Newport Beach


What’s the golf scene like in Newport Beach?

Are there multiple municipal courses you can play for decent $$$? Or is it more of a country club feel and an expensive city to consistently play in?


There’s a nice exec track in town and nearby Costa Mesa has a decent 36 hole muni. For heavy $$$ you can quick get over to Monarch (don’t recommend) or Pelican Hill (better!) but there’s also Strawberry Farms and Oak Creek for under $150.
Newport is pretty great. Laguna is better. I wouldn’t bother with golf.


Pelican. Other than that I wouldn’t play golf on a visit to Newport Beach/Huntington Beach/Laguna, etc… Much more to do and see… If you’re a beer person there are enough solid spots to get the best CA has to offer.
