Very Fun Course!

They over seeded the course. Fairways & Greens in great shape! Always a fun course to play. Very forgiving course. Wide open. Due to COVID they tried to charge me an extra $10 to ride in the cart by myself. If you don’t want to ride with the person you’re paired with they said a new policy from the GM. Nothing is posted about the extra $10 on Golf now or in the golf shop.

Great Course

I have played the Monarchs a number of times and have never been disappointed with the staff or the course. The grounds are always well kept and play is rather fast for such a well played course. You have to give a try if you enjoy playing different courses.

Thank goodness for golf!

They are taking great care to be sure that we don't have to be in contact with anything we don't own. It makes for a relatively care-free morning.

Lovely Round

As a new golfer, I value a scenic and relaxing experience over all else. I found this course to be just challenging enough. The fairways were beautiful and lush, and the greens were well kept with some challenging undulations.

I will definitely be back.
