Monarch Bay Golf Club
Nice links-feel and decent course conditions
We played in the afternoon with steady 15-20 mph winds. It felt like our own little Open Championship. Like a true links course, you need to be mindful of your angles. Bogeys happen quickly when you are playing downwind, over a bunker to an elevated green! Greens were a bit bumpy, but that's to be expected with Poa in the afternoon. Medium fast greens. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience even though our play could have been better. Careful of the fox families. They will steal food from your cart and they aren't afraid of humans at all.

Near perfect fairways to Hit off. Very few divots even with the amount of daily. 6:28 tee time, first 2 greens putted slow than as they dried, the speed picked up.
2 varieties of grass on putting surface made for some bouncy putts but livable.
Starter is super cool everytime I play here. It's great when a Staff values and respects the Customers.

All the staff were very friendly and the cashier threw in lunch and drinks which were not included I thought. Course was in good shape considering the drought and will be back soon. The deli staff were very accommodating with the food order. I would have to credit a lot of this to the course management who obviously emphasize customer relations if you want golfers to come back.

Good course with nice views.
Good course with nice views of the Bay. Only negative observation is that the sand bunkers were like concrete. They need to add sand and tend to them a lot more.
A concession cart would be a nice addition as well.

worst pace of play in area
Could be great - but rangers are ineffective and many patrons are oblivious to the concept of time.

Sod Replacement Project
