​Golf Course & Clubhouse Renovations Complete

Gulf Shores, Alabama, has long been known as a low-key destination with sugar-sand beaches, delicious Southern dining, and ocean sports aplenty. Over the past three decades, it has also become recognized for its premier golf. 

The 27-hole Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club, opened in 1995, is one of the big reasons why. Over the years, this Earl Stone design has received widespread acclaim, including being named among "The Best Conditioned Courses" and "Top Courses to Play in Alabama" by Golf Advisor; one of "America's Top Golf Courses" by Zagat's Survey; one of the "Best Places to Play" by Golf Digest.

Not one to sit on its laurels, the facility recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation of its award-winning golf course, clubhouse, and racquet club. The six-month golf course renovation project included extensive bunker renovations on all three nines, with bunkers being removed, reshaped and relocated to provide new strategic design features.

In addition, cart paths were repaired or replaced. Trees were removed and trimmed to increase air circulation and improve agronomic conditions, while the forest floor was cleared of undergrowth. Golf guests will also take note of the club's new fleet of E-Z-GO golf carts.

​Off the golf course, Peninsula's 8,000-square-foot clubhouse was also renovated. Enhancements include a new roof, air conditioning system, new flooring, fresh paint, new fitness equipment, laser-graded resurfaced tennis courts, salt water indoor pool, and more. Landscaping around the clubhouse was also refreshed and the club's signature pier and boardwalk have been renewed.
