GULF SHORES, Alabama — UC Funds announced the completion and grand opening of its ONE CLUB Gulf Shores golf course, billed as the “Best 45 Holes of Golf in the United States,” in Gulf Shores, Alabama. ONE CLUB will capstone a week of Grand Opening festivities with an 18-hole charity golf tournament benefiting Alabama’s Sea Turtle Preservation Program and Gulf State Park’s Backcountry Trail Preservation on June 23rd. UC Funds’ CEO, Dan Palmier, is matching donations up to $45,000.
ONE CLUB has partnered with contiguous Craft Farms Golf Resort to present the “Best 45 Holes of Golf in the United States” for both ONE CLUB residents and golf enthusiasts alike. Known as the “Best 45” among golfers, Craft Farms and ONE CLUB were inspired and designed by Arnold Palmer. As a result of this partnership, the new “Best 45 Holes of Golf” is expected to draw significantly more golfers from all over the United States as Gulf Shores and the Alabama coast become the new golf mecca.
UC Funds has financed extensive renovations to ONE CLUB, including its own Amen Corner, entertaining both casual and experienced golfers.
Full upgrades include hiring Troon/Honours Golf as the new operations company overseeing the development of new water and sand challenges, installation of new bunkers, water features, irrigation, and water systems; a larger golf cart fleet; full landscaping; and new seasonal maintenance. ONE CLUB also offers three bars and restaurants and luxury furnished stays just for golfers.
“We worked closely with UC Funds to completely upgrade their golf course,” said Bob Barrett, CEO of Honours Golf. “Drastic improvements to the course’s health, design, and accessibility have already increased traffic, attracting visiting and local golfers looking to play on the challenging terrain.”
Craft Farms, also affiliated with Troon/Honours Golf, offers two 18-hole courses, Cotton Creek and Cypress Bend. They are the only courses in the state designed by Arnold Palmer.
“These 45 holes of golf are beautiful, challenging and yet still very playable. We see their appeal to both experienced golfers and those seeking a relaxing round or a getaway weekend of golf,” says Daniel M. Palmier, founder, president, and CEO of UC Funds. “ONE CLUB is situated in the Emerald Coast of Gulf Shores, Alabama, a top-tier destination for golfers nestled between coastal dunes and the Gulf of Mexico. ONE CLUB is also proximate to the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail for those looking to experience all the golf that Alabama is known for.”
With the new golf renovations also has come significant renovations to the 15,000-square-foot Clubhouse and its collection of amenities at ONE CLUB. The Pro Shop is newly renovated with two seasoned golf professionals. For atmosphere, “Bar 45” is a brand new 3,500-square-foot restaurant and bar overlooking the 9th hole and “Amen Corner.” Upstairs in the clubhouse is a newly renovated 3,500-square-foot fitness center.
With year-round beautiful weather, the outdoor amenities of the Clubhouse are also resort-style and offer additional bars, music and entertainment for golfers and private events. Putting greens surround the clubhouse with an outdoor Surf Shack for outdoor bar and a music-filled relaxing atmosphere. Two new pools, cabanas, jacuzzi, and a sauna round out a golfer’s escape weekend.
And there’s more to come. A new state-of-the-art golf training facility is planned for Fall 2018 as well as a third pool that will be an adult-only lap pool.
ONE CLUB welcomes individuals looking for easy access to a fun-filled, active lifestyle at an affordable price. The community provides a private and dynamic setting for those hoping to relocate or purchase a second home for winter getaways. It aligns well with the explosive growth of activity and vacation living sought by golfers from all over the United States.
