Very nice course. Fairway shots are a little blind the first time around. Played as a single and the starter placed me where they was no hold ups. Only saw the beverage lady once but round was less than 3 hrs. Overall good experience.

There was a big rain about an hour before I got to the course, but it was in great shape. Staff was very friendly from proshop to marshals. I was able to play at a quick enjoyable pace. Greens were great, fairways were great, and rough was not

terribly penal but would make you guess if you would get a flyer or not. I highly recommend this course especially at $45 plus tax with a yardage book included (online special).

Just for your information, always book a tee time on their website. Usually the lowest price you will find. The course was great. The greens were fast and smooth and the rest of the course was in terrific shape. Nice driving range. There is water on just about every hole on the course so hit it straight. You should definitely either have a GPS or buy the yardage book because several of the lakes that are in play are not visible from the tee box. Overall it's a great course and I will play again if I have the chance.

Wow. This course is the best in Gulf Shores. We were on vacation and played a few courses in Gulf Shores and this was the best one by far. The staff was super friendly and the greens and fairways looked great. I will definitely be returning with my buddies next year.

everything about peninsula was top notch. With the large fast greens I would like to see the holes about 5 times bigger than normal so a 2 putt would be possible!

This wasn't my first round at Peninsula, but it'll probably be my last. Course conditions were fine -- not great, but good enough. In fairness, the greens were all in very good shape. At least a couple of fairways had some real turf issues in the landing areas, though.

But the biggest problem that I ran into was customer service. Even though I was a single with no group behind me, I wasn't allowed to walk, which is just stupid. The first nine holes were fine. But around Hole No. 10 or 11, a couple of maintenance guys drove up behind me and started doing work with power tools. They basically followed me around the course for the rest of the round, moving up to the area I'd just left every time I finished a shot. So I got to enjoy my last nine holes to the sweet, dulcet tunes of leaf blowers and trimmers. Not ideal.

Finally, over my last few holes, I got stuck behind an elderly couple, who were obviously high-handicappers (I've no quarrel with them there) and who drove to every shot. At the pace I saw them play, they must have taken at least five hours to finish. But the staff was worried about *me* slowing things down as a walker? Get real.

All in all, a very frustrating experience. And for $98 a pop, the experience simply was not worth it. Peninsula has always had a reputation on the Gulf Coast for being a little overpriced, and they did not earn that premium with me.
