Pelican Point’s premiere facility, The Links course, is a par 72 measuring over 6,900 from the back tees. The Link's golf course opened in 1998 and winds through the prestigious Pelican Point Golf Community. With generous fairways, large greens, and five sets of tees, the course is very playable for any skilled golfer. The putting surface, Champions Bermuda greens, is the latest in turf technology offering tour quality greens year round. The finishing holes 16, 17, and 18 provide for a dramatic ending to a round of golf.

 The Lakes course opened in 2002 is a par 71 and measures a little over 6,500 from its championship tees. With doglegs shaped by trees and mounds, this course requires patience and accuracy off the tee box. The putting surface offer difficult pin placements and Champions Bermuda grass, which provide for a superb putting surface. Challenging recovery shots and bump and runs are common for the wayward iron shot.
