Golf Digest has consistently rated Cotton Creek as one of the Best Places to Play! This 4-star course, located in Gulf Shores, Alabama, features tree-lined, rolling fairways surrounded by lakes. The lush course is challenging for low handicap players but with five staggered tee boxes, it is a fun challenge for golfers at any level. « less

Our 11yr old played in a Dixie PGA tournament here and the course, the pro shop and the Resteraunt are fantastic! The tournament was early in the morning and the grounds grew were out drying the dew off the course!

Excellent golf courses in top shape - Cotton Creek and Cypress. All the staff was very friendly and helpful, but the bar and table service at the clubhouse was very slow and way understaffed for the amount of folks needing to be served. Plan ahead or bring a sandwich with you.

Very nice challenging Arnold Palmer course, unfortunately it was cold the morning we played so we couldn't enjoy it as much as we could have if we weren't so bundled up. Be prepared to lose a lot of balls in the water.

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!

My husband and his brothers played there and really enjoyed their afternoon. The course was challenging and in good shape despite it being wet from two days of continuous rain. Cart path only was the rule, so they took over 5 hours to finish. They had a discount but thought that the regular prices were not out of line with... More

Greens are fast and true and the fairways are in perfect condition. Sitting back in a residental community it has a country club feel to it, but is open to the public.

This course is one of my favorite courses however its to expensive to play very often. The most true greens in the area. If you can read greens & follow it with a good putt you will score well. Never gets backed up. I just wish they could reduce prices to locals now that I have moved in the area.... More

This course never disappoints. Whether I'm playing great or not, this course is always fun and the staff are always overflowing with hospitality. That being said, this course is more challenging than it's twin, Cypress Bend. It messes with your mind because at one point you think you're playing links golf, and the next minute you can find yourself in... More

We played Cotton Creek and found it very enjoyable. The course is beautiful and is in great condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. The course is challenging - there are a few holes that always get me! But, overall it is a great place to play.

This is our third winter in GS an we always play both Craft Farm courses. We enjoy them both and they are always in great shape. Nice pro shop and restaurant, friendly staff. Depending on how long you will be here, check into their 6-packs. You can use 2 per day and are good until April 1st. We buy our... More
