Nipomo, CA 93444-6620, United States

Monarch Dunes is located along the central California coast just south of San Luis Obispo in Nipomo. Both the award-winning Old Course and the 12-hole Challenge Course were designed by architect Damian Pascuzzo and former PGA Tour and Ryder Cup star Steve Pate, although the nines on the Old Course were reversed in January of 2012. Since the course opened in 2006, it has garnered these rankings and awards:

• "Top 10 New Courses You Can Play," Golf Magazine (2007)
• "America's Top 50 Golf Courses for Women," Golf Digest (Old Course)
• "Top 10 par-3 Course," (Challenge Course)

The standard adult walking rates are $57 weekdays and $81 weekends and holidays (carts are $18). Discounts are available for seniors, active and retired military, and residents of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. A frequent-player discount card is also offered.

Nice challenging course. Definitely worth playing.

Great layout! Visually very appealing with every hole offering dramatic views and challenging shots.

I have repeated Turn around trips just to play this course and i'm 4 hours away. The two course combo is a blast from a warm up round on the par 3 course to great set up they have on the old course. Stop by Jackos and grab a steak dinner when your done!!!

Great course for the money. Greens were in really good shape and were really fast. I wouldn't say this is a true links course, as there is water on several holes and you don't have to land your ball short of the green to hold the green. Also, the fairways were flat like a traditional course.
