When you’re ready to relax, hop in a golf cart and cruise the Earl Stone-designed course. Peninsula boasts more than 7,000 yards of play and offers a challenging game for all skills levels. The course is also rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest and has been noted as one of the “most memorable and enjoyable” courses in the southeast.

How to Play the Hole
Start your game on the Cypress course’s hole number one. The pros at Peninsula say your shot must avoid the trees at the corner of the sharp dog leg to the right. Long hitters may hit past the trees and short hitters should hit to the 150-yard marker.
