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.

A links style course and in typical fashion, more open than it's sister Cotton Creek. However, it is rather challenging.

Centrally located and a well manicured course. A helpful staff and service makes this a great choice for golf when in the Gulf Shores area.

Played this course 2x and love it. Lots of water and challenges - but wide open and fair. Excellent greens. Nice clubhouse with superb chilli. Book ahead as it gets busy on big holidays - thanksgiving now for example. Buy the 6-pack as that's the best deal around at $300. Superb place for Canadians afraid of the cold.
