The Resort at Pelican Hill is the Irvine Co.'s magnum opus of luxury in Newport Beach—a place purposely designed to give competitors like the St. Regis a run for their money and the rest of us a reason to work harder for ours. At Pelican Grill, its restaurant, expensive cars are lined up like trophies. Inside, there's a show kitchen worthy of Iron Chef America and a dining room populated with couture-wearing socialites. Out on the al fresco terrace, an elevated view of the shimmering Pacific makes you contemplate the world and your place in it. And, oh yeah, the food's good, too. The Newport Beach resort boasts two Tom Fazio-designed (and -revamped) courses—Ocean North and Ocean South—that have drawn comparisons to Pebble Beach because of their beauty and magnificent ocean views. Of the pair, the North Course is the more wide-open, less difficult and most scenic. There are spectacular ocean views from every tee on the 7,000-yard, par 71 course. And the land surrounding the course is not lined with the cottages you'll find at other world-class golf destinations.
