True to its Palmer design, this traditional 18-hole masterpiece was laid out to challenge rather than intimidate, with numerous risk/reward opportunities throughout. Golf Digest has consistently rated Cotton Creek as one of the Best Places to Play! This 4-star course, located in Gulf Shores, Alabama, features tree-lined, rolling fairways surrounded by lakes. The lush course is challenging for low handicap players but with five staggered tee boxes, it is a fun challenge for golfers at any level.

Lush fairways with lots of mature trees and good character. Greens were too soft and slow, but rolled smooth enough to score some long putts. I really appreciated the friendly staff both on the course and at the clubhouse!

Greens are always in pristine condition. Rest of course has gone slightly down hill over the years. Cart paths have gotten to a point where repairs are needed in a major way. Craft farms is still a great value, but I would put Kiva Dunes...More

Tee to green the condition of the course is up there with any you can play. Greens are not super fast but they rolled true. People are very friendly and the warm up area is top notch. Layout is fun and also challenging.
