Monarch Dunes Golf Club: Located just a few miles south of Arroyo Grande on California's Central Coast, Monarch Dunes features the award-winning Old Course as well as the newly opened 12-hole Challenge course. Both layouts were designed by Damian Pascuzzo and Steve Pate. Whereas the Challenge course will test your iron-play and short game on this excellent collection of par-3 holes, the championship Old course will ensure every aspect of your game is suitably examined. Monarch Dunes is part of The Woodlands, a master-planned resort and Trilogy residential community. Although housing lines several holes, sometimes on both sides, enough of the natural habitat of windswept dunes, eucalyptus trees, coastal vistas and amber-coloured hillsides has been retained to create a visually attractive golf course. Often quite links-like in character, the layout contains several memorable holes, not least the signature downhill 13th. This testing downhill 423-yard par-4 features a prominent bluff running across the fairway, with the leftside flanked along its entire length by a eucalyptus woodland.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
