Soldiers Creek Golf Club
The course at Soldiers Creek Golf Club was designed by Scott Clark, a former Golf Course Superintendent at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear Alabama and the current Superintendent at The Peninsula Golf Club in Gulf Shores Alabama. While this is Scott's first attempt in playing the role of a course architect, it also reveals his depth of experience in the golf course industry. The design goals of building a course that would be enjoyable for high handicappers as well as low handicappers was met in this design.
The course features wide player-friendly fairways. Also, water comes into play on only two holes which makes navigating this course easier for high handicappers. A large natural turf driving range and 10,000 square foot practice green is available as a warm-up or practice area.
Soldiers Creek Golf Club is owned by the Norman Woerner family. Norman is a member of the Woerner Turf family of sod producers. Woerner Turf is a world-wide leader in turf production. The company provides turf for many golf courses ranging from Augusta National to new courses in Hong Kong. They also supply the turf for the NFL Super Bowl and the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii.
Southern Turf Nurseries provided the Tif Eagle for Soldiers Creek Golf Club. This turf grass is considered by many to be the best-of-the-best turf for southern golf course greens. The fairways and roughs are Tif 419, a dense-growing emerald-colored grass that's perfect for plush fairways.The greens feature Tif Eagle, the newest and best-of-the-best southern turf grass for golf course greens. An increasingly popular choice for new golf courses and redesigns, this turf permits a closer cut, thus allowing for smoother, faster greens.

Food & BeverageFood & Beverage
I have played this place a few times and this is the worst I have ever seen the greens.
Fairways had as a rock and pace of play slow.
A group in from of us had there Dogs with them. Large Dogs on the greens ???
It’s a first for me, when I thought I have seen it all.
Best fairway and green condition around right now
Most courses around this area are trying to come out of winter conditions. This course was green and healthy. Greens were very nice
The course Lay-out is very pleasant. The condition however is very poor. The fairways have a lot of bald spots, and the greens have weeds and grass spots which do not allow for an unobstructed putt.
Soldier's Creek Golf
Track was very nice. Not that long or "tricked up" from white tees.
Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us.
Will definitely return.
Beautiful day after rain
This course is very nice and challenging. Greens need work, but are improving. Staff always very friendly and pace of play good.
Greens just not there yet.
Course is great everywhere except the greens which are in very poor condition...probably waiting for the Bermuda to come back.
So Much Potential
I love the layout of this course. You are out in the woods. Clubhouse is very friendly if a little understaffed.
Greens were in rough shape. Maybe its the time of year. If it were better maintained it would be 5 stars.
It’s like you’re family!
We really enjoyed this course today. The first couple greens they’re trying to kill some crabgrass but everything else was great. When we arrived they were literally like family. They said to call them if we needed drinks and they would bring them out. Really enjoyed the round and many of the holes were very cool I. Terms of layout.
