Back 9 pace of play
My buddy and I woke up extremely early to play a fast round by teeing off at 526am. When we got to #10, we waited on every shot for the rest of the round and took more than 2x the time to play the back as it did the front.
This was because the course let out a bunch of back nine walkers which completely bogged down the whole back nine.
I suggest you better manage the amount of people you let off the back to ensure that your full 18 holes customers experience the steady pace of play throughout the round as this is what you would expect being the first group off at 526am!
Better than anticipated. Greens were fast, well maintained. Definitely will play again. Great price for the course!
An SF Bay Area Must Play
The Elements dictate the difficulty level on any given day at Monarch Bay. There is an abundance of Wildlife and some stunning views weather permitting. Accuracy of the tee is rewarded and the greens are protected well by bunkers. I always enjoy playing the course when I can find an affordable Tee Time.
With the rough areas as tall as they are, you need Marshall’s to keep the pace of play. Group in front constantly looking in deep rough for ball. Slowed it to a crawl.
Fairways are in great shape. Tee boxes getting re-sodded so distance on holes much easier.
The course was in good shape but I booked the tee time on GolfNow. And had no idea they just aireated the greens in the beginning of the week but they weren’t that bad and they gave us additional $5.00 off Wichita’s nice.
Got to the course the. Was told of Aeration. “We tried to tell golfnow”. Even though every other course seems to be able to figure it out. A clear con job. Pace was awful. Got hit into three times while waiting for green to clear from 150 out. Awful place and getting worse.
Great conditions with good drainage
Found a great single person early tee time and was able to go ahead as the first player of the first 2 groups which was slow (argh) Friday’s is very busy and slow with a lot of senior players. They need a Marshall to police speed of play.
While it had rained the course obviously has very poor drainage and fairways were quagmires. The bunkers on several holes were full of water, at least they plan on fixing that problem soon. The wicked grass that lines many holes punishes even slightly errant shots.
To start off the round they where 20min behind. And it took 1hour to play 2 holes. By the time we made it to the 4th hole it was a hour and 50min absolutely the worst place i have ever been the course was a swamp amd they where letting cart's just rip up the course. Will never play there again we left after 4 holes...
Really good local golf course
Although there were backups from other players and it was rather cold we had a great day of golf.
The course was in relatively good shape and the greens were excellent. Thanks for a good experience Monarch.
Very affordable for the area. Nice greens and layout.
Greens in very good shape. Bunkers are inconsistent. Some have sand others have mud. Played front 2X as back 9 was backed up 3 groups on 10.
Overall excellent day.
Course in excellent shape. Even though back nine started slow, was still able to complete in 4 hr 10 min.
Pace of play was much improved from last time. Greens in excellent shape
A very good course
Monarch Bay is a very good and fun course to play.The holes are challenging but not too difficult.
The one drawback is the slow play.
