This year GreensKeeper.org awards Pelican Hill Golf Club Best Playing Conditions 2019 for Orange County California.
Not to be confused with “Worth the Green Fee,” “Best Playing Conditions” is awarded to golf courses open to the public listed on Greenskeeper.org that stand out above the rest with our site users at providing consistently the best greens, fairways, rough, tee boxes and bunkers around.
The job of the superintendent is the life blood of the golf course and most important contributing factor to enjoying a golf experience. A golf course is a living, breathing organism whose health is constantly in flux. It takes enormous dedication, resources and expertise by a superintendent and their staff to provide excellent turf conditions.
The rating system used on Greenskeeper.org is in part created by superintendents. GreensKeeper.org’s trademark and creed, “Know Before You Go”®, centers on communicating these current playing conditions.
How Awards Winners Are Determined
Golf Course reviews and ratings submitted by our 78,000+ Greenskeeper.org community are tabulated over 12 months. Winners are determined for each area.
We divide awards into 11 sections — Inland Empire, Los Angeles County, Orange County, Palm Springs Area, San Diego County, Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Southern California, Central California, Northern California and Southern Nevada.

Played Pelican Hill North with my dad on Labor Day with the Labor Day email special. Course was in excellent condition and the greens were fantastic. Staff was great. Started on time and finished in less than 4 hours. Overall, a great experience and would play here again.

Played last Saturday. My first time playing here, and wow! The place is great! I loved everything about it! Now I was lucky enough to have an inside hookup that got me out for $125, I’m not sure how I’d feel if I paid the regular rate, but when I was thinking about it later, I felt that this may be in the top 3 courses I’ve played in the LA/Desert area.
Pelican was better than the Riviera, primarily in layout, they compared with course conditions. LACC was better in both layout and conditions. Yeah, I’d say Pelican may be the 2nd best place to play in LA/Desert area. The south course is lower and cuts closer to the beach. One hold has you right up over the shoreline in fact. The layout was quite varied I thought, with a meandering path throughout the resort, with few holes lined up together. The service was outstanding, I even had my car washed. I ate lunch too, that was also great, and a bunch of my friends loved the pool. I’d love to play golf here again, if I can get a deal, or feel like splurging.
