Golf club operations run smoothly, from driving in to drop clubs off to getting the round started. Was disappointed in the only putting green closed for my three days and no practice bunker/chipping area. Views from course beautiful and course in great shape. Would have expected faster greens. With caddies rounds gets fairly expensive. Played four times, twice on both... More

North course has better views, longer play and personally preferable. South course is worth visit for out of town visitors as there are a few holes down by the beach. Nice 19th hole choices.

Played both courses and they were fun to play. Nice challenge and having a caddie was a big help. Probably a little over priced but the services were excellent.

I played the South Course and our Villa looked out over the North Course. The courses were in great shape, are fair and challenging. Caddies are knowledgeable and helpful.

The views and condition of the course is top rate, as are the prices. It is worth playing at least once for the experience. Bring golf balls.

The Pelican Hill Golf Club is fantastic with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. I was attended a business conference there which was phenomenal from the lunches on the terrace to dinner in the restaurant.

Pelican Hill is one of the best golf courses I have ever played, and I have over 620 on my list. This resort, although a bit pricey, is awesome and a round of golf you will never forget. Couse we played was the South Course, but the North Course is equally as good. If you are in LA, play this... More

Two of the best public golf courses in So. California with views that will inspire low handicappers as well as beginners to the game. Challenging, yet fair… The caddies are very good and be sure to stay for lunch or dinner too.

This is by far the best public course in Orange County, and arguably in Southern California and beyond. The only downside is that it is more expensive than others, and that it is not private. other than that you cannot beat the views, the course layout, and the service. It is truly an iconic course, and no review can do... More
