Gill and I played at Pelican in 2011. we were across on the west coast for a conference and some meetings, and took some time to see the area.
Here’s a link to the Club.
The course is great, and the set up including club house etc really fantastic. Classic big bucks real estate venture. I loved it. We played the Ocean North Course which has spectacular views.
We stayed at the Hyatt at Huntington beach. Nice hotel: one slight problem. The beach views rooms do look onto the beach, but there’s a highway between you and it.
