Great pro shop at Cotton Creek

Wanted to offer my compliments to "Paola" in the pro shop. She is friendly, courteous and a huge golf club asset for us visitors. She was extremely helpful to my wife and I as we wanted to purchase clothing items as mementoes of our visit. Paola made it fun in doing that. A great day at Cotton Creek??

We play here all winter and i had to pass on my compliments to Paola in the golf shop. She is always friendly and very kind and helpful. This is a very busy place at times and she still tries to stay composed and smile on her face. In today's world you don't seem to see this much.
She is a great asset for this golf shop.

Must Play

This course is a must play if you're looking for a course in the Orange Beach area. Staff is great and the course is fantastic. Plus, they make a great apple cider old fashioned. :)

Enjoyable round

Very enjoyable round with good playability while still moderately challenging. Most challenging were the greens which were very fast and in great condition

Great Time in Gulf Shores

We purchased a Craft Farms 6 pack in November to cover our golf plans for a brief stay in Gulf Shores. We actually played both courses over 3 days, Cypress Bend once and Cotton Creek twice. Both courses were in very good condition for the time of year. Staff at all levels provided us with a very warm and friendly reception. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course and would certainly play it again. Great value for the money.

Fun course, great people

This is a very good course run by great , friendly and accommodating people. Their clubhouse is closed for repairs, so the off.course amenities are lacking. Course was in very good shape and the layout is challenging but fair. Would play again.

Good course, nice people.

We played on a Tuesday in 3.5 hrs. Excellent. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The course was in good shape, maybe a little rough around the edges, but not bad. Would play there again.

Nice course

Nice course in good shape. Only problem was there were a lot of wet spots from overwatering greens or broken sprinklers. Seems like it was an issue somewhere in every hole. Not due to rain however. The amenities were non existent due to remodeling I guess.
