Highly attractive values are available at the Venice real estate market with the high inventory of properties created by the pervasive economic difficulties. A lot of acquisition opportunities can be availed of even at prime properties like those at the Pelican Pointe Country Club real estate development. Here's a quick look.
A master plan was implemented in converting this 100-acre property into a complex composed 1,355 home sites and villas nestled with an environment-friendly golf course. Over half of the enclave has been devoted to natural preserves and recreational facilities.
A magnificent clubhouse, sprawling with its 22,000 square feet of floor space, is host to excellent dining facilities hailed as No. 1 in the Readers Choice Awards survey of local newspapers.
The hum of social functions and events that abound in the clubhouse is matched in the activities that can be pursued at Pelican Pointe's various sports facilities. Available to members are a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, two Har-Tru tennis courts, and a modern gym complete with large-screen TV monitors.
Golf is even made more exciting in Pelican Pointe's championship golf course, a 27-hole layout designed by the respected course architect Ted McAnlis. The links has three nine-hole layouts from which the 18-hole combination that suits a golfer's particular ability can be chosen. Quite favorable to most golfers, there are no parallel fairways along the entire course that can be a distraction to play.
Hence, smooth play can proceed in the course that runs for 5,326 yards from the nearest tees to 7,182 yards from the farthest tee markers. Measured in USGA standards, the layout has a course rating from 66.9 to 74.5. There are ample supplementary golf facilities at Pelican Pointe, including putting, pitching, and chipping greens, in addition to a driving range and a practice area for bunker play. Underscoring the links' popularity, Pelican Pointe has been consistently rated as No. 1 in publication surveys on Readers Choices for golf during the past 10 years.
