Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club in Gulf Shores, Alabama, recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation of its golf course, clubhouse and Racquet Club. The golf course renovation project and Racquet Club enhancements were led by Honours Golf founder Bob Barrett.
During the six-month golf course renovation project, Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club’s three nine-hole courses (Marsh, Lakes and Cypress) underwent extensive bunker renovations with bunkers being removed, reshaped and relocated to provide new strategic design features. In addition, cart paths throughout the 27-hole facility 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 have access to the club’s new fleet of E-Z-Go golf carts. The 27-hole golf course opened for play in 1995 and was originally designed by Earl Stone.
“After a tough year filled with the pandemic and hurricanes, we are encouraged by what the future holds at Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club in 2021 and beyond,” Barrett said. “Gulf Shores has always been a special place to us. The enhancements and upgrades made to the courses and clubhouse create a golf experience that is truly exceptional.”
Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club is located next to the Bon Secour Wildlife Preserve and winds through over 800 acres of beautiful live oaks, cypress trees and natural vegetation. In addition to the beautiful scenery, commonly scene wildlife includes alligators and eagles.
