4.2/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web
The center piece of the Peninsula is its 27-hole championship golf course that has been selected as one of the "most memorable and enjoyable" courses in the southeast. The course was designed by Earl Stone to offer a constantly changing variety of golf and visual appeal that will keep even the most avid golfer challenged and captivated both by its design and surroundings. The playing is accentuated by its three distinctive nine-hole courses that offer you a dramatically different playing experience time after time.

  • Got the double play and played back to back days. Had early am tee times. First day was paired with a twosome and second day solo. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Courses were in excellent condition. Played from blue tees first day and struggled a bit. Mainly because of my drive not being up to par. Played whites second day and had much better and enjoyable experience. Cold apples on 1st tees, towels in carts, and saw beverage cart both days. Overall very positive experience. Would highly recommend.
  • Course was nice and the staff seemed friendly until the whole experience turned sour ....a grounds manager or someone along those lines came up to my gf and I on hole 8 of the lakes course and said play a few holes twice take your time bc the grounds crew is up ahead working and at this rate you'll catch them I said "sounds good just tell the two women behind me bc they have been right behind us all morning!" ( They were members of course) so what ensued was I never even got a chance to play any hole twice and when I did try and slow my play the two women were hitting balls within yards of me on the fairway!!!! When I finally had enough and with there balls withing talking distance these women proceeded to complain about slow play! Overall it was a bad experience bc it was constant chaos after the first nine....grounds people everywhere standing in the way being rude and running equipment by the tee boxes. Seems like a like of organization for a golf course that charges what they do!! I will not return seeing how I'm on vacation and wanted to enjoy a peaceful round of golf and I ended up dealing with rude members and grounds keeping crew then to top it off an unorganized staff!
  • Course was in great shape. However customer service was less than par. No water on course. No beverage cart. My partner and I was in bad shape after 9. Seemed like we were a bother to everyone. Won't be back. Was told they are cutting hours to save money?? Course was full. How much $$$ did they lose?
  • Me and my dad played today and from the pulling in to the parking lot till the moment we left great staff and great course
  • Update 11/17/2015-- I wanted to update my post to reflect the Positive Experience I have had since since Management focused on the problem. The feedback I am getting is that the Honours Corporate HR has been involved and that while the employee was not terminated, a corrective action plan is in place to insure that Peninsula is the safe and enjoyable golf course that it is intended to be. In addition, the General Manager at Peninsula has provided a complimentary round for my entire group of 20. Our plan is to play Peninsula as part of our annual golf event in 2016. I am Satisfied with the way that Peninsula has addressed the issue. Original Post- I was cursed out and threatened by a Turf Management employee on a mower during my morning round at Peninsula on Friday October 31st, 2015. The General Manager there is aware of the issue but did not deal with the situation to my satisfaction. In fact, I think I was intentionally mislead as to the actions he took in order to mollify me. That is also unacceptable. The employee did not follow Standard Protocol in managing his machine(did not turn it off so he could hear approaching golfers) and then Cursed me out Quote “FUXX You AXXHOLE, YELL FOUR…(which I did but he could not hear) after I accidentally hit the mower (not him) with my second shot on a par five. When I approached him to express my concern with his behavior.. He then stated a couple Quote… "IF I GET OFF THIS MOWER, I AM GOING to FUXX YOU UP SOO BAD”… After a heated conversation he then drove off recklessly almost rolling over me with the machine. This event ruined my round and had a direct effect on the round of those with me and the results of my entire group. (20 paying customers) At a minimum they should have comped our round or offered us a replay. Not sure what kind of employee background checks are performed at Honours Golf but I would keep an eye out for workers on mowers.
