Peninsula Golf Resort
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.

Course is in fantastic shape, fairways are filled and nice. Greens are responsive and true with a bit of speed. Rough is thick and hard to get though as it should be.

This course is quite the challenge, and Mr. Dye set it up that way. Long rough will punish you for errant shots so step up your game if you plan to score well here. Friendly staff and knew who our group was when we walked in the proshop. Highly recommended!

early in the yr
It was early in the yr and the course and staff was still under pressure to get everything together. I'm sure it is going to be nice once they get all the bugs worked out.

This course is a real challenge, but fair.
Really enjoy playing this course ! Gives you a little of everything. Terry and the staff are super nice and really try to make your visit enjoyable.

Each hole has its own challenges,
Not a gimme course, each hole has its own challenges. Greens this time of year are firm and fast. I have not stayed at the resort, I live locally and drive to the course, play and go home.
