - Avid Golfer Arizona / - October 2009


"We've done our share of buddy trips, and this is a favorite destination: Alabama's Gulf Coast. First, there's the pleasant discovery that Alabama has a Gulf coast (we've forgotten our geography). Second, this 32-mile coast is second to none, with sugar-white sand, great fishing, fun eating, live music--and sensibly-priced golf."
Golf Partners Club Partner Advice newsletter - January 2011

Jason Scott Deegan - Travel Golf, powered by Golf Channel - December 30, 2010


"If you want to sun on the beach or near one and would like a more laid back golf vacation without all the all-you-can-hold down buffets, busy roads, long drives and lost tourists then the southern region of Alabama is definitely right for you. Their mild climate ensures that you can golf all year round and you’ll remember their genuine southern hospitality for years to come."
