Monarch Beach Golf Links
Saturday, June 9 · NOON
The Academy is pleased to offer a golf outing for Fellows and their guests on Saturday afternoon, June 9.
We have a noon shotgun start at the Monarch Beach Golf Links. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. It is modeled in the traditional Scottish links style - short, yet sweet, layout - with two holes caressing the shore and several others with views of the Pacific. Golf Digest ranks the course as one of the “Best Places to Play” and the course is ranked the “#1 Best Golf Course in Orange County”. PGA Pro, Tom Watson, compares the greens to those at Augusta National.
The Monarch Beach course is in Dana Point, just 4 miles and 7 minutes south of the Montage. Bus transportation is provided.
The total cost is $317
This includes greens fees, golf cart, transportation and box lunch. Rental clubs are $90.
NOTE: The Academy does not have a scheduled outing for Friday afternoon due to the tight schedule with the Art Walk beginning late Friday afternoon (with dinner on your own). If golf is more important to you than the Friday evening event, we can help you schedule golf for Friday afternoon.
