Monarch Beach – Labor Day on the Links

 

Just winding up a relaxing labor day weekend down in the OC.  On Saturday, we played a really interesting, tough (RTJ Jr.) very pretty resort course called Monarch Beach.  There were some really cool holes on the course – I especially loved the three hole stretch of 5, 6, 7.

The highlight of the day for me was rolling in a 60 foot birdie putt on #5 – and then loudly celebrating…only to turn around and notice that a wedding was happening on the bluff overlooking the fifth green.  The groomsmen seemed pretty psyched for me – the bridesmaids, bride, mom, priest…not so much.

The course looks a little brown..because it was.  They killed all of the fairways to re-seed them.  Didn’t effect play, but looked pretty weird.  On film, it almost looks like we’re in great britian.
