About The Resort at Pelican Hill

The Resort at Pelican Hill is one of SoCal's trendiest getaways, whether it's for golf or to unwind. The resort takes inspiration from the 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio. Each one-story bungalow guest room or suite features its own limestone fireplace, private terrace and marble bath. The 2- to 4-bedroom villas are secluded within their own gated community. Guests can lounge at the Coliseum pool and spa or shuttle to the Crystal Cove beach. Tom Fazio's North and South courses both kiss the Pacific Ocean with outstanding views throughout the round. Six restaurants will tempt your appetite.

A Must Play in SoCal

This place oozes wealth from the time you pull up to the valet and there are Bentleys, lambos, and ferraris sitting around everywhere. I was told people say this is the pebble beach of south California. It's not quite to that level but a very nice course and must play. Tee times can be quite pricey in the AM ($400 or more). But you can get a pretty good deal at $200-$275 after lunch. They have brand new 2022 club cars which are nice and they do have the "shark experience" on them. I played the south course from the blue tees with 25 mph winds. Even at 6200 ish yards it felt very long. Beautiful layout including two back to back par threes along the ocean that are fantastic designed holes. Ocean views on many holes. For low handicappers, the north course is definitely more of the tougher "players course" - it plays about 500-600 yards further from the tips than the south course. I personally felt I liked the south course better because I prefer a shorter more fun course and also love a few good ocean holes. Both are must plays though if you are in the Newport area!

I played the north course from the tips with 25 mph winds which was a huge mistake. It was one of the toughest courses I have played and my score was brutal. Beautiful layout. High elevation with ocean views on almost every hole.

This place is killer

Difficult track, absolutely insane views. Literally not an ugly place to stand on this entire golf course. Really tough greens. #17 is the most beautiful I’ve seen in my life and I’ve played all over the world. Only gripe would be price, but hey, it’s Newport Beach real estate, and this was not a cheap course to build (or maintain) so I get it.

Great Resort

One of the best exclusive resort courses in Cali to play. Great views on every hole. Facility great. Course was in good condition. Greens a bit rough mostly from unrepaired divots. Winds require experienced players if you want to score. If you never have played here it is worth doing so at least once. Zach says Very Swanky.
