easy mid-morning round

Walked it in under 4 hours on a Thursday morning and that included waiting on the last 4 holes. Was breezy for the whole round. Greens weren’t quick but very even and smooth.

Beautiful ocean view and cool summer day

Pretty interesting course with beautiful ocean view. The only complaint I have is that we had to wait a long time for 2 par 3s - #7, # 17. They were two groups on the tee box at #7, and there were 3 groups waiting on #17. We ended up did not finish our round. I think it would be great if we can have a marshal to help out - have people mark their ball, and let next group to hit before finishing putting

Done with Monarch

This course has a lot of potential but every experience I’ve had has been awful. First time here I was hit by an errant shot (in the hand)...this most recent time I had my putter headcover stolen when I left my clubs outside the bathroom...the layout is interesting but I’m just done with trying to give this place a chance. Save yourself the 5 1/2 hour rounds and go elsewhere.

Solid Saturday Session

Reasonable priced and great staff members. Came here as a single at a 7am tee time. From the driving range grass to the fairways, this place takes pride in their grooming. Everything was well kept. Once you play the back 9 there is a level of odor that is coming from a nearby facility, but the smell is short lived as you distance yourself towards the backside. Otherwise, this place doesn’t disappoint.

Nice greens.

Overall nice course greens are
In very good condition. The fairways are just ok with many uneven patch’s of grass. By nature a windy course.

Greens were punched nearly a month ago and have healed nicely. Course is in good shape. Played super fast, walked and finished slightly under 4 hours. Great day

Only play if you have 5 and half hours to spare

Course is decent, although you’ll be playing at snails pace. Gave up after 9 holes, and this is on Wednesday, not even a weekend

Challenge in wind

Greens are awesome. Windy is almost unfair because holes playing North to South are getting pushed left, the OB line is just off the fairway and the wind pushes it that way. 3 times in drove in the fairway to have it trickle of into the OB . Found the balls with beautiful lie , but OB and 2 shot penalty.
