Recently, I got in touch with an old friend from school who lives up north (way up north, where it’s actually cold). The topic of golf came up, and I told her I’m planning to play a good bit next week. For her, the thought of playing golf right now sent chills up her spine.
But it’s a completely different story on the Gulf. Just checked the weather forecast for Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, and despite a little rain here and there, temperatures will be in the 60s during the day—the perfect temperature for golf, and the perfect setting for a winter golf vacation. That’s my Christmas present this year: a few nights at Gulf Shores Plantation along with a few rounds of golf. I couldn’t ask for a better gift!
This isn’t our first winter golf getaway to the Gulf, and if you’ve never done it I highly recommend it. It’s easy to plan with Gulf Shores Plantation—the website offers golf package request form on the Golf Packages page to help you get started. And don’t forget that one of the nicest golf courses is right next door to the resort: Kiva Dunes.
I think I’ve sold my friend on golf down here—maybe a Gulf reunion is in order!
