If you haven't tried golf in Alabama yet, consider it. Start at the Renaissance Ross Bridge just south of Birmingham and you can play your way to the gulf on Robert Trent Jones designed courses all within a couple of hours drive of each other. The course at Ross Bridge is in excellent shape and will hold a challenge for any level golfer.
I hold corporate meeting events at Ross Bridge as well, and the hotel is a pleasure to work with and stay at. It has a classic high end country club/ european hunting lodge feel to it. Awesome views.
