Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Courses - Bayonet Course

View Tee Times

Named after the Army's 7th Infantry Division - the first major unit to occupy Fort Ord, as well as the last. The famed Light Fighters (nicknamed the "Bayonet Division") marched for the last time during inactivation ceremonies in 1993 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC).

With over 7,094 yards of oak and cypress-lined fairways, Bayonet Golf Course was designed in 1954 by General Robert McClure, the Commanding Officer of the post at that time. Gen. McClure, a left-handed golfer with a severe slice, designed the course to fit his game. This is evidenced by holes #11-15, a series of sharp doglegs, widely known as "Combat Corner," interrupted only by a 215-yard uphill par 3. Notoriously known for its magnificently manicured, long, and narrow fairways, Bayonet is one tough, but rewarding 18-hole adventure. With four sets of tees, the course is a par 72, with a slope of 138 and a rating of 75.3.

A Keeper! This is a course you could play every week and enjoy it every round; nice layout; player friendly; nice vistas; good condition; lots of slopes/tough to read greens; October 24, 2014
Beautiful course Great course! Greens were fast and prestine. Can't complain about the view! Great layout. October 23, 2014
Outstanding!! Bayonet was a beautiful course, well maintained, green, and simply magnificent. Fairways were narrow due to tree overhang but trees were very well-groomed. I will be back, I will bring extra balls! October 22, 2014
Amazing course Course layouts were very challenging but the greens and pin locations were where the real difficulty was. The greens on blackhorse were rolling as fast as I have ever played on with several false fronts on every green that would suck your ball right off of the green. If you found yourself in one of the low areas green side, there were several options to play. All equally challenging. The way the greens were playing were not for the beginning golfer, not that I am excellent. I really enjoyed the experience and will definitely be returning. October 21, 2014
Good Day The greens were challenging but fair. Run offs were fun to deal with as you could putt or chip back up on all of them. October 20, 2014
outstanding montery course have played this course numerous times. Always in great condition, greens rolling quick. Playing here in a tournament or just getting out for the day. Always a good experience. October 16, 2014
This course is in great shape Beautiful day and the course was in perfect shape. Greens are really tough with a lot of undulation. Didn't lose a ball either. Lots of twosomes and we were behind a slow pair, had to wait on most holes. October 14, 2014
