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

A year ago (in February, 2013), I wrote a less than excellent (3 bullet) review of our time at Pelican Hill. In that experience, I played the North Course. I am pleased to amend my review this time to four bullets--still, I suspect, not what the management is looking for, but probably earned for reasons I will describe. The course:... More

Played North course last weekend with a friend in town. First time I've played with a caddy. We had Pink, a Jamaican caddy. It was a little awkward at first for me, but the guy could read greens like a pro. He had sound advice for us off the tee and on approaches to the hole. That part of the... More

We have been playing golf at Pelican for well over 12 years. The courses (North and South) are fantastic with wonderful views of the ocean. On the North you see more of the ocean. On the South, there are a couple of holes that play along the ocean. The continued drought has made the fairways very dry, but that does... More

Loved the views, staff was accommodating. Course was challenging, both North and South. Outstanding play. Grounds well kept....a few rough patches along the way but the grounds were immaculate. Pricey, but considering the environment...no complaints.
