Monarch Beach Golf Links

“Come for the View, Stay for the Golf, Join for the People” Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence at Orange County’s iconic Monarch Beach Golf Links

Nestled in the picturesque shadow of the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort, Monarch Beach Golf Links (MBGL) has been an iconic destination for golf enthusiasts since 1983. Renowned for its breathtaking ocean views and genuine coastal service, this Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed resort golf course continues to deliver a memorable golf experience on the Pacific Coast in Dana Point, CA. Monarch was Orange County’s first experiential daily fee golf club, and it continues to rank as one of California’s most popular and highest rated golf destinations. 

Monarch Beach Golf Links stands out not only for its scenic beauty (some say you can see the ocean from all 18 holes), superb conditions, and nationally recognized service, but also for its unwavering commitment to the community. The club hosts numerous golf events throughout the year and its charitable efforts have helped raise millions for local Orange County charities. The club is especially altruistic with its efforts to support, sponsor and host military charitable initiatives, such as the Southern California PGA of America’s PGA HOPE annual fundraiser as well as the Southern California Chapter of Folds of Honor. 

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans and Active-Duty Military to enhance their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being.  Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization that helps provide the families of fallen and disabled service members and first responders educational scholarships. These events are just a few of the highlights of Monarch’s dedication to giving back and making a positive impact in Southern California.

Monarch’s PGA trained and certified staff is led by Eric Lohman, PGA General Manager who just also happens to be the current President of the Southern California Section of the PGA of America. The club’s PGA golf professionals help bring expertise, passion, and a welcoming spirit to every guest of the Golf Links.

One can join MBGL’s community through one of its various membership options, including the Links Card, WAMBR Resort Annual Membership, and the At Ease 9FORE9 Pass, each offering unique benefits tailored to different golfer’s needs. 

For those looking to enhance their experience, the resort offers overnight golf packages that make for a very special visit to the Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond rated ocean view luxury hotel. Innovative offerings like GolfBoards, Waterman Forecaddies, and on course Golf Coaching add a modern twist to the traditional game, providing fun and unique ways to navigate the course. We encourage you to see how this beauty has aged after 40 years of excellence, where the view is just the beginning of Monarch Beach Golf Links unforgettable journey.
