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.

Walk directly from the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club along our golf course, stop at the Monarch Café to enjoy a light bite, then continue along the path that hugs the pacific ocean towards Salt Creek Beach to loop back around through Sea Terrace Park to the Resort. A great way to stretch the legs while enjoying the SoCal lifestyle.
