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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Enjoyed the course. Pace of play slow but this time of year with elderly foursomes its to be expected. Pro shop staff not helpful and has an attitude. Other courses in the area are much more appreciative of your business.

Favorite course I've played in the gulf area. I played it my last day on vacation. Had I known how nice it was, I would've played it every time I had the opportunity to play(played 4 days). They have 27 holes. I only got to play 18, but wished I would've gotten to play the other 9. Great course, great staff. Excellent experience. Awesome layout
