While this is one of the more expensive courses in the area, the price is reasonable compared to other golf resort locations. We visited in early March and we played a couple of other courses that were still brown. This course was lush-- fairways and greens-- and in excellent condition. This is a true country club experience on a great... More

I really enjoyed my day of golf at this very nice golf course. From the time I arrived till the time I left the staff was all very nice and willing to do anything to help me out. This is the first and only course I have played at in Gulf Shores, but I know when I am back down... More

Excellent course and helpful staff. Cypress Bend shares a clubhouse with Cotton Creek and the bar/resaurant was a very slow operation. Breakfast sandwiches and coffee took well over 20 minutes for a carry out order. Pack food or hit the cart girl if you are hungry.

We have played at Craft Farms each of the last three years and it has been a great experience each time. We played Cypress Bend twice this week and despite heavy rains over the weekend, the course was in very good shape (with the exception of some sand traps). The course is challenging but not back breaking. If you play... More

We played both courses here last week and these are the favorites of the 5 places we played in the area (Kiva Dunes; Peninsula; Gulf Shores; Lost Key). Challenging, but open enough to hit driver and even find a few you hit off line. If you're going to Gulf Shores to play, make sure you stop here!

Great value. We did the double play, which consists of playing both courses for $139. Really good deal. The staff was great, the course was beautiful, the greens were extremely true. Cotton creek is the best of the two. Much better course than kiva dunes.
