The 36 holes at Pelican's Nest offer some of the finest public-facility golf in the country. The 416-yard ninth on the Gator nine (the last of four nines built by Tom Fazio and opened in 1993) winds through heavily wooded, gently contoured land.

At 3,558 yards, the Gator nine is the lengthiest of the four nines here. Hurricane measures 3,458 yards while the Panther comes in at 3,461 yards. The Seminole nine is 3,518 yards.
