Spring Golf Vacation

Spring is in the air and it is time for a golf getaway! Are you planning for a family reunion, a friends’ getaway, or a business trip? The Gulf Shores & Orange Beach area is definitely the ideal place to swing down south for a challenging and fun round of golf.

There are seven signature golf courses in this gorgeous area. You can choose to play at one course or you could mix things up and play a different course each day. Either way, you and your group will be happy with the breathtaking scenery offered at each one.

There are so many condos and beach houses along the Gulf Coast it can be an overwhelming task to figure out just which one will be the right choice for you and your group. You’ll most likely prefer something within driving range of all of the golf courses.

Tying all of these details together is easy to do—just visit the Gulf Shores Golf Association website to get a customized quote. Simply filling in the information such as the number of people in your group, golf and accommodations preferences, etc. will have you one step closer to a memorable golf vacation!

Plan Your Golf Trip on the Go

Did you know that we have a mobile site? While you can still go to the web version from your smart phone, there really isn’t any need. It is simple and easy to navigate your way around the site on your phone. Plus, it’s convenient because you can plan your golf getaway on the go!

On the home screen of the mobile version, you will see the PLAY, STAY, DINE and MAPS & Directions icons in the middle. These options are exactly the same as they are on the web version. Tapping the PLAY icon will lead you to a page with the name and description of each course. The STAY option takes you to list of the accommodations included in some packages. Descriptions of each are also included. Pressing the DINE icon will bring you to a page with the names and details of some local restaurants. MAPS & DIRECTIONS will lead you to directions for each course, accommodation and restaurant listed on the previously mentioned pages.  

After you have an idea of where you want to play and where you would like to stay, tap the Custom Quote icon at the lower left hand corner on the mobile home page. Once you are there, you can plug in your trip dates, what kind of group you will be bringing, the golf course(s) you wish to play on, your preferred tee times, the lodging of your choice and your contact information. You will then receive a custom quote for your golf vacation.

Another cool feature is the Tee Time Booking icon located in the lower right hand corner on the home page. This super handy link will lead you to specific tee times with prices while giving you the quick and painless option of booking a tee time right from your phone! Try this site out today and you can have your entire golf trip planned without ever turning on your computer!
