Dads and Golf Go Together Like Sand and the Gulf

If your dad is like mine, he loves golf and he loves the beach. These two factors practically scream “golf vacation in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach!”

So with Father’s Day just around the corner (June 16th), you just might have a great gift idea for Dad here. Plan a golf trip for him, or plan one for yourself and bring Dad (and Mom, of course) along. It could even be a good opportunity for a little family reunion on the beach (beach houses and condos make great lodging for large groups…).

But best of all, he’ll get to play at any of nine signature Gulf Shores golf courses. Scenic and challenging—ideal for the golf-loving dad. And by planning a golf vacation package, not only can you pick and choose which golf courses to play, but you can also ensure you get the perfect accommodations to fit your needs. Stay right on the Gulf so when the golfing is done for the day, you can enjoy the area’s white-sand beaches.

There’s still plenty of time before Father’s Day. Stop over at the Golf Gulf Shores website and start planning that golf getaway for Dad!

Longer Days Mean More Gulf Coast Golf

We’ve reached that wonderful time of year when the days are finally getting longer. More daylight later into the evening hours means more time to do those fun, outdoor activities we love to do during spring—like play golf.

This is a great thing for us big-time golf enthusiasts. It means we’re no longer limited to weekend, daytime hours, it means we can play after work (which is especially nice after a stressful day), and it means we can more easily take advantage of replay options during a golf vacation in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.

Golf replay options are a favorite of mine—play in the morning at the course’s regular rate, then play again in the afternoon or evening at a lower rate. You get the most golf for your money this way, and, especially being in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, you can work in other activities—like a trip to the beach or a favorite attraction, or simply have lunch at the course clubhouse or a nearby Gulf Coast restaurant.

So when you’re in the area for your spring golf vacation, be sure to ask about the replay option. And if you haven’t scheduled that spring vacation yet…well, you know what to do.
