Gulf Shores, Alabama Courses Reopen after Tropical Storm Lee

By: Steve Habel

Gulf Shores' beaches and golf courses anticipate a sunny, cool and clear 10-day forecast following Tropical Storm Lee's impact to Alabama's Gulf Coast this past Labor Day weekend.

The southern Alabama destination awoke to sunshine today, and its nine golf courses have reopened 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 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. For more information, visit or call 888/815-1902.
