Got Rained Out, But Good

Rained out by third hole, but course issued a raincheck. That’s fine.

Nature Comes to Play

The Peninsula Golf Course in Ephraim is an excellent place to play - excellent fairways and greens, an intriguing layout carved through the north woods of Peninsula State Park in Door County. I have played this course several times in the past 10 or 15 years - and its beauty always takes my breath away.

Good Course if not Crowded

It’s a good course but can get slow if there is a group in front of you who have no concept of playing at an acceptable pace.

Great Traditional Course

Course is in great shape
I it has some unique hole designs , but it is a basic traditional course. There has been many good improvements over the past few years which has upgraded it immensely.
Fun to play

Course was fine. No complaints. Starter/cashier not particularly friendly. Seemed annoyed at my questions. The following day I used the practice range. As I attempted to pay, he turned his back, walked away and continued to sort balls into baskets. Not particularly customer friendly. Will consider alternative courses in future.

My favorite course

Of the hundreds of courses that I have played from Florida, to Arizona, to my home state of Missouri, this is my favorite course. We plan vacations around coming to play the course, and it is my favorite in Door County, as well everywhere else.

Great improvement

I’ve played the course for many years and this was the best ever, The course has been greatly improved both greens and fairways .
Even with the Covid virus affecting amenities, it was still a great day.
The “6 hole short course” is such a great practice bonus.

Excellent Fall Color In Northern Wisconsin

Had a great time playing at Peninsula. Some tight holes, but overall a fun, hilly, scenic and colorful fall round in Door County!

Fun Course for Door County

This was my 2nd time playing this course. It's 1 of the few that can be found in Door County WI. It is a very well maintained course and other than the quirky hole #8 pretty straightforward. Some of the most amazing views can be found scattered throughout the course as well. Front nine plays much like a muni course, shorter, straight or slightly dog legged holes. The back 9 is a whole other game. I don't know the history of this course yet the back seems to have been carved out of the side of the mountain as an after thought at times. Still fund to play yet a few of the holes can become a train wreck from 1 bad tee shot.

Nice Course

I made the reservation with Golf Now and they charged me too much. The course had a twilight and was half the price. Because a storm came in we had to quit after 11 holes. Bummer times two.

Beware ladies

I was really looking forward to playing this course, but unfortunately one rude and condescending employee ruined the experience. I was playing with my husband and two other gentlemen. As I was standing on the fourth tee box, a ranger pulled up and asked the guys ‘’Does she know that she can hit from the reds?’ My husband replied we are all hitting from the whites. We were then told that they can track the carts, and we were running 4-5 minutes behind. Actually after the third hole one of the guys had to use the bathroom which took a few minutes, but apparently they can’t track that. I certainly hope this course’s staff rethinks how they address players and their pace. It is so unprofessional and unacceptable to target the female in the group as the source of the problem. For the record, our group finished in under four hours.
