Ocean View from 17th green

Good course. Unfortunately due to the rain, we have to play by cart path only. View is great. Greens are impossible to read

Best golf club in Southern California

The most beautiful property you’ve ever seen. Beautiful vistas of the ocean with gorgeous sunsets. Two amazing golf courses, immaculately maintained. The South Course runs close to the water while the North Course has more expansive views and is a harder course. Both are beautiful and it’s hard to pick one over the other. If you have the option of two rounds, play both courses. No question you will be more satisfied than going to ANY other golf course in Southern California. Way better than Torrey Pines and arguably as good as Pebble Beach.

Third and likely last trip ...

We had stayed at the lodge and played both courses twice two years ago. We came back b/c we had a nice experience: high quality of service, course conditions and management. This is no the case now. It was bad from start to finish: poor attitude/sense of entitlement from valet to pro shop to poor course conditions and unfriendly servers at the grille. I won’t waste more time describing other disappointments. Maybe it’s new management or too much self-propaganda, but we’ll unlikely return and will discourage other high-end friends to stay/play here. It’s too bad b/c it’s such a nice property.

Excellent Resort Golf

Played Pelican Hill for the first time today. Really fun course and worth the money. The North course was challenging and fair. There are a lot of great vistas and and some awesome canyon golf.

Positives:

-Carts are brand new and nice with a non-intrusive GPS.

-The course is in excellent shape. Great greens that run quick.

-Excellent locker room and amenities.

-Challenging design. Every hole feels unique. There's a lot of strategy needed.

-Ocean views!

-Valet parking, excellent service.

-All day breakfast burritos.

Negatives:

-Not inexpensive

-Ryan in the golf shop was curt and unwelcoming.

-Range hits off artificial grass.

Great course

This is one of the nicest courses in Southern California. A bit of a drive from Los Angeles but certainly worth it for the view and course conditions. Staff for the most part - courteous and friendly.

Practice facility very nice with different target greens to aim at. Today we hit off grass although at times, they move the hitting areas to the artificial turf.

Fun course with lots of different looks and elevation changes, ocean views and excellent conditions. Greens are rolling true and takes awhile to figure out.

Definitely a must play course.

Spectacular views and conditions

Most I ever paid for a round, forecaddie included. It was worth it and lived up to expectation. Truly enjoyed the views and layout. Not for beginners. Caddie helped read greens but also told you where to put your drive. One disappointment was hitting off mats to warm up. For full price we should have been able to use grass range.

Pelican Hill is a special place. I love both courses and I look forward to heading to California many times a year to play here. Typically I play the late afternoon, never have I had any issue with pace of play, the course is immaculate, views are stunning and the overall life experience is why I can't wait to get back there. Club house, change rooms and all facilities are luxury. I take advantage of the mens room after a round and then head in for a bite to eat. If your in the area you have to experience Pelican Hill, world class everything!
