So my brother-in-law is planning his own golf vacation in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, and he’s asked for my expertise on the matter. Actually, it sounds like the group is in pretty good shape for booking their golf package—they’re all in agreement on where they want to stay and which golf courses they want to play, but a couple members of their group are pretty new to golf and are wondering what other activities they’ll get to do.
And I have an excellent answer: follow the “mancation” plan. This is one of the vacation itineraries on Brett/Robinson’s OrangeBeachToday.com, and it really does present some good ideas for a group of golf buddies. They could alternate the days’ activities—golf one day, fishing/kayaking/dolphin-cruising the next, then golf again, etc. Or they could even play golf in the morning and spend the afternoon engaging in a little sports action or checking out some Gulf Shores hot spots. Really, it’s a very adaptable vacation plan.
This is why I love an Orange Beach golf getaway—lots of golf, but it doesn’t have to be all about the golf. It’s easy to achieve an ideal balance of golf and other beach vacation activities. And that is, after all, the whole idea of a golf getaway—achieving balance in one’s life.
I think my brother-in-law’s group will be just fine on this trip.
