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.

3 star at best

We chose this course for the price vs star rating. 4 stars is in no way applicable here. Not a terrible course, agree with all the statements about rain abs water management. 3 star at best, honestly not worth the money. Pay the extra and go to a nicer course.

Wet golf

Due to the rain almost constantly and hurricane season this course has had plenty of obstacles to overcome. The course is a great design and enjoyable to play when it’s not too wet.

Terrible

Course is in terrible shape for the price. I understand the rain but with that being said they shouldn’t be charging full price. Maybe if it was drier course would be better to play. Won’t ever find out

Great layout

Course had a great layout. Just doesn’t drain very well. Wet in places so greens and fairways hadn’t been mowed. If conditions are dry and course is cut I’d recommend!

Poor condition and maintenance.

Range tee grounds not mowed. Range balls in poor condition. Greens were full on crab grass. Buffalo grass abundant in the poorly mowed fairways. Hole 11 was a disaster with water damage. Over rated and too expensive for the value.

Beautiful and fun to play!

This is a beautiful, fun to play course! It is susceptible to flooding though, so call ahead before you book to make sure the course is open. The pro shop does not have much to offer, so stop somewhere else for the essentials prior to heading over.

Timing is everything

Great course that I have played before, except don’t play after rain in the past two days. The course does not drain well. At least 9 of 18 fairways were swamps. Bunkers were holding water.
