Detailed description of Isle Dauphine Golf Club

Isle Dauphine Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Dauphin Island, Alabama.

Isle Dauphine Golf Club first opened for play in 1958. The course was designed by Arch Winter.

The Isle Dauphine Club Golf Course plays to a par-72 and maximum distance of 6,620 yards. The course rating is 70.8 with a slope rating of 123. A signature feature is the 1950's designed ultra modern "Jetsons" circular designed clubhouse.

The course closed for play on August 25, 2012. the Dauphin Island Property Owners Association Board of Directors reached the decision to temporarily close the Isle Dauphine facilities until further notice. The decision was necessitated by the critical financial condition of the Association. The DIPOA wants to propose a long-term lease to a group that specializes in golf club management, but the association cannot make such an offer until its own constitution is amended to allow more than its' currently mandated prohibition against any lease greater than three years. The DIPOA did not believe a short-term lease would keep the club open.

The proposal to amend the association's constitution will be mailed out to the 2,700 DIPOA and proposals would be considered if the amendment is approved.

Volunteers had kept the club open from the end of 2011 to the end of operations in August 2012. In the 12 years before that, the club lost more than $1.6 million.

The course was closed between 2011 and 2015.

The course reopened in 2016 and is now back in operation and open for play.

This is the only golf course on the island. In my opinion it has to be played walking. Lot of fun. It is golf as it was played by Old Tom Morris. There is no difference in the condition of the green and the fairway. They are both "ROUGH'',as they are described by the "owner". It takes a map to tell you where you are and where the next hole is located. The greens are an adventure. On most of them the stemp meter reading would be a 2 or a 3. Any peice of grass can change the direction of the ball. The best way to approach them is by hitting a "bump and run". Short chip shots were best played with a 7 iorn. A great course to learn how to play in the wind. Also how to learn to hit out of sand. It is every where. When you do make a par, it is like a birdie on any other course. This is"Crazy Golf' but played on a real golf course. I LOVED IT. Lots of laughs.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, More than a field, but less than a golf course, Average course for the area
