It is located at the coast of the San Francisco Bay. So the view is beautiful no matter what time of the day it is. But the wind picks up in the afternoon. So the back nine holes are much more challenging although the course is flat and walk-able. The maintenance crews do a good job keeping the fairways and... More

Caught a beautiful day here at Monarch Bay Golf. Early October golf with only a slight breeze and a cool view across the bay to SF. The course has a pretty good special that offers 18 holes of golf, cart, cheeseburger and two beers for only $38. Management is thinking outside the box and getting players to come in and... More

Attended a golf church charity event one Saturday morning. This course provided plenty of challenges for the average duffer. From thick roughs, high winds, tree lines to bunkers in the middle of fairways! Bring plenty of golf balls and your patience. The pace can get real slow. The course has great discounted golf offerings so expect a lot of golfers... More

This golf course has a nice practice range as well as a nice golf course. The golf course has nice views of the bay. It also has a pro shop. The golf course is close to the Marina area of San Leandro.

Beautiful and well maintained golf course just south of Oakland Airport. The course offers senior discounts or discounts for San Leandro Marina guests. There is a snack bar and bar. The pro shop is well stocked, full driving range, putting green, and chipping green available. Prices are very fair and worn it.

Difficult course to play in the afternoon with strong winds blowing in from the bay. Most of the holes have a cross-wind due to the course layout in conjunction with the bay. The tee boxes are average with bunkers in most of the fairways. The first cut of rough is very manageable, but like most links courses the primary rough... More

Be warned. If you are a local who gets their "golf specials"-it's too good to be true. There are conditions regarding ways and days that you book your round that aren't mentioned in the e-mails where you can't get the special prices. To add insult to injury-their staff is unfriendly, unprofessional, and don't seem to care whether you play golf... More
