Played in an SCGA outing. The cost to walk on and play is $320 which includes a forecaddie for the foursome. The outing cost $160 without a forecaddie. A big part of what the golfer is paying for is service. Valet parking, carrying bags from car to cart, locker rooms with showers, etc. I had not played the North Course so for the much reduced cost I thought I would give it a play. Rather than a shotgun the outing was set up with tee times ranging from 7am through 12:30. The tee times were 10 minutes apart and the round took just about 5 hours teeing off about 11:00am.
I found the layout to be enjoyable. Reasonably wide off the tee but stray to far and your ball is in the bush. There are some carries from tee to fairway. The terrain is rolling to hilly but nothing extreme. The greens were in good condition rolling medium/fast and held shots. The greens had subtle slops/breaks that can be difficult to read. The fairways were very good. I Did not have a bad lie all day. The rough was not too long but the ball did sit down a bit. The rough coverage was mostly good with some thin/bare spots. The bunkers (I was in a few) were mostly good. One greenside bunker was more like chunky dirt than sand. The tee boxes were fairly level and in good condition. The North Course does not have any holes right on the coast but it provides plenty of nice coastal views.
The course has nice facilities all the way around. The staff was welcoming and very friendly. For me it was worth paying $160 to play the course. I don't know that I would pay it to play the course again. $320 even with a forecaddie, not so much. Pelican Hill Resort has two solid courses, good service, and nice amenities. Value for the price depends on the individual.» Close

Played Wednesday, 5/31. Teed off at 7:15 and finished in 3h 35min as a twosome. Thanks to the two 5somes that let us play through on holes 5 and 8. After that smooth sailing to the finish. The greens were in good condition running medium/fast speed and held shots. A two foot wide area around the greens were roped off due to pesticide application. There openings in the ropes for golfers to walk onto the green. The ropes didn't really affect play other than visual. I do not know how long the ropes will remain in place. The fairways were in good condition.The rough was low and did have some thin/bare spots but was overall good. The bunkers were in good condition including the fairway bunkers. The tee boxes were mostly good with some minor unlevelness. Skylinks is an enjoyable course that plays mostly straight forward. The green complexes provide the biggest challenge for the course. The staff was friendly.» Close

Played Wednesday teed off at 6:50am finished in 3:50. The greens are in good condition with the exception of #1 which had what appeared to be some type of fungus. The greens rolled good with medium/fast speed and they played a little firm. The fairways were in good condition with only #16 having some patchy areas. The rough was mostly good with some thin/bare spots. The bunkers were good but always a bit wet early in the morning. The tee boxes were good with a few having mildly unlevel spots. Its an enjoyable track to play. Mostly straight forward with large tree lined fairways. Water comes into play on a few holes. The greens are pitched primarily back to front with some being a little elevated. The staff is friendly.» Close

Played late Wednesday morning and it took over 5 hours to play (usually takes around 4:40). The greens rolled good and held shots with medium speed. The fairways have good coverage and areas that are typically thin have filled in nice thanks to winter rains. The rough is good with some thin/bare spots. The bunkers are fair to good depending on how compacted they are due to moister. The tee boxes are fair to good due to mild unlevelness and were the markers are placed. The layout is flat but has nice variety. Although water comes into play on several holes the greens are the real challenge to the course. Especially if the greens are rolling fast. The staff is friendly.» Close

Teed off Thursday, 4/20, at 9:45 finishing in 4.5 hrs. I thing the course maintenance crew had Easter week off. The greens had very little signs of aeration a few weeks prior but they had not been mowed recently. They were shaggy and bumpy. Once the greens are mowed they should be in good shape. The fairways, other than being a little long, had good coverage. The rains earlier this year have helped areas that are normally a little thin grow in nicely. The rough was in good condition with a few thin/bare spots. The bunkers are very compacted (I was in three greenside). The tee boxes are fair to good due to mild unlevelness. I enjoy the varied layout of the Destroyer course. Water comes into play on several holes. The staff is friendly.
