For golfers who want to be treated like tour stars, the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort is rolling out the red-carpet treatment with a “Fit Fore VIPs” golf package that will be an experience of a lifetime. And there’s no need to pack the clubs, since this package includes a personal fitting at world headquarters of a major equipment manufacturer.
Escape to the luxurious Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond property in Southern California’s beautiful Orange County, where creating individual experiences to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit are a specialty at this peaceful sanctuary along the Pacific.
“The “Fit Fore VIPs” golf package is an ultimate guys’ golf getaway, as well as an ideal vacation for avid golfing couples,” said Eric Lohman, PGA, General Manager of Monarch Beach Golf Links, “either for a weekend trip or an extended stay.”
Lohman notes that guests will be guided throughout the experience by a PGA golf professional from the Monarch Beach Golf Links staff.
“About the only thing missing is an actual red carpet,” said Lohman, who is personally coordinating each “Fit Fore VIPs” golf experience.
Guests will be chauffeured to and from the selected company’s elite full-service facilities – exactly where the tour pros go for their club testing. After a personalized club-fitting using the latest technology, the golfer can order custom-made clubs that will be shipped to the golfer’s home.
Available throughout 2015, the package starts at $1,630 per person and includes:
-Private limousine service (to and from airport, club-fitting)
-A luxurious suite for two nights at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort (double occupancy)
-St. Regis Butler Service throughout the stay
-Club-fitting at world headquarters of Titleist, TaylorMade, or Callaway (cost of new equipment is additional)
-Unlimited golf daily on the Monarch Beach Golf Links
-“FlexSet” golf club rental (while the new set is being built)
-Golf car and Monarch Beach “Waterman” personal forecaddie service for each round
-Access to the resort’s private beach and “guests-only” Monarch Bay Club
“Fit Fore VIPs” guests are surrounded by the refined amenities of a spacious coastal retreat. The resort is the recipient of a Silver Medal from GOLF magazine and has been rated 4.5 stars (out of 5) by Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play.”
The 6,600-yard, par-70 Monarch Beach Golf Links is set along dramatic bluffs where master architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has fashioned a modern design inspired by the legendary seaside Scottish links. Amid sweeping views of the Pacific, Monarch Beach Golf Links is a well-crafted routing of tight fairways and rolling greens that provide challenge as well as enjoyment to golfers of all levels.
Down at the beach, guests can relax to the sounds of rolling waves, or enjoy surfing, body-boarding, body-surfing, stand up paddle-boarding, and ocean kayaking. Private lessons in all these sports are available. The resort also features the award-wining Spa Gaucin, six restaurants (all looking out over the blue Pacific), three swimming pools, and a host of guest-friendly programs.
Each recently restyled guest room is awash with natural light through expansive glass doors that lead out to a private open -air balcony. Plush bedding, lounge seating and a quiet worktable complete a setting to be truly at ease. The master bathroom is elegantly designed to provide spa-like comforts: deep soaking bathtub, which enjoys daylight through plantation shutters; rainfall shower; spacious amenity-rich vanity.
The “Fit Fore VIPs” package is based on availability; some blackout dates may apply. For more details and reservations call Eric Lohman at (949) 248-3021 or email him at elohman(at)monarchbeachgolf(dot)com
