Peninsula on the Indian River Bay Opens in Delaware

The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay, Delaware’s first private and gated residential golf resort, opened its Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course to members on April 28, 2006.

Boasting 18 holes that hug the waterfront along Indian River Bay and Lingo Creek, the members-only golf complex runs through each of the nine neighborhoods planned for the development. The facility features a clubhouse, driving range, practice green, pro shop, cart storage, lounges, locker rooms and a 19th hole grill. Troy Flateau will oversee the Troon Golf-managed course as director of golf.

The 30,000-square-foot clubhouse, scheduled to open later this year, will boast fine dining and other club facilities. Access to the clubhouse will be available only to home owners within the development.

The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay will hold its official grand opening at the end of June, when Jack Nicklaus will play his ceremonial opening round.
