Cool weather is definitely on the way now. The heat has already come on in my house, and the summer wardrobes have been put away. As for golf...well, I'm not putting the golf shorts away yet.

Fall is by far my favorite time of year for golf. The heat of summer has subsided, but it's far from cold--at least, in Gulf Shores it is. Temperatures average in the 70s during the day in October, which can make that golf swing feel warm and effortless. Combine this ideal weather with the scenic landscape of the area golf courses and you've got yourself a relaxing game of golf.

Late-fall golf rates and vacation package deals make it a great time of year for a buddies golfing trip or even a fall break family vacation. You can check out some of these deals at
