Newport Coast, California
A perfectly oval salt-water swimming pool, its floor comprised of over a million hand-cut glass mosaic tiles, serves as the centerpiece for the relaxed luxury of Pelican Hill. Set on the Newport Coast, the resort radiates an ambiance of elegance and style, highlighted by its California-accented Italian Renaissance architecture. There are two bold Tom Fazio golf courses, both with holes that trace the gracefully sloping Southern California hillsides and dramatically buttress against the Pacific Ocean. Golfers should bring their "A" games to these challenging courses, although Top 100 teacher Glenn Deck is on hand at the Gold Academy to help all players better shape their swings. The 204 bungalows and 128 villas on the property are all situated with ocean views. Three sumptuous eateries, including a Tuscan-influenced fine dining experience at Andrea's, satiate the taste buds. Indeed, it is easy to understand why Pelican Hill was selected as the #1 golf resort in California last year.
