Golf Enthusiasts Gain Value-Add At Three Premier Courses With Pelican Hill And Oak Creek 2011 Preferred Program

Pelican Hill Golf Club and Oak Creek Golf Club this week launched their 2011 Preferred Program for three premier courses in Newport Coast® and Irvine, California. Introducing enhanced privileges for golf enthusiasts who wish to indulge their passion for the game across 54 exceptional holes of Tom Fazio-designed golf, the 2011 Preferred Program features preferred access to tee-times and rates for members and their guests over an entire year (365 days from date activated) for Pelican Hill’s 18-hole Ocean North and 18-hole Ocean South courses, as well as Oak Creek’s 18-hole course.

“Over the past year, Southern California golf enthusiasts benefited from numerous Preferred Program perks and recognized great value to their golf experiences with us, time and time again,” said Steve Friedlander, PGA, General Manager of Pelican Hill Golf Club and Oak Creek Golf Club. “As we explored ways to improve the future Preferred Program offerings, we looked to our loyal Preferred Participants for their input and preferences, then enhanced our offering based on the insights gathered from those who treasure our Tom Fazio designed golf courses as much as we do.”

Pelican Hill Golf Club boasts 36 spectacular holes designed by Tom Fazio with stunning ocean panoramas from nearly every hole, a luxurious 44,000-square-foot clubhouse with separate men’s and women’s locker rooms and lounges with a full array of appointments and amenities, the acclaimed Pelican Grill and lounge, Caffé II Italian coffee bar, a golf shop, and an intelligently designed, full-service practice facility conveniently located right outside the clubhouse door featuring an expansive driving range, a complete practice tee and tour-event Nike Platinum One balls waiting for guests when they arrive.

The two 18-hole courses, Ocean North and Ocean South, are both on Golf Magazine’s 2008 list of the Top 20 Courses in California. Pelican Hill has also received recognition as Golf Digest’s “The World’s Greatest Golf 2009/2010,” Ocean South; Golfweek’s “Best Courses You Can Play” 2009 & 2010; and GolfWorld’s 2010 Reader’s Choice Awards “Top 50 Resorts.”

Oak Creek Golf Club, modeled on California’s historic missions with the Saddleback Mountains rising in the background, offers golfers all the time-honored traditions of the game enhanced by the very best of modern amenities. The 18-hole Par-71 Oak Creek course is a golfer’s sanctuary, designed by Tom Fazio, one of the country’s best course designers.
