Best course in the state

We come to peninsula every year with a group of 12 guys and will continue to come every year. All the employees at peninsula always do a wonderful job taking care of us. The course is always in great shape. They have an amazing restaurant with great food and drinks. If you’re looking for a place to have a golf trip this is it.

Greens are not good

Played today and the course was in good shape but the greens are not good and the price to play was not worth it. You can drive 5 miles to the west and play a really really good golf course for less money. Don’t pay $100 to play this course.

Best In The Area

Played with my 3 sons and we played in under 4 hours on a fairly busy day. Course was in phenomenal shape and the green were rolling quick and true. The greens on the Marsh 9 were some of the best greens I've played on. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Out of the courses in the area that we played that week this one was the best all around. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Gulf Shores area.

Beautiful course

Amazing course with an even more amazing staff. Thank you to the “sarcastic wonder” (Michael) for the very gracious welcoming and great insight around the area. Definitely recommend to all other golfers in the area. Will definitely be back to the course!

4 Pleased Golf Junkies

First time playing down in Gulf Shores. We played Kiva Dunes the day before and were told by people at Kiva and on reviews that, Kiva Dunes was the superior course. After playing them both I can honestly say that I don’t know if one is better than the other as far as layout, scenery, conditions, and playability. Both are beautiful and really fun to play.
Peninsula’s conditions were perfect from tee to green. Also, I thought the greens ran just a hair faster at Peninsula (which I like).
Where the Peninsula Golf Club pulled ahead was in the staff. Austin in the pro shop was absolutely top notch. He went above and beyond to make sure our experience was great. Mission accomplished!
Also, the beverage cart team and the rangers were all great and genuinely cared if you were enjoying yourself.
We shall return!
I highly recommend spending a morning or afternoon there playing the greatest game in the world.

Save your money

For $00 it was a rip off. This is a $60 course at BEST. The fairways were thin and the greens slow. We made the turn and the hustled us of to the back nine as soon as we arrived at the club house. The Lakes nine is a joke. Trees in the middle of the fairway, no GPS, and you really need it if you are a first timer.
This was our second round in two days and this was the worst. Stay away from this golf factory. All they want is your money and they want you out of there as fast a possible to run another foursome around.
Never again.

Great Course...If You Know The Course!?!?

Honestly, the Peninsula Golf Club is really a beautiful course, but it would be hard for me to recommend it to anyone playing it for the first time...no GPS, no map of the course, no map of the holes...unless you drive up to see the hole you're playing before you play it, there are too many blind shots for the average golfer. You have no idea about water, marsh areas, hazards, etc...I believe my group hit 7 balls into hazard areas that we could not see from where we were.

Again, the course was beautifully maintained, and the staff is very polite and courteous...but without some map and distance to where you need to go, this is not a very "fair playing" course without some course knowledge.

Friendly, flexible, professional

Played in a 2-some at 2:00. Was able to move quickly through the Lakes course. We started on the Cypress course until hole 6 when several foursomes arrives to play in a tournament. We called the clubhouse and they said there was a mixup and they allowed us to play the Lakes again and then play the Marsh for free. They were very friendly and professional. The courses were challenging but fair.

Marsh 9 is very good

Lakes and Cypress 9’s didn’t feel like a $100 round of golf. Not a memorable hole out there. Marsh is the newest and had many many interesting and scenic holes.

Don’t go

Had a foursome. Had a 7:32 tee time and was through 5 holes in 58minutes. Ranger came up to us and told us our pace of play was too slow. We talked to him and he agreed our pace was perfectly fine(Nobody was waiting on us). The next hole someone two groups back drove over and started yelling during someone in my groups back swing.
