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

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
