Perdido Bay Golf - Joint Chapter Event 

When:
  September 6-8
What:   Scramble Event with Annette Thompson's soon to be LPGA Amateurs Chapter.  (Annette Thompson is a former Birmingham chapter Member). Upper Gulf Coast is not an official chapter yet, but hopefully will be very soon.  There are 
3 Tee times available on Friday, Sept 6, with the scramble event on Saturday,  Sept 7, with tee times beginning at 10:30.  Optional tee times are available for Sunday, Sept 8.  Email Bobbie Markham, if you are interested in playing Sunday as well.
Cost:  The cost for Golf is $35
Accommodations:  The Chapter will NOT be making arrangements for accommodations, so you will need to make your own.  Hopefully, the following ideas will give you some great options:  
Cottages are available at the Golf Resort. Click here to view website.  The cottages have rates for single rooms and 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom suites that include a washer/dryer and a grill. The rates run from $149 for a 1 BR, up to $399 for a 4 BR suite.  Check the website for more information.

If you prefer to stay in a beachfront hotel, we recommend Orange Beach, AL.  By car it is only 25 minutes away from the Perdido Bay Golf Club.  Pensacola Beach, on the other hand, is about  a 45 minute drive.  Pensacola has great options too and is about 30 minutes from Perdido.
