A stylish Italianate property terraced into a broad slope high above the Pacific, Pelican Hill features a Thanksgiving Ballroom Brunch created by executive chef Jean-Pierre Dubray. Classic Thanksgiving dishes are accompanied by live entertainment and children’s activities. Before the big feast, golfers can tee it up on Ocean South, which features four holes routed on bluffs above a pristine beach favored by surfers; and Ocean North, its holes sprawled across a plateau creased by ravines 300 feet above the sea. These two Tom Fazio designs rank among the architect’s finest work.
