We all question the validity of “reviews” claiming top whatever category in such and such magazine or weoter’s group. The condition of this course lived up to all the hype. The layout is varied form straightforward to challenging but in all instances fair. If we are ever even close to Gulf Shores I likely will not consider playing a different course.
Really enjoyed my round at Peninsula. The course was on excellent condition with a unique layout where each of the holes are memorable and different. The pace of play the day we played was rather slw and I did not se any rangers on the course to move things along our round was close to 5 hrs which is too long. The staff was very friendly and the facilwere first rate. Looking forward to playing again and experiencing the Marsh nine on my next trip to Gulf Shores.
Beautiful course and well maintained
Pace of play was NOT what I expected. Took
4 1/2 - 4:45 hours! Play came to a halt on entire 2nd nine with no Marshall in sight! 3 groups on every hole (overbooked??)
We just can’t get enough of Peninsula. It is absolutely one of the best courses in Gulf Shores. A must play!
Not a Good Day
The threesome I was to play with played with a members group so the starter set me up with an existing foursome. Shame on me for agreeing to this. First of all this was a family outing and I was not part of the family. On top of that I was not having my best day and the family leader, who had played this course once before, kept telling everyone which club to use on all shots. After 7 1/2 miserable holes I had enough and left. To be honest the ranger who had encouraged our group to speed it up saw me leave, followed me into the parking lot to find out what the problem was. He was very apologetic and even offered to try to get me in another group for my back nine. At that point I was beat up and just wanted to get out of there. At all times the employees from the pro shop to the cart guys were professional and I have nothing but good things to say about all of them. I just chalked it up to $11/hole but I won't be returning.
We have been playing Peninsula every February since it opened. Everyone there makes you feel welcome, from the cart guys to the bartenders.
Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for the best experience in golf at Gulf Shores
This is a pretty and challenging course, but very playable. Unfortunately it started to rain so we stopped after 9 holes. The staff was very accommodating and refunded our money. Wish we could have golfed all 18, great course, well maintained. Pace was a little slow, there was a 5-some ahead of us, and a 2-some. No ranger.
This course is friggin amazing!! The views are beautiful and plentiful!!! The staff are all awesome, the course is in immaculate condition, my playing partners were super cool and I couldn’t ask for a better golfing experience. Just wonderful!! If you have a chance to play this course do it!! You won’t be sorry!
Best golf Course at Gulf ShoresAL
Like the apple barrel on tee fairsways great condition greens fast and challenging all Persons involved with golf course make you feel right at home
Course was in excellent shape and the entire staff was great in all aspects. We really enjoyed the day.
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!
Thank you for a great round of golf. Your staff was very courteous, and accomodaying. The ladies restrooms on the course were emaculant. Look forward to playing again soon.
This is such a beautiful course. Always in great shape and a fantastic staff.
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.
