The Grand Life Beckons at “The Queen of Southern Resorts”

On the Gulf Coast of Alabama, in the picturesque beach hamlet of Point Clear, surrounded by beautiful Mobile Bay, lies a hidden jewel, rich with tradition, alive with activity and overflowing with generous hospitality. This is the famous Grand Hotel Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. Set on 550 acres of natural beauty, the Grand returns; its stunning 2018 transformation complete, debuting as a modern sanctuary of golf, tennis, beach, pools and spa – an enchanted destination filled with gracious Southern charm.
Here, as it has for over 170 years, the Grand Life beckons: with a cordial welcome and warmth flowing through the Resort in cheerful abundance; with pride in our Historic Hotels of America designation, and part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail; with the fresh Gulf air around and the village of beautiful Fairhope next door. This is the Grand Hotel. Fresh and fascinatingly new. Where the Grand Life abounds – waiting to be shared with everyone.

36 holes of rich history and natural beauty await! Lakewood Club at the Grand Hotel is a sparkling resort member of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Rolling fairways, tight greens, spring-fed lakes, meandering streams, and stands of mature trees make the 36 holes of Lakewood both beautiful and challenging.Experience these award winning courses with the Golf Getaway Package.

More than a driving range, “The Experience” is a 15-acre, state-of-the art practice facility that combines an exciting learning environment with fun challenges to make every player better. With ways to hit every club in the bag, hunker down on a flop shot, or work on perfecting a bump and run, “The Experience” provides an expansive environment that takes learning golf to new places, helping develop new players and keep existing players in the game. Rounding out the experience: fire pits and porch chairs to kick back in, a flatscreen with the favorite game on, and a full bar to keep spirits high. Practice take shapes at The Experience like nowhere else, creating a hub for the local golfer and a destination for golfers across the US and around the world.
