Welcome to Alabama Golf Tours

Travel Information for Tour Operators and Golf Associations

Sweet Home Alabama is more than just a song or a movie, although they both certainly evoke the spirit of the beautiful state. It’s also a mantra for the hard-working, friendly folks that travelers encounter along the way. From the bagboys and beverage cart girls on the world-class golf courses to the servers and chefs in the award-winning restaurants, visitors are made to feel right at home, ensuring that time spent in Alabama is as sweet as the tea.


Sweet Home Alabama is a golfing destination unlike any other, as home to the original golf trail, award-winning golf resorts, and 32 miles of sugar-white beaches. Both the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, with its 26 courses at 11 sites and eight hotels/resorts, and Coastal Alabama Golf, the booking entity for the nine premier golf courses in the Gulf Shores-Orange Beach area, are eager to put together customized group itineraries for tour operators and golf associations. In the meantime, check out some creative ways to stay and play in Alabama below.
