Views of the Pacific Ocean are magnificent from many go their terraces, which are heated from the travertine floors on up. Pizza on the Grill terrace is really good. Actually, I've never had a disappointing meal in any of their restaurants.

So my dear husband won a free week stay at this resort for winning a sales contest ... nice!!! Not only were the accommodations included, so were all the meals, all the golf and free side trips for anyone that didn't play golf. Granted that this is not the typical stay, regardless, it was a supreme week. The villas -... More

We stayed here last spring at a conference and it was a fabulous resort. The bungalows were sumptuous and we had an amazing patio with a great view. The entire resort is gorgeous and the service excellent. We attended a reception on the grounds and they are beautiful as well. I understand why they host so many weddings here. And... More

Amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful course. 2 courses to play and both are worth the time.

We have golfed all over the U.S. and this is probably the best golf experience we have had. That includes trips we have taken to the Rockies, Smokey Mountains and Hawaii. The views are incredible and both courses are outstanding.

Pelican Hill is not for budget travelers, diners or golfers. Everything is top of the line, including the prices. If money is not an issue, you won't go wrong here.

Played the South (Ocean) course and thought the layout was superb. Very challenging with many hidden traps, especially the slick greens which gave me nightmares. Given the cost of a game though was dissapointed with the number of unfixed divots on the course, probably more the fault of slack folders than the course though. All in all I would recommend...

I played the North course during a stay at the resort and it was one of the best days of golf I've ever had. The course itself winds it's way up and down the hills above the Pacific, and although none of the holes on the North course come close to the water, you get beautifully distracting views with nearly...

yes, great golf course (I prefer the North away from the water for the views/conditions but the South does have 2 only of the most spectacular ocean holes) layout but only average course conditions (and I have played here all seasons recently). The greens are the exception being in great condition in most seasons) No real landscaping or other improvements... More
