Monarch Bay Golf Club
a good public course on bay shore
decent layout, not bad greens, good bay view, a couple of holes with tree line, many holes with strong bay wind and somewhat challenge.

Excellent Course but missing directions
Course is maintained very well but I would suggest following
1. There are places hole direction missing. Since I was playing first time, it was hard to find some holes.
2. There are long grass and weeds everywhere. Hard to find balls if they bounce out of fairway

Course in great shape
Great course. Good pace of play. Sometimes the pace can be slow, but this time was excellent. Very scenic. It's always fun to spot the resident fox who lives on the course.

Monarch Bay is an excellent course. The greens were in excellent condition, rolling smooth and fairly quick, the fairways and rough were in great shape and the tee boxes were level throughout. The sand-traps were fairly hard but that was the only part of course not in great condition.
The afternoon became windy, normal being the location is right on the San Francisco Bay. Enjoyed the round and the Fox that came up to us at the 12th tee box was very cool as well.

I'm from O.C., so this was windy for me. I'd say we faced gusts to 25 mph. I had to club up three clubs on a few holes. At least it was a steady direction coming off the water. The course itself was in great shape with a few mushy areas. The greens were pretty smooth, but you had to calculate the effect on the wind as well as slope and speed. Bunkering was a little on the challenging side. Sand in the bunkers was good in some, sparse on others. Tee boxes were kinda shabby. Fairways were very good. Overall it was hard to score well, but it made for a creative day of links golf. I had a great time.

The sand in some of the bunkers was like cement. Pace of play was slow, we had to wait at every tee box for the group ahead to tee off who in turn were waiting for the group ahead of them.
No cart service on the course on a busy Friday.

Good fairways & good condition overall. The view of the bay is quite nice as well.
I like the driving range in comparison to what it once was.

Challenging course, in excellent shape. If you enjoy views of the bay then this is the course for you. After a bad shot just look to your left or right at the ocean and regroup.
