PELICAN GOLF CLUB

Pelican Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course designed with inspiration from Donald Ross' original layout, plays to a par 70 and nearly 7,000 yards. Pelican Golf Club features lush greenery, undulating terrain, and crushed quartz sand. Every detail has been artfully designed and planned to perfection.

Although the course is rooted in the beauty of old-world courses of the past, its infrastructure is state of the art. It features manicured fairways and uninterrupted rough with greens and tees maintained at the highest levels.

Veterans Day programming

On Friday, November 11, 2022, the Veterans Day celebration will honor the men and women who have served and are serving our country.

Last year, the tournament hosted Lieutenant Dan O’Shea to speak to the attendees. Patrons, players, caddies, members, and tournament staff were provided with American Flag pins to wear. Caddies wore special blue camouflage bibs in honor of Veterans Day.

On Hole 12, members of the military tended to an American Flag pin flag for players. All military (active, reserve, retired and veterans) plus one will receive complimentary admission to the 2022 Pelican Women’s Championship by showing proper identification at Admissions in exchange for a daily grounds pass. Military and their plus one also will have access to the Hero Outpost, an exclusive covered viewing deck on the par-3 12th hole with complimentary snacks and beverages. 

BayCare Birdies for Babies program

The Pelican Women's Championship in partnership with BayCare Health Systems pledged to donate $50 for every birdie scored during all four (4) rounds of the 2021 event to BayCare's Morton Plant Mease Health Care Foundation and BayCare's Morton Plant Hospital Women's Services, located in the hospital's Doyle Tower.

The 108-player field in 2021 carded 1,369 total birdies as part of the "Birdies for Babies" charitable program, 437 more birdies then 2020! Pelican Women's Championship donated $68,450 to help provide home monitoring blood pressure kits for new mothers and expecting mothers who are at highest risk of developing complications.
