My wife and I play a round or two at Glenlakes every time we get back to Gulf Shores for our annual vacation. Our most recent visit before this one was in August 2013. Since our last trip it seems like lots has changed at Glenlakes. We have always enjoyed the course and the value has always been great, but this time we learned the course was under new ownership. And we actually had the pleasure of meeting some of the new owners who happen to be the local members. The round of golf was wonderful, the course was in the best shape we have ever seen it in, the new greens are amazing and the price point was still extremely affordable. I think the price could easily double and still be considered a good value compared to some other courses we've visited in the Gulf Shores area.
After our round we stopped in the new bar and restaurant and again were extremely surprised to see an updated menu and new energy in the bar area. We ended up sitting next to a small group at the bar who happened to be a few of the new owners. We hadn't planned on hanging around, but we ended up enjoying cocktails and fun conversations with them for an hour or more. We had a blast thanks to the new local owners!
A great golf experience, a ridiculous value, wonderful people and just all-in-all a lot of fun! If you are in the Gulf Shores area I recommend making it a point to see this great locally owned golf course.
