Good layout but....

Interesting layout. Good variety of holes. Half of the greens are dead and grass on the fairways is sparse. Overall you get what you pay for.

The absolute worst course I have ever seen.

This is the first time I have ever written a review, About anything in my life. So I’ll keep it short.

The course is the worst course you can imagine. The fair ways are all sand not grass. So it’s literally like being in the bunker all day. I’m not exaggerating . The greens are not greens. They are dirt . The whole green area is dead.

We asked the pro what’s up at the 9th. (Nice guy) he informed us, that the sprinklers broke 6 months ago. And still haven’t been fixed. And the greens have a fungus that’s why they don’t have a blade of grass on them.

I bought it golf now very cheap. But it wasn’t worth $5 honestly.
The course should be shut down and renovated from the ground up. It’s in absolutely horrible condition . Honestly please don’t play here under any circumstance you will not enjoy your day. I’m not a fancy guy by any means. And it dosent take a lot to impress me. So don’t think I’m a golf snob that didn’t like that I had to carry my own clubs, not the case.

You will have a better day golfing at the park with a solo cup as you flag it’s that bad.

Terrible condition! Sand traps have more grass than the greens and fairways.

Poor conditions

Overall the course was poorly maintained. The greens have bald spots on them and none of the sand traps had any rakes on them. The golf carts didn’t have any either. The staff was leas then pleased to see us. During our travel from the 9th hole to the 10th hole you have to pass by the club house, there was a staff member sitting in a golf cart, he didn’t wave, didn’t speak, just mean mugged us as we drove by. We had to wait to get checked in. A staff member never drove around offering any drinks for purchase. There pro store barley had any merchandise in it. Even the men’s bathroom was unavailable in the club house because another player destroyed it somehow. Overall a poor experience.

Whine & Geez

We play 120 rounds a year and 25 of those are at Pelican South. Layout is great, conditions depends on the weather. I had an 81 with a lost ball and got beat by four strokes. Thin lies with sparse grass? Hit down on the ball. Inconsistent traps and greens? Hit the pin. Not nice enough for you? I've played all the top rated courses around and all but 3 have terrible greens due to dry weather. WHINERS ALERT! This is golf not bowling.

Where's the grass?

Almost all the greens are damaged and you have to search for grass in the fairways .

Course is in terrible shape

I golfed this course for the first time and it was in terrible shape. It was like playing in a pasture. Greens were rock hard and the fairways were brown. I do not recommend going to this course.

Great value

Nice course. Some challenging holes with a lot of water in play. A few greens need some work but it’s early in the year.
Staff was awesome.
Good layout and great value.

Don’t waste your money

Course needs a lot of work. Greens are horribly burned out. It looks like they are about to go out of business.

You Get What You Pay For

This is a pleasant course spoilt by terrible greens and extremely rough and bumpy pathways. Both are indicative of poor maintenance.
However on the positive side the price was right so I came away happy..

Worst Course I’ve ever played.

If there was a choice below 1 star that’s what I would have given it. Course maintenance crew should be replaced. All greens looked like ground under repair. Will never play again! Paid 15 dollars and it was too much. Don’t waste your time or money on this course.
