Played 9-8 as a threesome. Was over in the area for a wedding and had some time to kill so me and a couple of buddies decided to play the par 3 course since we have never played it before. What a treat. It’s fun and very challenging. The greens are very dramatic in their undulations, which makes you think about where you’re going to hit your tee shot. The hardest hole is the shortest hole, playing only 82 yards but over water with a green that doesn’t have a flat spot on it.

The greens were in perfect condition. Minor divot damage but nothing terrible.

Tee boxes had minor divot damage but again nothing terrible. They were a little uneven which is the only knock.

The only rough they had was the frog hair that grew around the bunkers. They kept the rest of the grass around the green pretty tight which made it even more difficult if you were just off. Basically had to put everything.

If you’re in the area and don’t have 4 to 5 hours to play a full 18 with some friends, I strongly suggest playing the Challenge par 3 course at Monarch. At only 26 bucks to ride and 16 to walk, it’s a steal and a half.
