Legendary Orange County Golf

Designed by legendary golf architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the Monarch Beach Golf Links invites guests and members to play an exhilarating round of golf on its award-winning, 18-hole championship golf course.

Modeled in the traditional Scottish links style, and set along the peerless backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, this challenging 6,600-yard course features rolling greens and tight fairways to entice golfers of all skill levels. Monarch Beach Golf Links currently ranks “Best Places To Play” with 4.5 Stars (out of 5) by Golf Digest and #1 Best Golf Course in OC by Orange County Register for 2017. The course also features a “Top 100″ Golf Retail Shop, Men’s and Ladies Locker Rooms, and  Club 19 Restaurant and Grill, which showcases panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. We are also happy to arrange corporate events, charity tournaments, and golf outings for private groups.

Course Details

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. The course features two oceanfront holes and ocean views from the 16 others, as well as four shimmering water features which come into play on eight holes.

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.
