Southern California’s Top-Ranked, Five-Star Resort Offers Grand Prize Package Valued at $50,000 for Favorite Pelican Hill Memories Anniversary Contest

 During the five years since The Resort at Pelican Hill® opened its doors, its staff of nearly 1,000 hospitality professionals have served 2.4 million meals, cleaned 20 million pounds of laundry and valet parked nearly a half-million vehicles. Guests from near and far have hit 99 million golf balls on Pelican Hill’s two ocean-view courses, savored 13,000 gallons of gelato churned in the Resort’s “gelato laboratory” and indulged in more than 70,000 massages and body treatments at The Spa at Pelican Hill®.

“As a Five-Star destination designed to serve the world’s most discerning travelers, Pelican Hill treasures the privilege of creating so many unforgettable guest memories through gracious, thoughtful and personalized services and amenities,” said Pelican Hill Managing Director Giuseppe Lama. “We will mark the Resort’s five-year milestone by launching our search for a $50,000 memory.”

On its fifth anniversary date of November 26, 2013, the Resort launches a year-long Favorite Pelican Hill Memories Anniversary Contest, inviting guests to submit their favorite Pelican Hill photos and stories online at An online Pinterest board will display guests’ memories, which are eligible to win a monthly prize valued at $500. Monthly memory winners also earn a chance to win a Grand Prize package valued at $50,000 when the contest concludes in late November 2014.

As the Favorite Pelican Hill Memories Anniversary Contest begins, the Resort also unveils a new website with enhanced design for the mobile Internet and touch-screen devices. The Resort’s redesigned website will feature enhanced imagery and interactivity with more photography and video, as well as improved screen utilization for multiple screen sizes, from mobile devices to larger monitors.
