Top executive: Steve Friedlander, vice president of golf
Pelican Hill Golf Club has set a new standard for green courses. During the development of the Pelican Hill Resort, the Irvine Co. Resort Properties installed a water-management system that conserves more than 50 million gallons annually. The site has a full-time water quality manager who monitors the facility, which reduces the amount of debris and contaminants that go into the storm drain while also recycling dry-season runoff instead of letting it enter the ocean at nearby Crystal Cove State Park.
The Pelican Hill Golf Club’s commitment to helping to conserve water and protect the Pacific Ocean has earned it national accolades, such as receiving Golf Magazine’s 2012 Green Hall of Fame Award.
“As stewards of one of California’s most beautiful stretches of coastal land, we’re proud to be part of Orange County’s Green Team,” says Steve Friedlander, vice president of golf for Pelican Hill. “In developing and later renovating Pelican Hill’s two coastal courses, we have gone to unprecedented lengths to design infrastructure and implement protocol that advance environmental stewardship, recycling and sustainability.”
