About The Resort at Pelican Hill

The Resort at Pelican Hill is one of SoCal's trendiest getaways, whether it's for golf or to unwind. The resort takes inspiration from the 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio. Each one-story bungalow guest room or suite features its own limestone fireplace, private terrace and marble bath. The 2- to 4-bedroom villas are secluded within their own gated community. Guests can lounge at the Coliseum pool and spa or shuttle to the Crystal Cove beach. Tom Fazio's North and South courses both kiss the Pacific Ocean with outstanding views throughout the round. Six restaurants will tempt your appetite.

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.

ROI only OK

As always, great views on the North Course, and it was a clear day. Unfortunately, pace of play (also seemingly as always) was pretty slow. In defense of the marshals they DID try to keep things moving - part of the issue is the distance between tees and greens, particularly for people who have never played here before. Again, not bad but questionable given the rates...

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.

Awesome Course

Tremendous property in swanky hills above Crystal Cove. The North Course is well designed with many good golf holes. Tom Fazio quality on very special piece of land. Panoramic views of Ocean on every hole, mansions built on cliffs of canyons are cool to see but not too close to take away from the game. Getable for a good striker of the golf ball , forgiving enough for the high handicapper. Overall, not an easy course (have you played a Fazio that is?). The greens large and undulated with decent speed make for a challenging layout, especially from 6500 yards or more. Par 3s solid holes, 4s and 5s are the stars of this course. I got a deal time of $205 and thought it a good value for this quality of golf in a great location. Torrey Pines is a true ‘Championship Course’ with several iconic holes and my favorite in Southern California. Pelican Hills North is a close second. I look forward to play Pelican Hills South in the future. Cheers

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.
