For those who find the $125 mid-week greens fees at Pelican Hill Golf Club a bit daunting but still want a taste of golf's good life, an answer is at hand. At a fraction of the cost, you can hit balls, chip or putt at the course's practice center. The center, which has been open nearly a year, is available to everyone, even those who don't play one of the two 18-hole resort courses.

It's not hard to understand why a golfer would pay $100 to play the Ocean Course at Pelican Hill Golf Club once. After all, everybody deserves to be a big shot for a day. Courteous young men take your clubs out of the trunk and park your car. You can see the ocean from every one of Tom Fazio's dramatic holes, carved into the canyons and bluffs north of Crystal Cove. And it's not only beautiful, it's fun. The par-70, 6,634-yard layout is challenging but playable. This is no Pebble Beach.

Pelican Hill Golf Club, thanks to its location overlooking the Pacific Ocean along the Newport Coast, has been called "Pebble Beach South." Such remarks are usually made in promotional copy aimed at luring golfers to one of the two courses that sit on the bluffs above Crystal Cove State Park. Rob Ford, director of golf at Pelican Hill, knows the idea of such comparisons makes purists cringe. "The thing we just don't have," Ford said, "is the rich tournament history of Pebble Beach."

Nancy Gardner started riding horses on the beach and bluffs south of her home in Corona del Mar before there was any development on what was then called the Irvine Coast. It was the mid-1950s, and Gardner clearly remembers the dry canyons that cut through the cliffs of what is now Crystal Cove State Park. So when Gardner walked along the base of the cliffs as a member of the Surfrider Foundation during the spring of 1992, she was surprised to see a waterfall.

It was only the fourth hole, so Richard Kim thought it was too soon to judge whether Pelican Hill was a spectator-friendly course. But by the seventh hole of the Hyundai Team Matches, Kim and his mother, Elizabeth, were ready to make a call. Elizabeth Kim was able to reach the seventh tee only by hanging onto the back of her son's fanny pack as she trudged up the hill from the sixth green. "You saw her pooping out," said an out-of-breath Richard Kim, of Fullerton. "I think I'm almost there too."

Pelican Hill Golf Course in Newport Beach was fined $148,000 Friday for illegally discharging recycled water into the ocean off Crystal Cove, state water officials said. "Environmentally, it probably didn't have that much effect, but it's very serious due to the magnitude of the discharges, the fact they weren't reported and they were repeated," said Kurt Berchtold, assistant executive officer of the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board.

As the yellow John Deere earthmover takes another swipe at what will be the seventh fairway of the Pelican Hill Links course, it's hard to link this vision of wounded earth with pastoral images of golf. The earthmover, a "scraper" in construction lingo, is roughly shaping the fairway, which will split in half to give golfers a choice of paths to the green. With each pass, the scraper takes a bite that lowers the fairway and leaves symmetrical scars.
