Gulf Shores Golf Courses Reopen Today After Rain Impact From Tropical Storm Lee
Gulf Shores' beaches and golf courses greatly anticipate a sunny, cool and clear 10-day forecast, following Tropical Storm Lee's rain impact to the Gulf Coast this past Labor Day weekend.
The southern Alabama destination woke to sunshine today, and its nine golf courses (http://www.golfgulfshores.com) have reopened today for play. With quick-draining sandy soil, courses are anticipated to enact a 90-degree or cart-path-only rule until mid-week. Clear days with unseasonably mild 80-degree weather dominate the week's forecast.
"Several golf courses were happy to refill their retention ponds following a spring rainfall deficit," said Duncan Millar, executive director of the Gulf Shores Golf Association. "As we enter into favorable fall weather and an attractive rate season, we look forward to a busy fall."
Stay-and-play rates start at $73 per person per night this fall for golf and accommodations in a Gulf-front condominium. Sample rates and a customized package builder can be found at www.golfgulfshores.com.
