Vacations are times for relaxing. Enjoying the sunshine, going for walks on the beach and having leisurely dinners without a timer. Hitting the links is another great way to fit in some serenity on your Gulf Shores vacation.
At My Beach Getaways, fantastic golf is only 20 minutes aways from our popular Phoenix condominiums on Orange Beach. Here are a couple of golf courses we recommend.
GlenLakes Golf Course Review
The GlenLakes Golf Club is a beautiful Scottish links course. It has a challenging course that is perfect for experts and beginners. Located in Foley, Alabama it is 13 miles from many of our Phoenix rental condos.
The main showcase course is the Vista Dunes. It is a Devlin-Von Hagge Layout, which is 6,938 yards and a par 72 championship test. Visitors remark on it’s “strategic mounding, extensive bunkering and undulating fairways and greens.”
At My Beach Getaways, our clients share that the GlenLakes’ Vista Dunes is a challenging but gorgeous experience. Here are a few pictures from the course. It’s beautiful course that is worth your time! If you love golf and are staying in Orange Beach, this is one of the best courses for your money!
Next door to the Vista Dunes in GlenLakes is the “Lakes Course.”
This course is smaller than the Vista. It’s a spunky 3,065-yard par 35 resort style nine hole course. Grand fairways are ideal for all levels of players. There is water on some of the holes which keeps things exciting!
For the novice golfer, Glen Lakes offers free Snowbird Clinics from PGA Golf pros. Check out their website for more information.
Craft Farms Golf Course Review
Another course My Beach Getaways recommends is Craft Farms Golf Resort. It is closer than GlenLakes with a drive time of about 17 minutes. The tee time pricing is a little higher than GlenLakes. It’s a good course with lovely greens. The landscaping is great, and their 19th hole (the clubhouse) perfectly wets the whistle and has a great menu. Rounding out the Craft Farms Club experience is their very courteous staff.
