The contrast of the rolling green hills of the golf course against the vast blue of the ocean is enough to distract any player from the game at hand. At this Southern California resort, there is a collection of top golf courses within 30 miles, though many guests choose to play at the adjacent Monarch Beach Golf Links. Among the few ocean courses in the area, Monarch Beach offers a Scottish links-style course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. that presents players with both variety and sweeping sea views.
