Monarch Dunes is Woodland's tribute to the origins and tradition of golf. Surrounded by windswept dunes and eucalyptus trees, coastal vistas and amber-colored hillsides, Monarch Dunes Golf Club is reminiscent of the true links-style courses found in Scotland and a must play for those who seek a challenging, yet amiable, unspoiled golf adventure. Monarch Dunes: Links to the traditions of golf.

The whole area is beautiful, and the 2 restaurants, in the club house and at the pro shop,which are open to the public, are very good. Lovely place!

I suggest that newbies play this course with someone who has played it previously as there are several blind shots and deceiving challenges. Bring extra balls for first experiences. Players will soon learn the tricks and after a few experiences improve dramatically.

Played this course twice during our stay. Great variety of holes, loads of water hazards, the overall condition of the course was excellent. Some great views throughout. Tough opening hole and a very challenging finishing 4 holes. Highly recommended.

This is a challenging course with several blind shots, water in places you may not expect it and long grass along the fairway.
