Not quite up to par

Greens were excellent. Fairways and areas around the greens, not so much. Lot of bare spots and weeds. Course itself awesome to look at and play. Some really cool par threes. Certainly a high rent district type of place. Too bad course maintenance wasn’t in step with everything else.

Pace and pin positions

As always great views on the South Course, but be ready for a 5 hour round and flags sitting on crowns. Views are spectacular but must be better for the price.

Course is over rated for the cost

Pace of play was slow. Greens were beat up. Not worth the money.

5 amazing Par 3’s

This course is on a very special property with forced carries over canyons that remind you of the Caribbean with the ocean in the background. But what really stands out are 5 Stellar Par 3’s Fazio always knows how to get the best land to build on. The North is good bit the South is better if you only have a chance to play one. If you need a caddie Jason was amazing best caddie I ever had his knowledge of not just the course but also the game is second to none and the greens are tricky with the ocean and canyons.

As Good As Golf Gets!

This is a must play golf course for any level. I would consider this course one of the best courses in the country. Stunning Mountain and Ocean views, PGA maintenance conditions , and supper friendly staff. If you love golf you will love this course.

Gorgeous views with some routing quirks

On one level, that Tom Fazio was able to fit two golf courses, let alone one, onto the terrain at Pelican Hill is quite a feat. Still the South Course ended up with a bit of an odd routing - lots of driving between a few holes - in order to execute the course. The 18 constituent holes, though, are solid, with wonderful ocean views And some fun contouring around several greens. The oceanside par-3 12th and 13th holes are great selfie spots, too

Poor Value

Driving range sub par. Grass with sand underneath.

No scorecard, no water in cart

Greens were no better than any municipal golf course. Very bumpy and not well maintained.

Pace of play was terrible and no Marshall in sight.

I would not recommend this golf course to anyone for the price you have to pay.

Very disappointed
