This links course has sand bunkers spread throughout its design. The course winds along a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean with views of the ocean and Monarch Beach. Two holes are located right above the ocean.

Watch out for # 7, a 612 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 17, a 172 yard par-3.

The course has extensive bunkering, more prominent on the shorter holes. Have the holes have water that comes into play. With ocean breezes often a factor, you should consider this a shot-makers course.

#12 is memorable, it starts off with you hitting toward the ocean with a dogleg left to a large green complete with four-foot-high undulations.
