The Pacific Riviera

Known as the "Pacific Riviera," the intimate Newport Coast fringes the shimmering Pacific Ocean between Corona Del Mar and Laguna Beach. Gorgeous landscapes abound in this prestigious community, and multiple nature trails wind throughout its carefully preserved open spaces. With an average of 340 days of sunshine per year, the weather is usually perfect for playing the area's two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses, cruising by luxury yacht from Newport Harbor, meandering among the art galleries of nearby Laguna Beach, or enjoying the prime surfing and sunbathing that Newport's spectacular Crystal Cove Beach offers.

More Golf Courses Per Capita Than Any Place In The World

  • Play a Trio of Fazio’s Masterworks

    Pelican Hill was named "#1 Golf Resort in the World" in 2012 by Conde Nast Traveler. Tom Fazio designed the Ocean North and Ocean South courses to take maximum advantage of the coastline’s natural canyons and cliffs. Though both feature steep drops, uneven slopes and sudden breaks, the courses offer very different experiences. Learn more about the courses of Pelican Hill.

    Ocean North

    Fazio designed the course to deliver stunning Pacific views for all 18 tee boxes. Desert flowers and eucalyptus blossom line the glistening fairways and greens, making for a masterful interplay of the organic and the designed.

    Ocean South

    Ocean South takes you through a wonderland of coastal flora fanned by ocean breeze and split by steep chasms. As beautiful as it is dramatic and challenging, several of this course's holes allow 270-degree views of the ocean.

    Oak Creek Golf Club

    Named for the rushing creek that winds through it, this Fazio-designed gem provides a dreamy day among lush fairways, pristine greens, peaceful lakes and bull-nose carved bunkers.
