Monarch Beach Golf Links is proud to offer an exemplary Forecaddie Program called our “Waterman Forecaddies to enhance your golf experience.  Think of this program as your personal Golf Concierge and Surf Buddy!!! You can enjoy the expertise and assistance of professional forecaddies as you play Robert Trent Jones' golf course. Each Waterman has received intensive training, learning the nuances of our beautifully crafted oceanfront course along with all things Salt Creek Beach and Monarch Bay. We're confident you'll discover that we have one of the finest and most unique Forecaddie Programs in the world.
