Where2Golf says: 

Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club: Golfing at Peninsula is always a pleasure, whichever of the three picturesque, natural and scenic nine-hole loops you choose to play. The green-keeping is first-rate, with the Marsh, Lakes and Cypress nines always presented in tip-top condition. Earl Stone's strong layout contains many nicely dog-legging holes, generally good-width fairways and excellent bunkering. Occasionally in the scenic mix is some very unobtrusive real estate, although the big accent here is on live oaks, cypress trees, natural vegetation and more than 30 small lakes, which will need to be negotiated at various points. The tree-lined perimeter that wraps around this flattish terrain ensures you are adequately sheltered from the main force of any breezes coming off Mobil Bay (on one side) and the Gulf of Mexico's Little Lagoon (on the other). However, this foliage also restricts you to just one impressive sea view over Mobile Bay, which comes briefly at the par-5 7th on the Lakes course. On each nine you will discover many memorable and naturally beautiful holes, often skirted by small lakes or sandy waste areas with tussocky grass. The slightly elevated greens are usually guarded by relatively shallow bunkers, grassy run-off areas, and many enjoy a majestic back-drop of impressively tall pines.
