The first private Jack Nicklaus Signature course to open in the state of Delaware, the fairways of this fabulous 18-hole layout are routed around a massive residential development at The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay. With almost half the holes skirting the tidal wetlands of the Bay and Lingo Creek, accuracy is most certainly the golfing watchword at The Peninsula.

Notable holes on the front nine include the 194-yard 5th (where the offset green sits behind a small marsh) and the 535-yard 7th (where a sea of sand runs along the right flank of the fairway). On the back nine, the 459-yard 11th is a wonderful cape hole, whilst the short par four 15th is just the right length to entice big hitters into going for the green off the tee.

The 565-yard home hole doglegs left around water from tee to green, with the Golden Bear himself calling this one “The Pebble Beach of the East”. Perhaps Jack can be accused of talking up the hole just a little but it’s a spectacular finisher nonetheless.

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
