I played with Matt Mpisarski01 on Saturday the 1st of April. Having bought this for Matt as a Christmas present it was a real treat to play the Pelican South Course. Having said that the course was not going to give me an easy day. We warmed up on the practice range on the turf with our caddie Eddie watching our last few shots. It is quite different playing with a caddie. It took me a while to believe him and do what he suggested(I should have listened to his advise more). The greens were fast yet soft to take a long iron shot. I actually plugged a 5 iron onto the 11th green. The fairways were as expected this time of year green but still coming out of dormancy. They were cut short with a narrow first cut of rough and then 6″ was not out of the question. I had several shots that I could only hit it back into the fairway a few yards from the deep rough. It made keeping the ball in the fairway a must. Once on the greens they played very fast and the subtle reads were hard for me to believe even with the help of Eddie our caddie (I should have listened to him).
The views and weather here on the Newport Coast are unbelievable. Pelican is a true resort course right here in our own back yard. I would love to play again if I can get a part time job to cover the green fees. If you get the opportunity to play the Pelican Hills take it and enjoy.
