Well run course

While often windy being by the SF bay, the course appears fairly wide open. There are however hidden dangers lurking. The greens while not super fast are still in very good shape. This course has some really fun holes and I always enjoy playing here.

A nice round of golf

It was windier than the usual, but it was a enjoyable round. Course in nice condition, friendly & accomodating staff & a good pace of play making up for the wind. I'll be back!

Great greens but...

The greens here role as good as anywhere else you’ll find in the bay area. But as is always the case there seems to be a problem we’re just maintaining the fairways. Very very rough course, looks completely like a municipal course. Also a little bit of etiquette with repairing the bullet holes on the greens would be nice. But I did only pay $25 so maybe I shouldn’t complain

Monarch Bay

Good course lay out but it's not a good winter course, it was very wet with "cart path only" restrictions in effect.
The range was closed due to bad weather. The chipping and putting practice areas were adequate and kept in good condition.
The sand bunkers were challenging but very well maintained.
The Restaurant offers a fairly good menu at very reasonable prices.
Bob at the front desk and Mike at the 1st tee provided excellent service.

Award - WORST POST COVID COURSE IN THE BAY AREA

So first off I’ve got news for you Metro you are NOT the first course to open during these troubling times, there are A LOT who have all over the state and i have played several; without a doubt Metro’s policing of the whacked out Oakland Mayors intentions with the crisis was by far the worst managed I have taken part in.

To top it off as usual the pace of play was atrocious, I had a work issue come up on the the 15th so I was forced to take it in only to find there were at least 3 holes wide open after passing group in front.. Crisis or not no course should allow a group to fall 3+ holes behind group ahead but oh right I forgot your granting me this privilege to play in the ever so treacherous Oakland area.

Anyone local agrees seriously recommend you go play the MANY other options throughout the bay. Odds are nothing will be as bad as it is here, in fact I know for fact most of them will be a better experience.
Will never come here again unless I’m taking my friends money

Great course with limited challenges

It was my first time there. It is a great course overall. The day we went was a little bit cold. On that day, they had a speed challenge for golfers and could won a round of beer who could finish within 4.5 hours. A great way to speed up the pace. The course is well maintained. The only downside is there are quite a few natural protection areas and long bushes. You could lost couples of ball here and there if you could not hit straight shots often.
