Instead of singing the “12 Days of Christmas,” you could sing the “12 Months of Golf” and live the reason Alabama’s Golf Coast attracts people year-round to improve their swings and enjoy a round of golf. Average yearly temperatures of 68 degrees give Gulf Shores a temperate climate just right for taking in some of the more than 200 holes golfers can play while visiting the Alabama Gulf Coast. Enjoy the slower pace of life while brushing up on your golf-playing skills.
The Gulf Shores Golf Academy is a great place to start. Offered at three Gulf Shores courses – Kiva Dunes, Peninsula and Craft Farms – resident pro Rea Schuessler helps you hone your skills. Sharpen your skills with group clinics or private lessons. The Get Golf Ready program offers five easy lessons that will have you putting, chipping and driving like a pro during your next golf game. There are Get Golf Ready lessons for men and for women. Clinics include fitness and stretching techniques, drills and tips for practicing, knowledge of basic etiquette and fun games.
Need a great Christmas gift? Give a gift card to one of the many courses. Many pro shops stock the latest in sportswear, gifts and equipment for your golf aficionado and the gift of golf is always the perfect fit. There are great golf vacations still available, and stay-and-play options put you and your golfer close to the action while still being close to the beach. Unwind, relax and experience a whole new state of golfer’s paradise on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
