Pleasantly surprised

I saw reviews from last year for this course and was leery about the conditions but the course is in good shape. I am in Florida on vacation and would like to bring my wife to ride with me but was told I can’t even though there was nobody in front or behind me.
Other than that it’s a nice course.

Lots of water

Most holes have h2o on both sides of fairways. Big hitters without control beware. Still recovering post hurricanes, but very playable.

Fairly good golf course

Fairways look good but very little roll and ball gets muddy. Green look good but very slow. The rough is puffy grass or hardpan. We play there because you can usually have a quick round of 3 hours or so

Grass on the fairways

I had not played this course in about 9 months because it had become a joke of a course. I was pleasantly surprised when I played yesterday. The fairways were green and cut. I did not lose 1 ball on the fairway as I did the last time. The greens were in good shape; looks like they got rid of the fungus. The rough is another story, dead grass, not cut and pretty scruffy looking. It seems the owners are making an attempt to bring the course back; hope they continue to work on the rough. The tee boxes for the most part were good. We had a 4:30 tee time and a sign said the pro shop closes at 4:30. We got there ant 4:31 and wanted to use the restrooms and the pro shop was locked; fortunately the associate came to the door and let us in. One other issue is that there is no drinking water on the course, they need to correct this. Even though there were minor issues I will be back as long as they continue to improve.

Big improvement

I had played this course before and knew not to expect much. But that has all changed. From tee to green including the traps, this is a very well maintained golf course. Staff friendliness was always exceptional and still is. If you haven't played Pelican Bay for a while, you should try it again.

Greatly Improved!

Pelican Bay golf course has been in fairly poor condition for the past several years. I am happy to say that the owners have put a lot of effort into getting the course back into respectful playing conditions. The fairways are in great condition...as good as any course in the county. The greens are also very good! What a difference from a few years ago! The rough is a little sparse in a few areas and is the only thing that needs some improvement. Once this is addressed, I would give it 4 stars. Play Pelican Bay...You won't be disappointed!

Course was much better than expected for the price. Fairways were green, tee boxes were grassy, But ok, the greens were growing and very slow. Contrary to reviews I have read, the staff both before and after my round were friendly and helpful.
Will be back!

course very improved

The course conditions are so much better than last year I could hardly believe the results. They did an amazing job of upgrading this course. There are a few spots that need to be dealt with. Jim
