altDANA POINT, California — Now, more than before, the Monarch Beach Resort has solidified its position as one of the top luxury golf resorts in Southern California along the Pacific Coast, and is a Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awarded resort.

This spectacular destination features 400 exquisitely appointed guest rooms and suites, and the 6,600-yard Par-72 Monarch Beach Golf Links that sits on the bluffs overlooking the ocean next to the hotel. Designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the Monarch Beach Golf Links was designed much like a Scottish links course with tight fairways and rolling greens that meander along the California Coast in one of the most picturesque settings in this part of the world.

altThey don’t call Palm Springs the “golf capital of the world” for nothing. Not only are there more than 110 courses in the greater Palm Springs/Coachella Valley footprint, but they’re also among the world’s most beautiful.

altThere aren’t enough superlatives to convey the Wow Factor of this resort!

NEWPORT COAST, California (Dr. Barry Lotz/iG) — I gave this resort a 5 rating, however, honestly it deserves a 10. If one item in particular stands out above all the exemplary traits found at the resort, it is that service is supreme.

The Resort at Pelican Hill is not simply a golf destination. It seeks to compete with nearby jewels like the Ritz Carlton, Montage and Terranea, for guests who come for spa services, poolside lounging, beaches, and nearby attractions, or to live the chic Southern California lifestyle. Golf is just one of the resort's most prominent amenities, and what a lure for people who love the game.
