Learn to play golf in Gulf ShoresNo matter how many times you've been golfing on a Sunday morning back home, there's nothing quite like spending the day with close friends at a Gulf Shores area golf course. Whether you're taking your buddies out to the fairway or happen to be enjoying a girlfriend getaway, everyone will share the same unforgettable experience at the Craft Farms courses.

Cypress Bend and Cotton Creek

Located in Gulf Shores just minutes away from Fort Morgan and Orange Beach, the two courses at Craft Farms get a boost from the coastal scenery, and you might just feel as though you're walking along the soft white sands of the nearby beaches.

Here you can find not one, but two award-winning courses designed by Palmer himself. These two 18-hole golf courses are perfect for beginners and advanced players alike, making it perfect for young family members to get into the swing of things early on.

At Cypress Bend, which earned four and a half stars by Golf Digest magazine, you'll feel as though you're playing on soft and billowing green clouds. The gentle rolling hills provide a small challenge while helping you feel totally relaxed as you ease into your swing.

Cotton Creek boasts a slightly more difficult course, with the sixth hole being the most challenging fairway of all. With the perfect drive, you and your companions can shoot for a hole-in-one!
