"Pelican Hill Golf Club is home of two award winning Golf Courses, an expansive Pro Shop, and a DynamicTeaching Center. Located along the Southern California Coast, from high above the Pacific Ocean, the Ocean North Course and the Ocean South Course each offer players of all abilities the opportunity to play and enjoy two of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the World of Golf. Both are designed by famed architect Tom Fazio. The most difficult decision to make at Pelican Hill Golf Club is which course to play first. "

The above is is quotes, because it is from the Pelican Hills Site, verbatim. I have played both the north and south course, and they are very beautiful, scenic difficult and impressive. being a 'bogie golfer' (Handicap of 24), I had a bit of difficulty playing these courses, never shot below 94, but enjoyed the challenge tremendously. My putting was off every time I played this course, and the greens are very challenging. My favorite is the more difficult North course, (hole number 18 is senically pictured above). Both courses are World Class, and with green fees ranging from $150 - $230, they should be!! It is one of the top 100 golf courses in the world. (So far, I have played 15 of the top 100 courses.) Drives need to be long and straight, a fade or draw comes in very handy on some holes. Obstacles include bunkers, canyons, the ocean, ponds, rolling greens, wind, hilly terrain, and beautiful distracting views. The golf carts have laser range finders, with computer display that display the distance to greens and hazards. This helps, since there is no guessing on the distance. This course is open to the public, my playing times for 18 holes range from a quick 4 hours to 5 hours. It is truly a GREAT course to play. The staff are all truly outstanding, and service is likewise.
