Owner description: 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.

“My Favorite Golf Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Monarch has the feel of a Scotish course with meandering hills carved through Euclyptus groves and sand dunes. Greens are velvet bent grass ... only course around that I know of.

“Great course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Not to tough, not too easy....just right for a once a week golfer. Very well maintained fairways and greens.

“First timers might want to bring someone who knows the course.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013 via mobile

Everything is spread out - pro shop, range, tees - and not particularly well marked. More direction signs would help. I would not recommend walking this course - green to next tee is often a long way. But on some holes your cart is useless - you will not be able to take it anywhere near your ball. The course wanders through a residential neighborhood so houses are plentiful on some holes but not so close that play is impeded (like Bodega). Tough course and terrain, high handicappers may become frustrated, more fun for better players.

“This course is amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

WE loved our visit to Monarch Dunes! the driving range is the best. Most holes were par 4 or better, and had a lot of blind holes... so it was difficult a bit to know where you were headed. fun water features everywhere. Friendly staff. Bland food. The gold was zoo worth returning for! Tahnks Monarh Dunes!

“Good golf course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2012 via mobile

Beautiful course with elevation changes, water and huge trees. Only drawback for us is that is set among a neighborhood. But overall a great round.
