Extrememly slow play. Twosomes and threesomes slow play down. They wait at your car for a tip and then the prices for non-members (snowbirds) go up monthly. Members, of course, have priority and contribute to the slow play. The two nine hole are fair but the creek course is far out and narrow.

Wife and I were on vacation to Siesta Key and Pelican Pointe is less than 30 minutes away. They have 3 full 9s. Very nice neighborhood driving in. Clubhouse is a nice setup, water and ice machines right outside. Practice facility was a mess but it looked like they were working on it. Being August and off season, this was understandable. Course itself was in excellent shape, fairways were perfect, tee boxes in good shape and greens rolled true…especially considering the amount of rain we had in last few days. Fair layout but not too challenging, made for a nice day on vacation. Staff was very friendly. Price was very reasonable but again, it was off season. I do not know how much it runs in January. We will play the course again the next time we are down.

I've played all 3 (9 hole) courses and I think they are all great tracts.Really good practice area to practice your long game as well as your chipping and putting. I've enjoyed playing here and would recommend it to others. They have a special $62 (plus tax) rate on Weds, Sat, and Sun plus a 9 hole rate of $35 plus tax if you only have time for 9.
