When making that packing checklist, be sure to include the clubs. Alabama’s Gulf Coast is home to 15 courses – many located right in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach with several others within a one-hour drive. With courses designed by legends like Arnold Palmer, Jerry Pate and Earl Stone, golfers of all skill levels can tee it up and still be back to the beach in time to enjoy the rest of the day. Players can choose from 9, 18 or even 27-hole (for the serious golfer) offerings. All courses are open to the public and most have clubhouse restaurants to grab breakfast, lunch or a few beers.
Coastal Alabama Golf partners with nine courses and offers “Stay and Play” packages for golf groups and corporate outings and will create custom golf experiences or book individual tee times. Visit GulfShores.com/Golf to learn more.
