Pelican Marsh Golf Club

The Pelican Marsh Golf Club was designed by world-renowned architect Robert von Hagge to reflect his passion for great golf. His appreciation of pristine, natural settings can be seen throughout the design process as well as on each hole of the par 72 course that spans 7,171 yards.

You’ll be surprised by how different each hole feels as this course has significant elevation changes. You can take it easy with the generous landing areas, or you can let loose on the Tif Eagle greens that will challenge your abilities to land smoothly and accurately. The championship course has 18 individual holes consisting of challenges specifically designed for a broad spectrum of players so there’s never any worry about being bored.

Pelican Marsh is also one of 112 courses in Florida to be designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. One thing you will find out about Pelican Marsh and its staff is the unmatched dedication to protecting wildlife habitat and water quality, making it a perfect place for anyone who’s passionate about helping the environment.
