Where Everybody Knows Your Name
T’S EASY TO SEE WHY golfers at The Resort at Pelican Hill® feel as if they belong to a private club. The genteel hush upon arriving, the gracious greeting by staff members, the swift, seamless transfer of bag to cart, and the gleaming baskets of dimpled range balls speak volumes about the Resort’s respect for the game and its players.
For participants in Pelican Hill Golf Club’s 12-month-long Preferred Program, that experience is heightened by the relationships that form between players and staff. If a participant favors the Ocean North over the Ocean South Course, the pro shop, cart attendants and starters know it. If a player likes to keep an extra towel on hand, she will find it, folded and waiting, in the cart. And, if I generally start my round with a good luck bloody mary with an extra splash of Tabasco, then that is exactly what will be delivered. (I might even pair it with the Bump-and-Run burrito special from the course’s Caffè II.)
The Preferred Program, which operates on a 365- day, rather than calendar, basis, also rewards golfers with generous discounts on greens fees. For an annual enrollment of $700, players have unlimited access to both courses for $205 per round, a savings of $115 over the standard rate. They can invite up to three guests per round at the reduced rate of $235 per person.
