COURSE OF THE MONTH: Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point

When you consider its superlative location, top-notch conditioning and its proximity to the AAA Five-Diamond St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, it’s easy to see why Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point ranks among the finest golf experiences in Southern California. The par-70 Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course opened in 1983, and has evolved alongside the resort into a world-class golf destination. Recently rejuvenated by the golf course management company OB Sports, the service, conditioning and overall experience have never been better. One thing that hasn’t changed is its location, which features some great scenery – two holes are on the ocean, several others offer ocean views and four lakes bring water into play on eight other holes. Another constant is Jones’ layout, a links-style design that features tight fairways and small, undulating greens. The course’s combination of strategy and natural splendor is ideal for anything from a round of golf with a buddy to part of a multi-day stay at one of the finest golf resorts in North America.
