The Best Golf Courses on Alabama's Gulf Coast

See the five best golf courses on Alabama's Gulf Coast - or should we say Golf Coast - in the Gulf Shores area. Sun, surf and swing, what's not to like?

Hopper Editors - Oct. 26, 2017

With great weather year round and a beautiful coastline on the Gulf of Mexico, it's no wonder that Alabama is such a popular destination for golfing getaways. All throughout the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach region are beautiful, lush green golf courses, many of which are considered to be some of the best golf courses in the Southeastern United States. There's no shortage of sand nearby (beaches, of course, not those pesky sand dunes), so when you're not on the green you can hit the beach or relax back by the pool at your resort.

Kiva Dunes has everything you want for your vacation

The versatile Kiva Dunes resort can be whatever you want, or need, it to be. It can be a perfect stopover for a romantic getaway or the ideal spot for a family vacation. But one thing's for sure, golfers will love it! Its course was designed by two professional golfers, including 1976 U.S Open Champion Jerry Pate, and is nothing short of a pristine paradise in the heart of Alabama's Gulf Coast. So whether you're looking to work on your golf game, or take in the beautiful vegetation, Kiva Dunes offers the whole package.

Craft a dream vacation at the Craft Farms

Whether you're planning your perfect golf getaway or just looking for the ideal banquet hall to host your a huge party or wedding ceremony, Craft Farms is a picture-perfect resort with an ample dose of Southern charm. It also has a 36-hole public golf course designed by none other than golf legend the Arnold Palmer, which is a great place to practice your swing.

Find yourself at the Lost Key Resort

You're just in tee-time at the Lost Key Resort, in neighbouring Perdido Key, Florida. The resort is enveloped by scenic island vegetation and natural resources that is protected by the state. Its championship golf course was redesigned by the Arnold Palmer Design Group in 2006 and is now a par-71 course. But novices needn't despair, as each golf hole has five sets of tees to offer players of all levels a fun experience.

Work on that golf (and racquet) swing at the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club

Tucked away in Mobile Bay, Alabama, the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club is suited to those seeking out the finer things in life. Professional golfer Earl Stone designed this 27-hole course and did so in a way that would accommodate golfers of any skill set. For a break from the golf course, the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club offers up any number of racquet sports to partake in, no matter if tennis or squash is what you're after. Then, once you've gotten in your fill of physical activity, try the Peninsula restaurant, or top off the evening with a refreshing drink.

Enjoy one of Alabama's best golf courses at the Rock Creek Golf Club

Called such for the flowing Rock Creek that travels through the 18-hole golf course, visitors will find the prestigious Rock Creek Golf Club located at the eastern point of Mobile Bay in the charming city of Fairhope, Alabama. Not only does the golf club play host to several championships each year, but the stunning banquet halls hold numerous events, from fundraisers to weddings. The resort also boasts a restaurant, sharing a name with the location, where patrons can indulge in some fine American fare. Burgers and golf, anyone?
