Played it yestrday it was just ok

For sure not worth the money. 100% holiday prices, it’s a good course not $120 course. Shot a 75 lakes and marsh. Pace of play was actually pretty poor. Not sure id play it again.

Good with a slight bad taste

Greens were exceptional, the course was in great condition. Golf Popshop people were quite accommodating. The marshal directing us was quite rude and treated us like its the first time we are playing golf. I hope you all can improve upon your people skill sin that department.

Great conditions but no Marshall to enforce pace of play.

Great track and excellent practice facilities. I was part of a threesome that no showed. No Marshall on the course and people playing fivesomes and no allowing quicker play to play thru. They were angry when I passed them at the turn.

Great conditions, Great course

Enjoyed the round. Weather was got but the course played great. The course took one of bones out of rotation for aeriation so that the nines we did play played awesome. Will definitely play this course again. If you can put it in play off the tee this course is scoreable.

Very Enjoyable

Fun track. Not overly long but challenging pins and some quirky visual lines off the tee that force you to move the ball a bit. Respectably tight fairways with a good amount of trouble keep you honest. The greens rolled pretty nice, maybe not in perfect condition in a couple spots but nothing that would effect play, not fast but not slow. Starters were friendly and kept thing spaced nicely to start the round. Played in a group of 4 with a group of 4 in front and behind and never had to wait to hit nor had the group behind waiting on us, so pace of play was about perfect. All in all, great place to catch a round when your wife agrees to let you go during the family vacation!

The People were the best part.

I had a 8:20 tee time and arrival and checkin was pleasant.
The practice putting green was perfect. I was making everything. I warmed on the range but could not see where my ball was going because the range is looking directly into the sun. No golfer in the world likes hitting directly into the sun. Starter gathered me and the other single I was paired and we played the lakes and marsh. Tee boxes and fairways were perfect. The greens were nice but were not mowed the morning I played . If they were the mower was not set low enough. Greens were slower and very grainy on the course compared practice green. I made zero putts. I shot 92 and had 40 putts. I am a 4 handicap and have no problem shooting under 80 on most courses. I drove the ball great. I hit 12 of 14 fairways. The course did not play long. I had pitching wedge or sand wedge into all par 4s. The ball would not take the break because the of the grain. I hand a nice time but could have been 5 stars if greens were slightly better.

Vacation Golf

Course was recommended to me by a friend who has played it many times over the years. Even though there had been heavy rain the morning before I played, it was still a great experience. Friendly staff, well kept course and great pace of play made for a memorable afternoon of golf. If you find yourself in Gulf Shores play Peninsula Golf and Racquet club. You won’t be disappointed.

Superb!!

This has now become my favorite in the gulf shores area. From the bag drop thru the finish, everything was first rate. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The course was in great condition and the pace of play was 4:10, just has desired. Worth the money.
