Pelican Lakes Resort and Golf will celebrate its 25th anniversary this July and features 27 holes of golf – the 18-hole Pelican Lakes Course and the 9-hole Pelican Falls Course. Designed by Ted Robinson Sr., Pelican Lakes has it all – water, native wildlife, and an extremely challenging layout thanks to 300-plus surface acres of water. The beautiful Cache la Poudre River snakes its way through the entire 7,264-yard, par-72 course and four man-made lakes surround the perimeter, combining to provide the most shoreline of any golf course in the United States. The par-34 Pelican Falls course was designed by Mike Hines and has 200-feet of elevation change throughout. The course features Colorado’s largest man-made water feature and a one-of-a kind island green on the ninth hole.

“Our collaboration with Troon is a reflection of our unwavering dedication to excellence and our desire to continually enhance the golfing experience for our members and guests,” said The Water Valley Company’s President of Hospitality and Leisure Tyler Lind. “This partnership underscores our commitment to delivering premier services and cultivating a legacy of distinction in the golf community.”

“We’re honored to be working with The Water Valley Company and their courses Pelican Lakes and RainDance National,” said Troon Vice President of Operations Mike Conner. “Our focus is to assist the teams with enhanced operational proficiency, dynamic marketing strategies, increased brand recognition, and advanced management methodologies.”
