Wonderful course with great views

Peninsula is a great golf course. With excellent conditions and some beautiful views on the back nine, this course is highly recommended if you are in the Fish Creek area. While tee times were scarce, the pace for us was right around 4 hours for a foursome. Maybe we got lucky but most people playing here seemed to play relatively fast.

Too slow.

Pace of play was OK until the turn and then there were two big groups that were slotted in front of me at the 10th tee. They were obviously in no way going to move at a normal pace. After waiting 20 minutes for them to get it going, I bailed out and went home. Expensive 9 holes for me for poor course management. Disappointed.

Peak Door County Golf

My favorite course in the state. Make sure to play it AT LEAST once a year, and in the fall if possible. The back nine is the best string of nine holes in Wisconsin.

One hole closed; another temporary green

It is difficult to recommend a course where one hole couldn’t be played at all and another had a temporary green. This late in the season, even the fairways are hard pack. It would have been nice if they would have told me the situation before I paid full price.

Limited access

I like the course but am disappointed that unless you agree to play 18 holes you cannot play the back nine. Twice I was not allowed to play back nine when the course was not busy.

Best in Door County

There are several nice public courses in DoorCo, but you have to play Peninsula. Excellent course with many improvements over the years. Peninsula has the best scenic views and is both challenging and fun for all.
I have played here for almost 60 years and I keep coming back because it is well worth it. Some days, during crowded times in DoorCo, it can be slow playing but, just enjoy the views and your time in the park. They do a pretty good job spacing groups and the folks working there are always friendly and helpful.
The best golf course in Door County.

Windy Golf Day!

We played 9 holes on Tuesday 9/27. Cloudy, rainy and windy but we still had a great time. The clubhouse was clean and staff was very friendly.
Highly recommend when visting Door County!
