Pelican LPGA Tournament

The Pelican Women's Championship

The Pelican Women's Championship is a Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA ) tournament held annually at the Pelican Golf Club in Belleair. The Pelican Golf Club has hired Outlyr (a professional event company) to manage this event. While the Town of Belleair is involved with permitting, public safety, and communications, this is not a town-sponsored event.

As a part of the required permitting process, the Pelican Women's Championship must apply to the Town of Belleair Commission for a Major Event Special Relief Permit each year. Public input is encouraged at both Commission hearings on the event. The Town and Outlyr also work closely with an LPGA Ad Hoc Committee comprised of Belleair residents in order to ensure this event has the best interest of Belleair's residents in mind.
