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.
