Spring Is Coming—Get a Custom Quote for Your Golf Vacation

One month. That’s how long we have until the official start of spring. And according to the groundhog earlier this month, we’ll have an early spring. All of this means one thing to me: time to dust off the golf clubs and prepare for spring golf.

One of the best ways I can think of to do this is to start planning that spring golf vacation. This is easy enough to do—just visit the Gulf Shores Golf Association’s website to get a custom quote on a golf vacation package. Simply fill in information about your desired vacation (arrival and departure dates, number of golfers, desired lodging, etc.) and a quote for your customized golf package is emailed to you.

Then you’re on your way to an amazing Gulf Shores & Orange Beach golf getaway, customized just the way you like it—whether it includes one day of golf during a weekend stay at a beach hotel, or a whole week of golf and a luxurious Gulf-front condo.

I would argue that any time of the year is a good time to golf on the Gulf—you could go down right now and experience much nicer, milder weather than many other parts of the country are getting—but spring truly is an ideal season for a beach vacation and rounds of golf on nine signature golf courses.

I’ll be thinking and dreaming of my spring golf trip over these last few weeks of winter. Can’t wait to get down there!

A Couples Golf Vacation Makes a Nice Gift

Guys, this is your friendly reminder that Valentine’s Day is this Thursday—if you haven’t picked out that special gift yet, you better hurry up and get on that.

If you’re stumped on what exactly that special gift should be, I’d like to make a recommendation: plan a couple’s golf getaway to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. Just you, your better half, and several rounds of golf on the Gulf Coast. And of course the white-sand beach and a Gulf-front condo or hotel, if you want—it’s all part of the package.

That package is easy enough to book if you visit the Gulf Shores Golf Association website—just click on the “Plan” tab on the homepage to get started. Remember, the actual trip doesn’t have to take place this weekend. Booking a surprise golf vacation for any upcoming time of year would be enough of a pleasant Valentine’s surprise.

Spring is right around the corner…perhaps a spring golf getaway, just the two of you, is in order!

Schedule That Gulf Shores Golf Vacation During Mardi Gras for Extra Fun

It’s that time of year again—time for beads and moon pies and Gulf Coast parades. One week from today is Fat Tuesday, and the Mardi Gras festivities are already underway.

If you’re headed down to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach sometime in the next week for a golf vacation, you’re in for a treat. If you’re not, why not plan for it now? A Gulf vacation involving both golf and Mardi Gras events can make for a fun and diverse vacation—and is only possible this time of year.

So your days could go something like this: enjoy a leisurely breakfast in your Gulf Shores condo (or have breakfast out), then enjoy a round of late morning/early afternoon golf at one of the area’s nine signature golf courses. (That’s one thing I love about golf in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach this time of year—the daytime temperatures are perfect for afternoon golf.) Next head off to whatever Mardi Gras event is scheduled for that afternoon/evening.

Some events that are scheduled include LuLu’s Krewe De Lu Roux Mardi Gras Ball on February 6th, The Wharf Children and Pet’s Mardi Gras Parade on February 10th, and the Gulf Shores Mardi Gras Parade on February 12th. Hope to see you there!
