The course is one of the best in the Gulf Shores area. It drains exceptionally well, so after rain, it is a top choice.

Always fun to play!

Great course with great layout. Greens in great shape, super quick. Don’t miss an opportunity to stop at the clubhouse and eat a bowl of corn and crab chowder! Simply divine.

Never pass the chance to play here

Beautiful course and super friendly staff. We play here every chance we get. One group slowed us down a bit today, but it takes nothing away from this gem.

Beyond Pleased

To start off, the staff is impeccable. I accidentally booked a tee time for the day after we were there. The lady was so helpful in getting it changed and got us on our way. The bar ladies are phenomenal, some can be snooty but not here!! When we return to this area, I’ll definitely be back to play the course again.

Best course in the area

I was in town for the week and played Peninsula, Craft Farms, and Perdido Bay Resort. Peninsula was by far the best course and in the best condition. The staff was very friendly, pace of play was great, food was great at the clubhouse, and they have bushwhackers on draft! When I come back in the area, this is the only course I will be playing.

Dead greens

The course having just gone through recent renovations to all the greens looked amazing and played great. But to my surprise as a local i showed up today and found the greens were purposely sprayed to kill the grass to do new greens. Adding insult, as a local i paid full price in the morning to get a quick round in before the afternoon. I was never asked or warned of the conditions of the greens nor if i even wanted to play such conditions. I had to find the greens were dead on lakeside and hard as a rock as my ball bounced off into the rough. The greens were rolling like glass, you could not stop a ball on your approach shot. Had i been warned i would not have played the course in the shape it was in. Even local members were fuming on the greens. This caused pace of play to slow to a crawl as everyone was having trouble putting and chipping. As a local, my opinion is nothing to anyone that matters but i wont be back for a long time over this one.

Fair course

This golf course s very challenging but not so bad where you loose a ball on every hole. The fairways are generous off the tee and fairways are fast. The greens are firm and fast. Great overall course.

Disappointed

Course overall was decent however Lakes Course had some goofy holes, course maps/layout would have helped a lot. Flags were difficult to pick up for yardages due to their color (black or maroon).

Just expected better!
