Creatively designed by some of the greatest names in golf course architecture, including Arnold Palmer, Bruce Devlin, Jerry Pate, Earl Stone and Robert Von Hagge, the area offers everything from scenic coast lines to wetland preserves, to rolling hills, to links-style golf, to courses cut right out of an Alabama forest preserve.

A. Our process is very simple, by connecting with our call center and answering a few simple questions we will be able to put your package together fairly quickly. First we will establish your desire for accommodations and golf. Next we will quote a per person price for golf and send your information to our accommodation partners at which time you will receive some accommodation quotes to choose your desired place to stay while you play.

A. Since we promote several different lodging partners, it is hard to recommend just one. We can narrow down these choices with your help. By choosing a resort style condo, a beachfront home or condo, an on-site golf condo or a national chain hotel, we can put you in touch with only the partners that offer your choice of accommodations.

A. All golf package rates quoted will include green fees, cart rental and all taxes. No additional golf fees are required at the course, although, range balls and bag transfers do vary by course.

Most of the groups that take advantage of our golf packages come in February - May or August - November. Summer is typically families on "beach vacations," with great golf still available.
