Cotton Creek at Craft Farms is for true golf enthusiasts. It offers tree-lined fairways, doglegs, smaller greens and plenty of risk/reward opportunities. This is the first course designed by Arnold Palmer on the Gulf Coast and has all the earmarks of a Palmer track. It’s traditional, it’s very playable from the up tees, and it has all the challenges even the best golfers could ask for at just over 7,000 yards with a par of 72. You’ll find naturally rolling fairways, large undulating greens and a variety of Southern hardwoods. Like most of Palmer’s other courses, it follows his philosophy of challenging rather than intimidating. And all of that beauty and challenge is just north of the white-sand beaches of Gulf Shores. On-site amenities include the Cotton Creek clubhouse, the award-winning Courtyard by Marriott, and the luxurious Cypress Point condominiums. More Info More Info
