What’s more, the world-renowned beaches of the Gulf Coast are only forty minutes away, by boat or by land.

The Colony residences are a place where the tradition of the Grand Hotel amenities reach new heights. In addition to all of the resort’s amenities, additional private features surround residents. From golf and resort amenities to boating and fishing; The Colony invites exploration by foot, pedal or paddle.

The Lakewood Club.

Members can enjoy ten professional tennis courts, two challenging Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail courses, a 20,000 square foot European-style spa, and diverse dining choices. Guests can also explore the scenic marina with sailboats, yachts, and fishing boats, relax on the beach, and enjoy the exceptional pool complex.

The Golf Club.

The Colony at the Grand is surrounded by a 36-hole championship Golf Club designed with natural sand areas, Scottish bulkhead walls and fairways that weave around spring-fed lakes and 200-year-old live oak trees.

The Dogwood Course is a newly renovated, 7,620 yard, 18-hole, 72-par course that winds through dogwoods, magnolias and towering oaks.

The 72-par Azalea Course ranges from 5,200 to 7,500 yards and includes the signature 14th hole with a 10,000 square-foot island green surrounded by a four-acre lake.

Each Colony at the Grand residence includes opportunities for membership in the Golf Club, where you’re even more likely to make new friends than you are to make par.

The Golf Club is a resort member of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Magnolia Grove, in nearby Mobile offers an additional 54 holes of championship Robert Trent Jones golf.

Sweetwater Lake.

We are innately drawn to the water. It’s a truly magical elixir with transformative powers. It’s reflections can be other worldly and seemingly wash away the stresses of life with the slightest ripple. Sweetwater Lake is all this and more.

It is the centerpiece of the Colony at the Grand, connecting the community with surrounding walking trails; anchoring the community with a sunset pier and stunning white sand beach adjacent to the Lakewood Club and pool.

Swim, paddle, kayak – this pristine body of water provides an abundance of recreation. Drop your line and fish away the afternoon. Just keep your eye on the bobber, Sweetwater Lake It is fully stocked. It’s a nature sanctuary where wild birds gather and butterflies dance. Like Narcissuses himself, you will be unable to take your eyes from this magnificent amenity.
