The words “golf getaway” are likely music to the special dad in your life’s ears. Few things are nicer than a trip somewhere gorgeous to relax and play around on the course. And with a stay at Monarch Beach Resort, your dad will really be feeling loved.
At this beachside resort in Dana Point, Calif. proudly stands Monarch Beach Golf Links, a stunning oceanfront 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Whether your dad is a pro, or an amateur, this course will fulfill all of his golfing dreams. In fact, the course was designed specifically for non-traditional golfers to give them a way to enjoy golfing like the pros do. The resort has incorporated unique concepts into the golfing experience for non-traditional golfers including:
“Surfing the Greens”
While guests at the resort have access to great surfing on the waves steps away from the resort, guests can also “surf the greens” via what’s called the GolfBoard, designed by surf legend Laird Hamilton. The GolfBoard is a standup, fully electric vehicle that makes traveling from shot to shot on the course a lot more fun.
Putting to shame the standard cooler filled with a bunch of cold beers, the cocktail caddy service cart available at Monarch Beach resort provides golfers with a cocktail experience unlike any other. An inventive cocktail menu will make the golf game much more interesting.
Swing and Spa
Proudly home to one of the two Miraval Life in Balance spas on the west coast, Monarch Beach provides to golfers the opportunity to have a more holistic experience by partaking in either pre- or post-round body treatments at the spa. With treatments and classes specifically created for golfers such as the “Golfer’s Tonic” massage and “Pilates for Golf,” the resort has worked to put a special emphasis on caring for your dad’s golfing body beyond the links.
Drop-in Golf Experience
For that dad in your life that is a first-time golfer, or isn’t always able to remember all his golfing equipment, Monarch Beach’s drop-in experience is perfect. Available for either 5,9, or 18 holes of golf, your dad will have access to flex Sets rental clubs and shoes, use of a GolfBoard or golf cart, GPF, bottled water and balls.
