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.

I decided not to travel with clubs this year because family vacation. Bad idea. I'm not sure if Monarch even has a golf pro because if they did a golf pro or good manager could easily get demo clubs from reps. At any rate not...More
