With 25 years of accolades and accomplishments, it’s no wonder these two courses are described as “some of the most spectacular in golf.” The Pelican Hill Golf Club offers 36 holes of spectacular golf, a clubhouse with a signature restaurant, an expertly appointed practice facility, dramatic architecture, and a stunning natural seaside setting.
