We (my friends and I (12 in all)) played this course as part of our golf package which was set up using Pams Golf in Ocean City, MD. The course was about 1/2 hour from our hotel in Ocean City MD.

When we pulled up to the gates the first thought running through my mind was ritzy and "Oh My God, these people are going to be so snobbish. On the contrary, from the guard at the gate, to the bag drop gentlemen and the folks in the pro shop and full service restaraunt, we were treated with respect and friendly smiles. The pro shop had a pretty good selection of clothing items at all prices as well as a good assortment of shoes etc.

Difficulty: It is pretty tough to grade the difficulty of this course. The day we played the wind was probably blowing a steady 25 mph or better. I personally have never played in such high wind. I think if the wind was less, this course would have played a bit easier. However; don't shy away from it even if you are a beginner. Everything was great, from the tee boxes to the greens. Greens rolled pretty true and were very fast.

Maintenance - It appears as if the maintenance staff stays right on top of everything. As I stated earlier, the carts were clean and in excellent condition and the course itself was immaculate.

Scenery - The scenery wasn't quite what I expected. There are homes all around the golf course, but they are beautiful. There are plenty of holes with water and other floral/botanical things which make it very pretty. Definately not the ugliest course I have ever played.

Value - My friends and I played this course as part of a golf package which we organized through Pams Golf in Ocean City, MD. Based on what we paid for the package, and the fact that this is a private course, I am sure we got a great deal.

Overll - We do a golf trip to OC every year. Hopefully we can play this course again next year and the wind won't be so bad. If you are going to do a golf package to OC, please, by all means include this as one of your courses. It is well worth the drive from OC.

The private 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Golf Course opened in April 2006. Seven holes of the Delaware golf course are set dramatically along the Indian River Bay and Lingo Creek, and set the tone for the special feel of the Troon Golf Experience at The Peninsula. With four sets of tees, the course offers an enjoyable experience for all levels of golfers. This past summer The Peninsula partnered with the PGA of America and U.S. Kids Golf and installed two sets of "Family Friendly" tees. By adding two sets of tee locations (Blue Level 1 - 1100 yards and Gold Level 2 tees - 1900 yards) all family members are able to enjoy the round.

COURSE CONDITION: The course was in excellent shape, every inch of the course. The greens were fast and slippery, little difficult holding the greens with a low iron shot.

FACILITIES: Excellent practice facilities, grill room food was good, and well equipped pro shop.

SHOT of the DAY #1: Hole 9, Par 3, 180 Yards. Due to the windy conditions and water on the entire right side of the fairway, I aimed 50 yards left of the entire green, at a tree half way up the fairway. I hit a high 2 iron, the wind grabbed it and pushed it to the right, hit the green and rolled to 2 feet, basic tap in for BIRDIE! The other three players, first player – low liner 5 yards off the fairway rolled onto the green, Par. Next two players, wet.

This is the greatest golf course I have ever played!

The Peninsula Golf & Country Club is the 1st private Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in the state of Delaware. The golf course is very playable for all abilities, with four sets of tees ranging from 6,200 yards to over 7,300 yards from the championship tees.
The golf course is in perfect condition, greens are the most true I have ever seen. Some of the most gorgeous views in the area. I would recommend playing this gem if you have an opportunity.
