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.

Staff very friendly . Not much in club house /pro shop.
Liked course layout . Fairways were ok. Tee boxes and greens lacking in grass and very bumpy. Course is scenic with tree lined fairways. A fun place to play.
Liked the rolling fairways . Green fees were to high for course conditions . I will play here again .

Enjoyable round.

We were a 3 threesome and had a lot of fun playing this course. Layout was interesting with a nice variety of well treed fairways, giving you the feeling that you had the course to yourself. Fairways were generous, par 3's were fun and fair. Condition overall were very good with greens rolling fast and fair. Family owned course where they care about your experience. We spoke with the owners after our round, nice hard working people.

Pleasantly Surprised

After reading some of the reviews we were not expecting much and all four for us were pleasantly surprised. We would play it again when we are in the area.

Intriguing country course

This course has a thinking person's routing. You should not just pull the driver on every hole. Add a little wind and it is easy to overthink things. Listen to the locals and you will stay out of trouble. There are areas to recover poor shots and a short shot (including topped ones) is nearly always playable.

You will not be bored with the routing as there is a lot of diversity. Water comes into play on some holes, but not a majority.

The greens have some damaged areas and this is the only reason for the lower rating. I think this is due to the dry season.

If you are not a scratch golfer, give the course a try to find your swing. You will find a happy place.

Nice course but greens in bad shape.

We really like this course. Played a few times on vacation in May. The summer has taken its toll on the greens and a few of the fairways. It’s a beautiful course and very peaceful. Pace of play is great. Wish the greens had been in better shape. Lots of bare spots. Still a nice place to play.

This course is in bad shape

The fairways were in terrible condition. There were large areas completely missing grass on almost every hole. Majority of the holes had areas of deep mud. Hole 11 had a giant puddle in the fairway which resembled a lake. The course was almost unplayable. It would be understandable if it had recently rained, but we played before the rain came. Once it started raining there was no shelter on the course. We had to head for the parking lot. The greens were in great shape, though.
