Kick Back with Great Nightlife After a Round of Golf

You spent a good day out on the golf course (and whether or not you had an actual good round of golf doesn’t matter—any day on a Gulf Shores golf course is a good day). Maybe you wound down afterward with a Gulf-side walk on the beach, or a dip in your condominium’s pool, got cleaned up and are relaxing as the sun goes down.

Now what?

The night doesn’t have to end there—in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, the night is just beginning. Dinner out on the town is a good place to start, and there are plenty of dining options in the area. Enjoy a relaxing evening at a place like Cobalt the Restaurant in Orange Beach (the view alone is worth checking out). Or keep the evening going by picking a place with live entertainment—places like Live Bait Food & Spirits and Tacky Jacks are good options.

If live music appeals to you, then a Gulf Coast concert might be in order. Kenny Chesney (with special guests Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves) is scheduled to perform in Orange Beach on April 11th.

And don’t forget about the Hangout Music Festival on May 17th – 19th. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are on the books to perform, along with many, many other artists—don’t miss it!

The Gulf Shores Golf Association Mobile Site Makes Planning Easy

Let’s say you’re out to lunch with your boss one day and he mentions how he and his wife are looking for a good vacation location. What do you do?

First, you recommend Gulf Shores & Orange Beach because you know it’s an all-around awesome vacation destination. Then—because you know he and his wife are avid golfers—you direct him to the Golf Gulf Shores website, because you know he’ll find good information and ways to plan a golf vacation there.

But to really drive the point home (and make yourself look good), you pull out your phone and bring up the Golf Gulf Shores mobile site. Now he can explore the nine signature golf courses, Gulf-front accommodations, restaurants, and maps relating to all of this for himself. He can even get a custom quote on a golf package and book a tee time if he wants.

Or, if this scenario never comes up, you can check out the mobile site yourself—it’s convenient planning while on the go. And convenience is key to a relaxing vacation, right?

Make that first step as easy as possible, and get your golf vacation started off right.
