Course keeps improving

The new owners continue to improve the course, even adding a bunker on hole #1. Fairways and greens are in good shape. Worth playing if you are in the area.

Fun course, great for beginners

Course is continuing to improve. New owners putting money into fixing drainage problems, adding bunkers and improving overall condition of course. Course in good shape for this time of year. The Cove restaurant is a great place for lunch and a beer.

Friendly staff but boring + poorly conditioned course

Incredibly courteous staff. The pace of play was horrendous, slowest course I’ve ever played. Lots of older locals ball hunting so that was the main reason why. Other than that it’s nothing special but a somewhat decent value for being at the beach even though you don’t get a beach view from any holes.

Course continuing to improve

Play here at least once a month. New owners continuing to improve the course. Some of the fairways still a bit dry and firm but improving. Greens are in great shape. They have added more ball washers and trash cans. Make sure you stop by the restaurant for lunch and a beer. The food is great.

Nice little course

Course is in good shape. A few fairways were a bit dry, but greens were great. Only a few hazards, but small greens that are very firm. Play your approach shots short of the green unless you can spin the ball.

Nice course for the price

I play here monthly and always enjoy the course. The greens are in great shape, but some of the fairways are a bit dry with lots of run out. Can have a slow round because lots of new golfers playing, but most let you play through.

Good improvements to the course

First time playing, since the new owners. The course is the best I've seen it. The fairways were softer, making them easier to play off of. The greens were in great shape and the ball rolled well. Only 1 green with a couple of bare spots. The course is in good shape and the staff is always courteous and helpful. Make sure you stop by the restuarant for a beer and lunch, the food is great.

Nice course for the money.

Nice little course, only plays 2300 yards from the furthest tees. Fairways were firm and dry in places. The greens were good, except for some damage on #6. Great restaurant with excellent food and cold beer.

Thank you for the review! We really appreciate getting feedback, as it will help us prioritize the work we do on the course.

Your feedback is spot on. We are doing work over the winter to improve the condition of the fairways (irrigation, aeration, and top dressing for smoothing).

We are redesigning #6 to improve the tee (adding a back tee, too) and the green.

In the Spring, we'll aerate every green and repair any damage.

Again, thanks for the feedback. Come back and check out the improvements and let us know if we are hitting the mark.

Probably wouldn't go on a holiday weekend.

Went out for a quick 18 on Labor Day weekend. We had played it once before, on off season. The course really is a rough little course, but it's fun. The mosquitos will try to eat you alive, so make sure you spray yourself down before going out. Played the 1st 9, it was slow, there was a back up so we joined the 2 in front of us. Make it through OK, got to the turn, and there was a small back up. We waited, got to the tee box, and the people in front of us lost ball, and took approx. 15 mins to find them. They were walkers and apparently didn't know when there is a line up behind you, drop a ball. About 15 mins went by, by then there were a group of about 12 guys behind us. We noticed that our cart was dying, decide to just skip the last 9 because the 3 in front of us were obviously going to be here all day. Being in Long beach, perhaps post golf etiquette someplace? I understand that at resort towns on heavy weekends this happens, but it's not like there is a lot of courses to choose from. Other than that, we had fun our first time. Not a stellar course but does the trick.

Thanks so much for your feedback. We recently changed ownership and we'll be investing in course conditions over the winter. We're working on drainage (to help with the mosquito problem), irrigation to improve the fairway conditions on #1 and #2.

We're also cleaning up the undergrowth on the sides of the fairways and doing more to maintain the creeks so that it's easier for golfer to find their wayward golf balls.

Lastly, we are investing in improved tee sheet management to ensure that we can reduce the chance of a backup on the first tee.

Come back some time soon and let us know if you like the changes we are making.

Fun round of golf and a great lunch @ Peninsula Golf Course

Spent Labor Day weekend in Long Beach, WA. Found this course on our way through town. It's located 1 mile north of downtown Long Beach on the east side. Fun 9 hole, par 33 course. The layout is varied, with some holes exposed to the wind while other holes wind through the tall stands of evergreen trees.

The greens are in great shape and hold shots well.

The pace of play was relaxed, the clubhouse staff and pro were happy, friendly, and engaging. I'm impressed. I will definitely play again.

Slow

Had a group of elderly ladies holding up play. Had several groups all backed up on the front nine. Grateful that they weren't making the turn. Second nine moved at a normal speed. Took four hours to play what should have been an easy three hour round. No par fives. Short course which should never take four hours to play.

Winter Golf

Played the day after many days of hard rain and was really soggy on the first time around. The second time around was a lot dryer. The greens were excellent, receptive and true rolling. No par 5s but the par 3s are no slouches. The staff couldn't be any friendlier or helpful. I'll come back again just for them.

Nice 9 hole course with several tee positions.

Nice course with a great restaurant. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Fairways are firm and greens are in good shape. Great little course if you are in the area. Can be slow, when beginners are out there, but most will let you play through.
