As a 70-year-old 8-handicap golfer who has played golf all my life and in nearly every state, I can recognize a really nice golf course when I see it. The staff here is super-nice, and the layout is decent, but the conditioning, other than the greens, is very mediocre. The fairways are cut VERY tight, so if you like that,... More

This Arnold Palmer designed golf course really is fun to play. Regardless of tees played, it offers a rewarding challenge any month of the year. It fashions a very good golf course spaciously throughout a residential development. I highly recommend it.

I have only played Cypress Bay, which was very enjoyable. Is is a fairly open, but challengable course. The course is in very good shape, with pretty fast greens. The people there are great, from the bag boys, to pro shop staff, very friendly and super helpful. You will definitely have a great time playing either course.

Just about everything was top notch at this course. Greens were very large and in near perfect shape. Fairways nice and wide and in particular #13 fairway was superb in my opinion. Helpful pleasant staff. Had a beverage cart traveling around the course. The course was very pretty. For the wife and I it was $180 for a round. I'd... More

Sometimes no course maintenance is a good thing! Seems like all the courses in the area had been punched at the exact same time! So my usual vacation courses were not playable and I had to get my golf fix. So I ended up having to take a gamble. I was not disappointed. The course was well maintained, the fairways... More

While this is one of the more expensive courses in the area, the price is reasonable compared to other golf resort locations. We visited in early March and we played a couple of other courses that were still brown. This course was lush-- fairways and greens-- and in excellent condition. This is a true country club experience on a great... More

I really enjoyed my day of golf at this very nice golf course. From the time I arrived till the time I left the staff was all very nice and willing to do anything to help me out. This is the first and only course I have played at in Gulf Shores, but I know when I am back down... More

Excellent course and helpful staff. Cypress Bend shares a clubhouse with Cotton Creek and the bar/resaurant was a very slow operation. Breakfast sandwiches and coffee took well over 20 minutes for a carry out order. Pack food or hit the cart girl if you are hungry.
