Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club

When you think of idyllic golf courses around the world, some spectacular golf destinations may immediately come to mind, such as Augusta National, Pebble Beach or TPC Sawgrass. However, a course that deserves just as much attention due to the beautiful natural scenery surrounding this golfing paradise is the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club.

Located on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, the Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club is consistently voted one of the “most memorable and enjoyable” courses in the Southeast by Golf Digest. Enjoy 27 distinctive holes, each offering a unique challenge and perfectly groomed to ensure visitors from around the world experience one of the finest courses on the Gulf Coast.

The Cypress course offers several opportunities to improve your score, but it often leads golfers to a false sense of security because a high number is just around the corner. The lakes course offers undulating greens and perhaps one of the most iconic holes on the peninsula – the short par 3 8th hole, which is an intimidating tee shot for even the most confident golfer. The Marsh Course is not only a collection of intriguing golf holes, but also a wildlife viewing paradise, with alligators, eagles and other species frequently sighted on this nine.
