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... More

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

Couples day on the course. Laid back atmosphere. Course is definitely not a resort course but was nice to play. Forgiving fairways and large greens make it great for average golfers.

We were scheduled to play 36 holes here last week and the course is nice enough to do that. It's wide open and there are some fun holes. The staff was great and bartender and pro were super nice. Sounds like more than 2 stars, right? I rank this DEAD LAST of the 5 courses we played in the area,... More

A great course to play if you are in the Gulf Shores Al area. It is close to the beach and the course if challenging yet not too hard. Price was good..........$25 plus $15 for a cart. Played as a single and was done in 2.5 hours. Played during the week so that helped. Full grill menu and the staff... More

I was told that Gulf State Park Golf Course had the best price for a driving range. Not so! The best place is located in Foley with a friendlier atmosphere. I walked in to Gulf State and asked how many balls you got for your money and I was informed the precise number. Most driving ranges have a bucket out... More

This course is awesome played it and even after all the rain it wasn't bad. And the price was the best deal in South Baldwin County for a round of golf.
