Fairly nice course, decent price

It was busy but it didn't take that long to play (less than 4-1/2 hours). The course had a lot of character (read: sand traps and water). We would have gone back again, but the... read more

I really like this course. It was long and had a lot of dog legs. It was completely different than my home course. The value was out standing. While there may be better courses in the area I found this one fun and 1/2 the price. It was close to the beaches and condo we rented. To top it off... More

While vacationing in Gulf Shores area, played Gulf State Park Golf Course. Was surprised they had senior rates. The course was in very good condition for February. It was a fun course to play. Lots of snowbirds.

We were here in October 2014, and the weather was 80 or better every day for two weeks! Grant, in the pro shop very friendly, and had no problem getting on in early pm. The course is pretty much wide open for duffers like my wife and I, and water hazards were at a minimum, as were sand traps. Play... More

Greens were the slowest we played all year. This could be a nice course but it seems poorly maintained. Very disappointed, and definitely not wort $40.

Very playable course for all skill levels. The course has very few blind spots but several holes with water obstacles. Staff is very nice and there is a good snack bar.

We played 9-hole twice during our week stay at the campground. Good value for the greens fees but as is typical drinks were expensive. Paid over $20 for a 6 pack of Coors light.again - that's typical of most courses. Greens were pretty well kept but brace yourself for a bumpy ride- the cart paths need some serious work. Not...

I play this course often and the improvements keep on coming. At the height of the summer the fairways are excellent, however if you land your ball in the rough its is at the mercy of the nature could be hard or soft do to the heat and amount of rain. The greens are well kept. I love the fact... More

As I pretty experienced golfer I enjoy coming to different parts of the country and trying out several kinds of golf courses. The refuge/Gulf state park course was a diamond in the rough! It's off the beaten path quite a ways but not too far out of the way. It's a well maintained older course. The back 9 could use... More
