Guests and Golfers at Perdido Bay Golf Club are Raving About Cottages on the Green

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

Next time you're in Pensacola, why not stay at Cottages on the Green at the Perdido Bay Golf Club? This public golf club offers spacious private cottages for rent for large groups or a couple looking for a novel retreat. You don't have to be a golfer to stay here, but the onsite 18-hole course, driving range and putting green facilities sure are a perk.

Featuring guest, one- or two-bedroom, or cottage suites for the guest who prefers a little luxury for a fair price. A rep from Cottages on the Green informs us, "They are very affordable with prices ranging from $89 to $99 a night per guest room in our busiest season." There is also a pool (open in season), nature walk with playground for the kids and restaurant onsite for a relaxing meal or take out for a picnic on the nearby white-sand beaches of Perdido Key.

Legends Bar & Grille is named in reference to the many celebrities that once stayed in the cottages: Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Bob Hope, President Ford, Jimmy Buffet and Willie Mayes.

Live music, events and good eats make this the go-to place for golfers and guests. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu is American grill food and Southern specialties. From appetizers such as the Blackened Chicken Bites with chipotle dipping sauce to various salads, sandwiches/wraps and entrees, there is something for most diners. Wrap your hands around a shrimp or catfish po boy or a Bob Hope sandwich filled with grilled ham, cheddar and Swiss cheese on Texas toast with a cup of soup.

The cottage has everything. "There are four bedrooms, four and a half baths in a cottage with two queen beds in each room," they describe. "Everyone has their own room and full bathroom, and then everyone shares the central area which consists of a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining area. If you don't need the full cottage, you can "rent one, two, three or four bedrooms and then you have the option to add the suite to your room."

Whether you are a guest or a golfer or both, Perdido Bay Golf Club and Cottages on the Green welcome you. "Perdido is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle," Reps say, "but everything you will need is right around the corner."
