Holes offer a variety of layouts. I generally use all the clubs in my bag during a round. I moved back to this area 2 years ago and this is the best value in the area if you are not interested in putting up $30k to join CCLA.

The owner have invested heavily in upgrading the club house and the course. Green run true. For locals they offer many membership options at reasonable prices.

The MGA and SMGA host numerous tournaments throughout the year that are a lot of fun. The membership is very inviting and welcomes golfers of all levels.

As always, this course and facility never ever let me down. The course is always a challenge and is in tip top shape. I played this the day before going back offshore and it was everything and then some. I have always enjoyed the lay out and challenges of this course. I would recommend it to anyone.

I have had issues with using golf Now at a few courses but not Pelican Point. The staff had me out the door and to the range in about a minute for the advertised price. The course was in good shape and the greens rolled just fine. There was actually a tournament there but the staff had set things up so that we never saw them and it did not affect pace of play.

This course presents a decent challenge, and is a beautiful location in the midst of a very nice housing subdivision. The fun here is in the short game as the bunkers and hilly areas around the green protect the hole from casual players such as myself. The real treat of this course is the 16th, which is a picturesque island hole that makes you feel like you are playing a PGA course. It is reminiscent of the 17th at the players championship (except its a par 4), and the image of it really sticks in your mind. The staff were all very friendly and the regulars seem to know each other very well. It just seems like there is a great sense of community at this course. Definitely will be back again. Probably one of the very best places to play in the State of Louisiana.

This was the first time we have played here. I think once you know the layout of the course, it will be much easier to play. The entire golf complex is huge, and we got lost trying to find our way back to the main road after finishing our round.

We were forced to play the back nine twice (two sets of tees white & gold). In the past it was an 18 hole golf course. I do not think we will return for future outings.

Pelican point has been a favorite of mine in the past. Sadly this is no longer the case. The $20 green fee is for 9 holes only, expect to pay the normal $30 to play 18 on the back nine of the old lakes course. The greens were aerated the 3 days prior to play with no notification from golf now. Needless to say for the time being there is a ton of sand on the greens. All in all it was not what I was expecting and in the future for the price I'll find a different course to play.

The course was in really nice shape and was a great value. We played as a foursome and finished 9 holes in 1:38, well under the 2 hour allotment. However, as we were about to tee off on hole 8, our group was approached by the marshal and told to speed up. At that time, we had completed 7 holes in 1:20. He told us we were holding up everyone on the course and the pro shop had received several complaints about us. He did not inquire about what time we had teed off. The group behind us was just teeing off on 7. THIS ENCOUNTER RUINED OUR ENTIRE EXPERIENCE. The staff in the pro shop apologized and said they had not received any calls about us. I will be hard pressed to play here again after this experience.
