Thaw out in Gulf Shores

Enjoy great golf in January
As I write this post, I'm feeling a little guilty. But only a little.

Last week saw brutal weather in the Midwest with frigid temperatures and snow. And this week is looking just as cold. Thursday's forecast for Milwaukee calls for a bone-chilling high of only 5 degrees with the overnight low dipping to minus 14.

By contrast here in Gulf Shores, we've been enjoying a very comfortable January. When our Wisconsin friends will be shivering on Thursday, we'll be on the golf course taking advantage of a sunny day with a forecast high in the low 60s. And from there the weekend looks even better with continued sunshine and highs reaching the upper 60s.

So it isn't surprising when I look around the parking lots at our nine signature golf courses that I see license plates from Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa and other Midwestern and northern states. These snowbirds wisely leave those cold winters behind to come enjoy the sun with us in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.

If you're ready to escape the cold for a winter golf trip, the Golf Gulf Shores website has all the information you need. I hope to see you soon.
