Can’t Beat a Beach Condo for a Golf Vacation

I’ve always known that a beach condo is the way to go when planning a golf vacation package—my golf buddies and I have gone this route for years—but the value of sharing a four-bedroom Orange Beach condo really proved worthy to us during this past golf getaway.

We booked a two-bedroom condo at Phoenix East, which three of us were going to share (the condo actually sleeps up to six people). We used to have a fourth member of our little group, but he hasn’t been able to attend the last few years due to work conflicts. This year appeared to present the same issue—until he called the day we left for the Gulf and informed us that he’d had a last-minute schedule change and he would be able to join us on our Gulf Shores golf vacation after all.

Of course we were all thrilled. It’s been several years since we’ve seen this particular friend, and we were able to spend the week once again with our original golf foursome. And with plenty of room in our Gulf-front condo, we were able to squeeze him in easily.

Plus, not only is four a nice round number for golf, it’s also an ideal number for activities like tennis, basketball, and racquetball—all of which are available at Phoenix East (and several other Brett/Robinson condominiums). Needless to say, a good time was had by all. Can’t wait to do it again next spring.
