Monarch Bay Golf Club
The course was in pretty good conditions. Greens were rolling very well. I would play there again BUT the pace of play was pretty bad. The Marshal needs to drive around more or they need the tee times spread out a bit more. Overall good but once again the pace was the worst part

horrible pace of play. probably had to do with the fact that it was the saturday before the superbowl. tons of golfers trying to get 18 in before the superbowl. not going to golf on superbowl sunday. barely finished 18. seemed like the holes were log jammed all day. had to wait at almost every hole. the 4 some behind us was basically hitting the balls at our feet as we were driving away. we were hit our fairway shots, and their balls would already be flying at our feet. other than the pace, everything was great. great weather, great course, great value.

This course was fun! Played with two friends and met Michael. The pace of play was great. Greens are in very good shape. Don't hit your ball in the rough you won't be able to find. Beautiful scenery. Great price!

Great day at Monarch Bay
Bob manning the desk was hilarious! Good way to start the day before sunrise. You can 'upgrade' for a few more bucks to include two beverages (beer available), breakfast until 11 AM, and lunch. Couple that with a fun course and you end up on top of the world.
One bonus on the front nine was the beautiful fox we encountered just chilling near the tee box.

First Out and Last In
Signs in the Pro shop that if you have an early tee time you are required to play in 4 hours OR LESS. We were third out and the LEAD GROUP was terrible....on a five hour pace and holding up the whole course. Called in to the pro shop on the third hole to complain....but we waited on every shot. The second group got thorugh them but htey would not let us through and it was brutal...called and complained more but essentially the marshal was not willing to make them move it....BAD

The course is next to the bay
I would recommend that every golf play their one round at lease.

Played from the gold tees. Par 4 rs are long. Had to hit long irons into greens after a good drive. Greens are tough. A lot of break even on short putts but rolled true

Great Value! Big Bang for the Buck!
Came with free breakfast and lunch coupons with two beverages for around $55! Course was a bit muddy from the storm so had to take that in consideration. One of the longest public courses around from the tips (7k yards). With the wind, you will need luck for two holes for sure (one long par 4 and one long par 5). Pace was just ok due to cart path only (4 1/2 hours). Overall Great Value!!!
