With two Tom Fazio-designed courses, the Ocean North and Ocean South, The Resort at Pelican Hill offers 36 holes of world-class golf. Every hole is sympathetically designed with the natural beauty of the landscape in mind, but this doesn't make them any less challenging. The Pacific Ocean is king on both courses, with so many holes hitting into a sparkling blue backdrop. Post round, golfers can grab a drink and bite to eat at Pelican Grill, a scenic venue with views stretching beyond the Newport coast.
Spa & Wellness
The Spa at Pelican Hill's three stated goals are to 'relax, replenish and invigorate' guests through dedicated, personalised service. The award-winning venue houses 22 treatment rooms, relaxation lounges, wellness classes and a fitness centre with personal trainers. A host of innovative retreats and packages are on offer, including serene water experience areas with Roman soaking pools, a herbal steam room and sauna. The spa's tasty cuisine comprises fresh, seasonal fare, created mindfully to be delicious while promoting long-term healthy eating habits.
Golfing skills can be honed with the help of Glenn Deck and his expert team of PGA Professionals at the resort's impressive golf academy. For players of all ages and abilities, the academy provides bespoke advice centred on, not only improving technique, but also mental focus. Body assessments are provided to analyse individual posture and weight transfer, ensuring golfers maintain the correct balance. In addition, the Golf and Flexibility & Stability Clinic aims to improve range of motion, stability and overall execution.
