Ocean South is a flow of contrasts: from brush gardens framed by sage and eucalyptus trees to the greens dropped at every side by deep chasms. The sheer variety of vegetation on the South Course makes playing it quite the experience surrounded by appealing hints at florals and the ocean as they breeze through the course. Several holes permit 270 degree views of the vast Pacific, with the sight of seabirds and sailboats guiding the fresh ocean breeze. As enjoyable to play as it is beautiful, this is one of the most pure exaltations of Fazio’s design philosophy.
The fundamentals of golf may not vary, but the way you experience the game certainly can. Tom Fazio designed our 54 holes of golf, including Pelican Hill’s 36 championship holes on our Ocean North and Ocean South courses and our 18 holes at nearby Oak Creek Golf Club®, to be unlike any that you’ve ever played before. To further enhance your game, add Pelican Hill’s unmatched service and amenities; professional forecaddies, luxurious locker rooms, practice facility, shoe attendants, club cleaning service, golf shop and golf academy.
