This course is a perfect example of the cliché “more than meets the eye”. Why, at a little over 6,500 yards, the Ocean South Course on the Pelican Hill Golf Club feels and plays longer than it is. And larger at that too! It is quite a mystery how Tom Fazio has created something that has so much for something average in size. Golfers must expect, too, for their golf trips hereabouts to be more than what they would or could ever expect.
The Ocean South Course has recently undergone a massive revamping, and it is now twice as perfect as when Tom Fazio first created it to be. Fazio’s remodeling of his own work created a spectacle that has features that will most likely take golfers on a rollercoaster ride of textures and difficulties. The course moves from greens to trees to magnificent floral gardens of various hues to the beach. And all the way and through it, there is an unending and unmatched view of the ocean nearby – a breathtaking backdrop to a rather challenging feat of surviving the 18-holes of this course in a neat scorecard. All that standing side by side in this medium sized golf course. For a golf course to end up as exquisite as this golf vacation destination is a massive feat that would take a genius to achieve. Tom Fazio is, hands down.
Fazio’s genius and the course’s naturally beautiful setting could only be complemented by amenities in no lesser way. Just as perfect, the services and facilities including pro shop and excellent 19th hole in the form of the Pelican Grill complete the golf vacation package. Ocean South Course is no cliché; it’s just plain perfect.
