Now's the time to yell "Fore!" on Alabama's Gulf Coast

The fall season might be the best time of year for you to hit the links along Alabama and Florida's Gulf Coast, not only because the courses typically have fewer players, but also because the cool and refreshing air provides the perfect temperature for a day on the fairway.

Now's the time to yell "Fore!" on Alabama's Gulf Coast

Are you looking for a place to hit the links this fall? Not only can you reap the benefits of a slower season when the autumn weather hits, but you can also brush up on your game with just a few other golfers at many of the area's fairways. Plus, nearly all of the houses and condos available for your getaway are located just a stone's throw from some of the best golf courses in the country.

Another bonus to fall golf is that booking your Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach or Perdido Key vacation rental property for the off season saves you money, as prices are lower than those found during the summer.

Fairways to choose from

Now's the time to yell 'Fore!' on Alabama's Gulf CoastYou have so many choices in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Perdido Key that you might find yourself choosing a different golf course every day. With nine signature courses in the area, some of which were designed by Arnold Palmer himself, you can pick from beginner-friendly to more advanced greens.

Cotton Creek at Craft Farms is stretched out on rolling hills in the midst of Alabama's breathtaking Gulf Coast. This particular design was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars by Golf Digest, and because it was designed by Palmer, it's no wonder the course has received such rave reviews.

Another great course for you to try out this fall is the GlenLakes Golf Club, also known as The Vista/Dunes. Designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert Von Hagge, this 18-hole course will make you feel as though you've been transported to a Scottish fairway. It might be a little more challenging for beginners, but if you're up for a rewarding afternoon, it will help advance your game.

To absorb even more of the gorgeous Alabama scenery while you're working on your swing, you may want to experience Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club, which is bordered by the stunning Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. This 820-acre green would be the cherry on top of an already perfect vacation on the Gulf Coast.
