Gulf shores current conditions
Just wondering if anyone has played down there recently. Heading over for a week. Really interested in GSGC. Played Kiva last time and it was fantastic pre hurricane. Thanks

I went down there like a week or 2 after the hurricane hit. Only played GlenLakes and we had to play the same 9 twice. The grounds crew worked hard to get those 9 holes ready and they were in good shape.

Had a buddy who played Kiva a week or so ago and said the course was in great shape, but something about a bridge taking some damage and they had groups starting on 17 (I think) and finishing on 16. Got to play all the holes, so not a big deal. He said Rock Creek was still pretty wet and the greens were slow. I’m sure it’s dried up some more since then

Spot on about kiva

The bridge at 17 is out - so you start there and loop around - not too bad.

With all the construction and repair work, make sure you condo or house does not have construction / repair crew hammering and working all day right next to you.

Also - careful walking on the beach

re: Gulf shores current conditions
A fantastic offer, but I will be getting my arse kicked by my kids. It's bad enough with my son giving me sheet for driving 250 and my daughter mocking my mid and long iron play. I'm not bringing in a spectator to witness that.

The last round we played was at the MSU course the weekend my Ags were in Starkvegas. She was +3 and he was at 6. She played from ~6500 with us. I recorded 89, but didn't legit break 90. Brutal.

I paid for all their lessons and equipment so they can kick my rear and talk sheet about my game...not that I'm bitter or insecure about it.

I will say I miss watching them play competitively. Good times.

Played GSGC and Glenlakes this week. Really liked both courses and thought they were in great shape.

Pretty cool watching the Blue Angels practice while at GSGC

Managed to walk 9 on Friday afternoon at Kiva. Tee boxes, fairways and greens all in great shape. Looks like they brought in a mulcher and just ground all the downed limbs and blew the chips under the remaining trees. So it looked a little rough around the edges, but was in great condition.

Was not prepared for the sand fleas that ate me alive during that walk.

Indeed on lots of construction.

Beech was clear of any debris where we were near Ft Morgan.

81 with 2 birdies and a double on 18 at GSGC. Very nice place with some brutal par 4s that played into a stiff breeze. 1st 2 par 3s on the front are beautiful. Staff were very nice and would definitely play again. Good value.

Had to cancel at Lost Key because of too much Bourbon Friday night
