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.

Located only several miles from Alabama's sun-kissed Gulf Coast, this new 18 hole championship course is part of the Woerner Preserve Resort. Our friendly staff welcomes you to play the newest course on the Gulf Coast. Yes, we are now open. Come spend some time with family or friends. Relax and enjoy a round of golf in this natural setting.

DIRECTIONS: From I-10, take exit 44 (Gulf Shores Pkwy/Hwy 59 South). Travel south on Hwy 59 for approx. 18 miles. Turn left onto Hwy 98 (at light in Foley). Travel approx. 10 miles to Co. Rd 95. Turn right and go 1 ½ mile. Course is on the left.

Way over rated

The website raved about the grass at the course that was developed by the owner company. That was a complete over-promise and under deliver. The fairways had little grass and most of the time you were hitting off the ground. The greens were very average and not consistent . Most had little round green growths besides grass. The rough was a different tangled grass that was2-3” deep and dead brown. Way over priced for the condition of the course.

The course is playable at any level

I like the peace and quiet at the course. Although the holes are close to one another, the tree line makes each hole private. One of the most enjoyable in Baldwin County !

Fun, hidden gem for golf

One of my favorite courses. Just enough challenge, very playable course. Very friendly staff, you’re always made welcome..

And a great getaway from the other crowded courses, that typically wind through golf communities (and water!) This course winds through gorgeous wooded area, but offers generous fairways. Great value, especially for the serene environment, and to get lost in your game..

A good golf course to play if you don't want to fight the crowd

I love coming here because, I feel like I have the golf course to myself, it's not crowded with many slow play golfers like some other golf courses I played. However, the ladies tee boxes grass were kind of about 2 inches tall, so I always have to make sure that I teed off looking like low because the grass was not cut on some of the ladies tee boxes.

This Course played very well

We got to soldiers creek and it was raining, but the clubhouse staff pulled up the radar for us and said we had a window. They offered us coolers to use for drinks, and they were exceptionally polite. Once we were on the course, the fairways were very clean and the greens were very smooth. Very pleased. Will be back for sure

First time playing Soldier Creek

We had high hopes for Soldier Creek when we booked it. I mean it was $50 a person. The clubhouse was small and uninviting from the outside and minimal inside. No pro shop to speak of. The course was average at best. Fairways were in decent shape but there was lots of cut grass everywhere. I’m assuming they haven’t gotten a chance to mow due to recent weather. The greens were in good shape and there were a few interesting greens. Overall the course is average. This course would be $30 a person or less around home. I assume the price is because tourists will pay to play while vacationing but it is definitely not a $50 course.

a little expensive

A little expensive but greens were excellent and course is in good shape overall. The pace was fantastic and they actually had a beverage cart on the course. I would definitely recommend this course.

Solid layout could be better with some money but what course isn't?

I played Soldier Creek and TimberCreek on my recent trip this past week. I would recommend Soldier Creek over Timbercreek. The layout is better and the condition is better also. Timbercreek greens are rough. Soldier Creek isnt Augusta National either but i found the greens to be much better at Soldier Creek. Both layouts could be drastically improved with an infusion of capital to start with to change over their putting green turf to a better strain of bermuda grass or improve the conditions of the current turf.
