DANA POINT, CA — Few golf experiences can match the blend of stunning natural beauty and variety of challenges presented at Monarch Beach Golf Links. Here, along the dramatic bluffs of Southern California, master architect, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., has fashioned an intriguing layout in the Scottish links tradition on one of the select few oceanfront golf courses in California. Commanding sweeping views to the sea, this par-70 championship course offers an unending variety of play.
Cooled by the ocean breezes in summer and blessed with a mild year-round climate, Monarch Beach Golf Links is an ideal golf destination. Tight fairways and small undulating greens make the course an enjoyable challenge for all levels of play. PGA Pro Tom Watson, who competed in the 2001 Hyundai Team Matches with top tour leaders from the PGA, LPGA and Senior PGA circuits, compared the greens to those at Augusta National.
