Architect Tom Fazio designed all 36 holes at The Resort at Pelican Hill, as well as the nearby 18-hole course at Oak Creek Golf Club, to which resort guests also have access.
OCEAN NORTH: Fazio's design here takes advantage of the ocean views, open canyons, and elevated plateaus. Several cliff-side holes add to the experience.
OCEAN SOUTH: The shorter South 18 plays through more eucalyptus and sage, although 270° ocean views are available on several holes.
The daily fee here is $290, although sliding twilight rates are offered.

A solid Fazio track that is a tourist attraction. Play was slow, it cost a fortune(like anything in CA), but the staff was awesome. It is like Barton Creek Foothills near the Pacific Ocean.

When Pelican reopened it was clear that they were trying to be "Pebble Beach South." I have news for them, it isn't even in the same league. The course has been open now for a few years and the fairways are still spotty and rough. At $300+ for a green fee you'd think they'd put a little more water and fertilizer on the course. Their sister course, Oak Creek, is 1/3 the price and in much better shape. The greens are good, a bit on the slow side, but roll true. The views are pretty good, but not Pebble-like. There are some fun driving holes where you have to hit across canyons, but none of these add up to being a great course. Definitely not worth more than $100 round.

Quite a splurge, but a great experience! I have living in OC my entire life... it was about time I played this course. The caddy was great, weather was great, views/course was immaculate. Expensive round but it was less than a trip to Carmel.
