Nice Track

This is one I will come back to. Very enjoyable to play. Interesting layout and excellent greens. Not super fast but very good for the time of year and great compared to the course we played the day before. (Lost Key)

We played Marsh and Cypress so I can't speak for the Lakes 9 but I'm sure it would be similar.

Staff was friendly. All in all a very good day.

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.

Really good course

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).

Very Nice

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.

Great Course

Absolutely loved the course. It was in great condition and beautiful. The only thing that could be improved it having the range and practice tees set up in time to use for an early tee time.

Great day on the course

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.

Great facility

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!
