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.

The People are friendly and helpful. The vibe is good. The food is good. Above all else the course is well maintained and in great shape. Monarch has grown into a very special place to play golf and fun place to spend the day.
