A Perfect Round on the Peninsula With Malbon Golf’s Co-Founder

From coffee to the course, Erica Malbon’s picks are on par with the best.

Erica Malbon is the co-founder of Malbon Golf, along with her husband, Stephen. The fashion-forward golf lifestyle brand, known for bringing cool to the course, opened its Carmel store late last year. A favorite among athletes and celebrities (Justin Bieber, Steph Curry, Travis Scott), Malbon Golf’s appeal lies in its irreverence: playful branding, unconventional collaborators, and a community of like-minded customers bringing a fresh perspective to the game. Erica’s eye for aesthetics and creative acumen are key drivers of her success. Prior to Malbon Golf, Erica also co-founded The Now, a multi-location massage boutique in Southern California. She and her family live in Carmel and play golf nearly every day.

MORNING

8A

Pop into Stationæry for my first coffee of the day. They have the best seasonal lattes.

11A

Check in on the Malbon Golf store, right next door to Stationæry, and see what new goods have arrived! Afterwards, pop into Carmel Drug Store and pick up a few things. It feels like you are stepping into a drugstore from the 1930s. They have the best selection of goods and it is very well curated.

Afternoon

1P

Drive through Carmel Valley to have lunch at Corkscrew Cafe. The pizza is to die for and the ambiance is beautiful.

3:30P

Take a walk along Carmel Beach with my dog. It is my favorite thing to do in the late afternoon.

Evening

6:30P

Head to The Hay for an evening round of golf and stay for dinner and drinks at Hay’s Place. You will find my husband Stephen, the kids and I having dinner and taking in the sunset here at least twice a week.
