When planning your vacation, it’s important to remember all the Alabama Gulf Coast has to offer. Sure, there are the famed white sand beaches, miles of lush nature trails and some of the freshest seafood in the United States, but what’s left for the next day?
One of the greatest ways to really get in touch with the allure and beauty of the Alabama Gulf Coast is to spend some time on one of the majestic golf courses. Whether you are a scratch golfer looking for the next big challenge or you just want to take your family out for a day on the links, there’s something here for you.
Cotton Creek Golf Course
This course is for those of you looking for a challenge. The Arnold Palmer designed, 72-par, Cotton Creek Golf Course at Craft Farms has a magnificent layout. If the more than 20 years of Alabama Gulf Coast history isn’t enough to pull you in, maybe the 7,000-plus yards of perfectly manicured course and lakeside Cotton Creek clubhouse will.
If a beachside golf course dancing right along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico is more up your alley, Kiva Dunes may be just what you are looking for. Designed by former U.S. Open Champion, Jerry Pate, Kiva Dunes can also brag about its ranking among “America’s Top 100 Best Public Golf Courses,” in Golf Digest. We can’t guarantee that you will break par, but the surrounding 3,000 feet of private beach front property, fitness center and full-service clubhouse will be sure to make you feel like a champion.
Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club
If beachfront putting is not really your style, perhaps the Mobile Bay adjacent, Earl Stone golf course at Peninsula Golf and Racquet club will be to your liking. With classic Southern hospitality such as chilled apples at the first tee and their friendly, caring staff, you won’t be able to blame your slice on the lack of amenities.
Now that you’re planning a trip to our Gulf Coast, be sure to consider one of our beautiful golf courses as a destination. You’re guaranteed to find serenity teeing off at one of these locations. So, what are you waiting for? Make a tee time and get ready for the best game of your life! Don’t forget to stay in a local vacation rental.
