Pelican Golf Club, formerly known as Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, underwent major renovations to upgrade its facilities after the purchase by Dan Doyle Sr. and Dan Doyle Jr. was completed in 2017. Originally designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1925, The Beau Welling Design group oversaw the renovation project, re-establishing the stylistic elements of a golden age golf course.
“We are honored to welcome the finest golfers in the world to our championship course to experience its world-class amenities and unmatched golf experience,” said Dan Doyle Jr., President and CEO of DEX Imaging, and co-owner of Pelican Golf Club. “When we began this renovation, we did so with the goal to welcome the best players in professional golf to Pelican and we’re excited to watch them compete for $1.5 million in prize money.”
As previously announced, due to the ongoing health crisis, the tournament will be played without fans in attendance. For more information, including television broadcast windows and corporate sponsorship opportunities, visit www.PelicanLPGA.com.
