Peninsula Golf Resort
Greens were good. Very true roll with moderate speed. I would have liked a bit faster but over all very good. Fairways were good. Bunkers should be played as ground under repair or preferred lie in sand. Much of the sand has washed out with so much rain this year. Grounds crew should use this opportunity to remove the rocks and small boulders from traps. Course was extremely soft and it's deficiencies seem to be due to wet summer. I will play here again.

What could have been...
Penninsula is a great challenging course and we are fortunate enough for it to be in Central KY. Too bad it's not what it once was! The bunkers are plentiful, but unplayable with dirt and rocks. The yardages are tough to figure which makes for some difficult approach shots. Where did the cart GPS systems go? The tee boxes, fairways and greens are in good shape. Front 9 always seems to be more challenging than the back.
I don't claim a home course, but prefer to float around and hit up a handful of courses in Central KY each summer. Penninsula is definitely worth one trip to Lancaster each summer.

Course was in much better condition than in the past. Other than the bunkers it was great. I would play again tomorrow.

Course in good shape
Had a very enjoyable round. The tee boxes and fairways were in good shape and the greens were in excellent shape. They were tricky at times with undulations and ridges making it challenging to make a proper read. The sand traps were not good. They were hard as a rock and full of rocks. The only other problem was finding the course. I had been there before; otherwise, I am not sure we would have been on time.

There were several large groups playing the course near my tee time. It made for very slow play and there were no "rangers" on the course to keep play moving.

First round here in a while, and disappointing
When this course first opened I played here occasionally. It isn't close to my home, and was often hard to get a tee time. And it was challenging.
Two of these circumstances are still true. But getting my tee time was easy, and now I know why. The tee boxes were abysmal, unlevel and hard ground underneath. Amazingly, many of the fairways were also rock-hard. But the bunkers were the real surprise. Most had decayed to hard pan with no sand at all, while others that I remembered from the past had been allowed to go back to grass.
Pete Dye would be quite unhappy with what's happened to his creation. If word had gotten around about the current quality of this course, it had not reached me.
On the plus side, the staff was quite friendly.
We were caught up in a large contingent of stay-and-play guests who were all slow players, so we endured all of this for nearly five hours.
I don't imagine I will make the trip to the Peninsula again for some time.
