The Gulf Coast is a stunning attraction for vacationers looking to enjoy some fun in the sun. While most visitors will take the opportunity to explore the stunning beaches of the region, some will also choose to get some of their exercise on the golf course. Though there are a number of great golf courses in the Gulf Shores area, vacationers staying in or near Perdido Key can get their 18 holes just around the bend at the Lost Key Golf Club.

Challenge yourself at Lost Key Golf Club

Sprawling across more than 6,800 yards of well-manicured greens, this Arnold Palmer-designed course has a par of 71 and proves to be a challenge to players of all skill levels. The championship course is unique thanks to its inclusion of sea dwarf paspalum grass, a breed that allows for smoother rides and perennially green fairways. Lost Key was actually the first course in Florida to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary, a distinction that celebrates the course's considerable efforts to preserve the local environment and wildlife.

Since opening in 2006, Lost Key has proven to be one of the most popular courses on the Gulf Coast, thanks in large part to its 13th hole. This short par 3 has three distinct areas for pin placement, and since the green is flanked by bunkers on both sides, it can require a steady swing and good aim to avoid these traps. This unique setup has earned it notoriety as the course's signature hole, and caused many players to whoop with excitement when they sink that final putt.

When everyone is ready to kick back, you'll be pleased to find the Lost Key Golf Club's elegant dining room, serving breakfast and lunch for an affordable price. The dining room can also be reserved for special events, so if you are planning a dinner party while visiting the area, this may be the perfect place.

Gather your golf buddies and their families and stay together in a 5-bedroom condo in Perdido Key. Or arrange for a quiet 1-bedroom Perdido Key condo for just you and your spouse. No matter how many people you bring, you will each create an abundance of amazing memories of Lost Key Golf Club and Perdido Key, Florida.
