Forget an afternoon of golf: Once you do a full golf getaway, you won't go back.

Where business meets relaxation: the ultimate corporate retreat experience in Alabama

Picture this: you wake up early to the sound of chirping morning cardinals and the smell of a fresh pot of coffee. You roll out of bed in your private cottage and look outside the front windows to see a putting green, the eighteenth hole of the FarmLinks course. You check your phone and see a group text from your buddies, who are meeting for breakfast in 30 minutes before your 9am tee time. Your personal golf cart is charged up and sitting out front, your clubs are in the back.

It’s going to be an awesome weekend of golf.

Forget getting away for a few hours to rush through nine holes and commute back into town. Getaway golf is the best way to escape the city with your buddies for an overnight or even full weekend of golf. And if you can make it out to the south, Pursell Farms has the best blend of pro-level golf, country beauty, and southern charm.

How to Plan Your Golf Getaway

Here’s a quick checklist to go through when planning your getaway:

Gather your party

Pursell Farms offers several lodging options, most of which depend on your party size. Start by getting a headcount within a plus or minus of one. That will help you narrow down your lodging options

Look First at the Weekdays

We know it’s hard when people are working their jobs. But if you can swing mid week at any golf getaway you’ll get better deals, tee times, tables, etc. If that’s not an option, most golf resorts will need to be booked a few months out.

Call and Ask About Packages

Before you book, look online or call the course to ask about packages and specials. These may be deals that don’t show up on third party websites like Kyak or Hotels.com.

Ready to See What's Out There?

If you’re ready to make memories that will stay with you forever (the good kind!) explore our stay and play packages or even give us a call if there’s more ways we can accommodate you.

See you on the farm . . .
