Where2Golf says: 

Pelican Point Golf Club (Links course): Located less than a mile from the Mississippi River and tucked in behind the Houmas House Plantation - Pelican Point comprises 36-holes split between the championship Links layout and the more compact, 6500 yard Lakes course - with its own clubhouse, the relatively open, nicely mounded, and less house-lined Lakes course is open for public play at most times - the longer, more challenging Links course is slightly more restricted for visitors, but still accessible - on the Links course, you'll find a pleasantly testing layout that weaves its way around several small ponds and through the Pelican Point residential community - in a predominantly open environment, with housing often on both sides of each hole, the fairways are generally good-width and bordered by a generous band of not overly penal, mounded rough - the flattish terrain leads you to excellent quality, large and significantly sloping greens, often defended by round, dish-shaped bunkers, both large and small - staying out of the frequently threatening water hazards and excellent bunkering is key to scoring well - contrasting with much of the course, the par-3 17th and gently-doglegging par-4 18th are played in a wonderfully natural, tree-lined setting - as a visitor (rather than Pelican Point home-owner), you may be left wondering why more of the layout could not have benefitted from this more natural routing.

Did you know?

A mile from Pelican Point, on the banks of the Mississippi, you can discover Houmas House Plantation, one of the South's oldest and most beautiful plantation estates. The mansion house, award-winning gardens, wine cellars, Latil's Landing Restaurant and Cafe Burnside are all open to the public. The plantation's first owners were the indigenous Houmas Indians, who sold the land to Maurice Conway and Alexander Latil in the mid 1700s. The original French Provincial house that Latil erected is still situated directly behind the Mansion, known in its antebellum heyday as the "The Sugar Palace." In the late 1800s Houmas House was the largest sugar producer in the country, producing over 20 million pounds of sugar each year.
