Golfers Dream

I can.not say enough good things about this establishment!!! Staff was incredibly professional, organized, friendly and accommodating! Even with a 3 hr rain delay, they went above and beyond to be of service! The course was beautifully maintained and presented enough challenges to entertain a seasoned golfer but not so much as to intimidate the beginner! Best bloody mary I’ve ever had and the food was great! If you are anywhere near Gulf Shores...make the trip. You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! 5 Stars across the board!

Best course in Gulf Shores

Peninsula was the best course I played in the Gulf Shores area during our stay. I think it was also the highest price of the ones I played. By far the best condition course from tee to green. Fairways in particular were much better than other courses. Greens fast and rolled true. Overall great place to play. Played 2 of the three tracks. The Lakes was closed. Only complaint from me was the gap between the #2 and #3 tees was too big or a bit off for my liking. The #3 tees is what I ended up playing and was too short. Not enough variety in the holes. All the par 3 were about the same length. But overall probably one of the nicest courses I've played. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Practice and warm up areas were very good. I am a 9 handicap and found the course a nice challenge.

Worth a visit

I have played this course previously and once again did not disappoint. Course is exceptionally well maintained. Manageable course but if you spray off the tee bring a few extra balls. Very enthusiastic employees. Do not hesitate to play here.

Wonderful Place to Play

I love all 3 nines on this course. Every time we play here the conditions are wonderful. Staff is great but the marshall told us to hurry up twice when there were no groups behind us. We played in 4 hours and were not a problem. We think he got confused because we came from the Marsh and onto Lakes and were "behind" even though the group in front of us just started their round.

Tough pin placements and fast greens

This is a beautiful layout and was in excellent condition. It was cool and windy when we started, and we had much difficulty managing the greens, which were lightning fast. The course was very crowded, and it took 5 hours to finish. But it was a great day.

Nice fairways and greens, but

Started on the Marsh - Lakes 18 and finished with a late 9 on Cypress. Generally good condition if you stayed out of the bunkers, which were loaded with footprints greenside - enough to indicate they were behind on maintenance. Many holes required a lot of accuracy off the tee.
