The first year I went to Gulf Shores (out of 12 times I've been), this is the place where my family and I rented a condo above the clubhouse. Being a golfer, I loved being within walking distance of a putting and chipping green and driving range. The vistas we had from our balcony were gorgeous at sunset. Only problem was that we couldn't fit my whole family on the balcony, hence the reason we now rent a beach house. The other issue was that the women in our family don't play golf, and its a good quarter of a mile walk to the beach. Not fun when you're covered in sand. There is a shuttle that runs, but at that time it ran somewhat sporadically. If you just like the view of the Gulf and LOVE Golf, this is the place for you.
