Maybe its nice in summer

My main issue with my game this morning was that i was given zero indication until i approached the first green....that the greens were not in play. Apparently when theres a frost warning (it was 50 degrees by 10am, thanks global warming) they spray paint a white circle 10 yards in front of the green and plant a flag in it. Honestly i was highly disappointed.

Hit or Miss

Course had temporary greens and no carts. You would need to call before going as these conditions seem to happen a few times a week. The guys working there are friendly and professional.

More goose crap then Fairway !

I played here in September and it was OK but wow how things changed. They don’t even have the greens available you hit into the fairway and there’s a huge circle spray-painted with a flag sticking out of the ground. The amount of goose crap that’s everywhere will add an extra 10 pounds to your pushcart. And the proof of how rude The staff and overall just the course itself is is evident in the first sign that you read say no beginners no mulligans it’s just an overall terrible place to golf. It’s a crappy nine hole course but they act like they’re Augusta.

Disappointed

Have played this course countless times growing up. Have never played a course where they setup temporary greens in the middle of the fairway. Have never heard of this and is the only course that I’ve seen doing it. Was basically a joke hitting your approach shot. If that’s the case then I would charge less bc that’s not golf. How can you putt on fairway. Didn’t even cut it differently either.

Value for late in the season

Throughout the year, peninsula is a good value. This was the end of the season and there was frost, so the greens were off limits. Otherwise you can't ask for much more for the price.
