Depends how far you want to drive and how much you want to spend. Monarch Beach is close, but honestly not nearly worth it for the $. Pelican Hill is really nice, but very expensive and a bit of a drive. San Juan Hills is reasonable, close, but nothing special. Talega is pretty good from what I hear (haven't played). There is also Tijeras Creek, but I think a little overpriced.

Try Monarch Beach, I've heard good things about it.

You can head south toward Oceanside & Carlsbad, (about 20-30minutes) Arrowood in Oceanside is a great course, Aviara in Carlsbad is awesome, but it's not cheap. If you're not looking to spend a ton of money Encinitas Ranch is a good option, it's a fun course but won't be as nice as the two I just mentioned.

I strongly recommend Talega Golf Club in San Clemente.  15 minutes from  Dana Point.  Co-designed by Fred Couples and one of my favorites in Southern California.  Fees are around $80 and not over-priced like many Orange County courses.

Here is the website:  http://www.talegagol...olf-course.html

thanks for the input.  Around what time does the sun set out there?  GolfNow has weekend tee times at Monarch Beach for $90 at 2PM.   Anyone play Shorecliffs? Talega looks nice!

Shorecliffs is terrible, too tight, bad shape, sounds better than it is. Every other option already mentioned is better. San Juan hills is nice but is also a much lower tier than Talega or monarch/pelican.

I live in Dana point.  Talega is pretty nice, shore cliffs is a waste of money San Juan hills is ok, Tijeras creek I love, arroyo lost their greens a while back not sure they've recovered.  From what I hear monarch is over priced only has 1-2 holes with ocean view.  Pm me for more details or any other questions. maybe we can  get together for a round

When I visited there this summer I enjoyed San Clemente Muni quite a lot, and the price was great, like $50.  I played as a single and just showed up early in the morning and they got me right on.  Lots of walkers.  Really well stocked pro shop.
