Monarch Dunes Golf Club

At Monarch Dunes Golf Club, the links-style golf of coastal Britannia stretches out in the hills of California. Amid windswept dunes and eucalyptus trees sweep coastal views speckled with amber hillsides and big blue skies. And this is just how architects Damian Pascuzzo and PGA Tour Pro Steve Pate wanted it. But they also wanted something beyond beautiful vistas. They wanted a unique 30-hole arena that tested the mettle of golfers.

On the 6,810-yard, par-71 Old Course, players unleash the full potential of their swings on the open expanses of the longer front nine before dialing back for close control on the back nine—a shorter tract made formidable by water hazards on all but two holes. Though the two halves have their own distinct flavors, both begin with mid-length par-4s. These are the course's two most difficult holes, so savvy golfers should spend extra time before the round and at the turn to give their driver an encouraging massage.

While the Old Course is a grassy homage to golf's most sacred traditions, Monarch Dunes' Challenge Course charts a much more unorthodox path—and not just in its unconventional 12-hole layout. While some par-3 courses are known as "pitch-and-putts" for their short holes, The Challenge—named among the Top 10 Par-3 Courses by—will have some reaching for a driver or three-wood on holes 5 and 12, which measure 242 and 202 yards respectively. Golfers can expect to finish the round in two hours or less, freeing up plenty of time to relax at the Butterfly Grille or shop for flame decals to glue onto their golf bag.

Course at a Glance: The Challenge

  • 12-hole, par 36 course
  • Total length of 1,858 yards from the back tees
  • Four tee options
  • Scorecard
  • Tees are designed specifically for beginners up to advanced golfers

Great experience with lesson and challenge course!
Marcella R. · September 11, 2016
Took a lesson with my wife. Instructor was great. I've played for years and she helped clean up a couple things for my game. Dropped my wife's game, who has only been playing for about a year, 20+ strokes. Grounds were well taken care of. All staff we encountered from check-in to cart guys, marshall, were very nice. Food at clubhouse was predictable but very good as was the service there. Great afternoon. ...twice.

My husband and I learned so much from Jim DeLaby at our lesson and then we were able to practice what we learned on the Challenge Course at Monarch Dunes. Jim is THE BEST!
