Cotton Creek at Craft Farms
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: True to its Palmer design, this traditional 18-hole masterpiece was laid out to challenge rather than intimidate, with numerous risk/reward opportunities throughout. Golf Digest has consistently rated Cotton Creek as one of the Best Places to Play! This 4-star course, located in Gulf Shores, Alabama, features tree-lined, rolling fairways surrounded by lakes. The lush course is challenging for low handicap players but with five staggered tee boxes, it is a fun challenge for golfers at any level.

This course never disappoints. Whether I'm playing great or not, this course is always fun and the staff are always overflowing with hospitality. That being said, this course is more challenging than it's twin, Cypress Bend. It messes with your mind because at one point you think you're playing links golf, and the next minute you can find yourself in the middle of some trees. There is a lot of sand and water, but if you play smart, you won't have to worry about most of it. The golf shop is well appointed with equipment, and usually during the summer the staff will send someone around with cold towels to cool you off. I would highly recommend this course to golf nuts everywhere.

We played Cotton Creek and found it very enjoyable. The course is beautiful and is in great condition. The staff is friendly and helpful.
The course is challenging - there are a few holes that always get me! But, overall it is a great place to play.

This is our third winter in GS an we always play both Craft Farm courses. We enjoy them both and they are always in great shape. Nice pro shop and restaurant, friendly staff. Depending on how long you will be here, check into their 6-packs. You can use 2 per day and are good until April 1st. We buy our in late fall but I think they may still be available and it will save you some - obviously more, the earlier you buy. Playable for senior women. This course may be a little easier than Cypress Bend - less water to cross for short shooters. Bathrooms on course and beverage cart.

Arnold Palmer designed course. That should say enough.
The course has always been in good shape when I played it and the greens are among the best along the coast. Up for a challenge?? Play it from the tips!!

Craft farms is a great 36 hole golf club. The course is always in the same condition: Great! Greens look like carpet and roll very true. We play every year when we visit.
