CYPRESS BEND AT CRAFT FARMS
3840 Cotton Creek Circle
Gulf Shores, Alabama
Cypress Bend at Craft Farms Golf Resort boasts a 4-1/2 star rating by Golf Digest. This architectural masterpiece, features staggered tee boxes, sprawling bunkers, top quality putting surfaces and year–round lush conditions. A perfect complement to its big sister, Cotton Creek, this course has a coastal feel as it traverses a unique system of cord-grass accented lakes which come into play on nearly every hole. Cypress Bend offers wide fairways, vast landing areas and large undulating greens, giving golfers confidence as they prepare to tackle this Palmer creation.
The modern layout and links-style course is a pleasure to play. The 4th Hole is the trickiest on the course. You must have a well-placed tee shot and may not want to use your driver. The 2nd shot over water must be placed just right to score well on this hole.
Golf Digest gave Cypress Bend 4-1/2 stars and named it one of the 2008-09 Best Places to Play. While you are in the southern Gulf Coast region, enjoying the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, take some time to plan a golf outing at Cypress Bend.
