Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Courses
Black Horse is a challenging course with beautiful Monterey Bay views
Greens are very quick and tough to hold, nothing like the putting surface adjacent to the range. If you have never played this course before there are some false fronts and blind collection areas that your balls will find. All in all, it is a true test of your game that will challenge the accuracy and every other aspect of your game. Black Horse is one the best kept secrets on the Monterey Peninsula.

You can't lose.
The Bayonet/Blackhorse complex is a ruby among diamonds and emeralds.

The course was in fantastic shape & we never saw the groups in front of us or behind us all day. They don't let you tee off on the first hole until the group in front has reached the green. The course is well worth an 85.00 green fee and if you can play it for less then it's a bargain. Don't hesitate to play either course here. You'll be glad you did.

Among the best in Monterey Bay
I've been a resident of Monterey Bay for almost 10 years. And unbelievably, I just played Bayonet for the very first time. It definitely lives up to it's reputation as being one of the best in Monterey Bay. But to me, what makes or breaks a pleasant golf experience is the staff running it. I dealt with Patrick over the phone and with Dillon over the counter. Both were both very pleasant and a pleasure to deal with. Having been a golf course owner in SC before moving to CA, I believe that a competent staff is equally important to a golf course condition, layout & maintenance. Would highly recommend this golf course.

Great course. Super challenging greens. Amazing condition.
I love B&B. Have probably played here a dozen or so times. The course is always in perfect condition. The greens are very hard, but role true. Yesterday they were insanely fast tho which made putts borderline unmanageable from outside of 10ft with the amount of break on Blackhorse.
The pace yesterday was a bit absurd however. It took us over 5 hours to play a round as a threesome and we averaged a 2-5min wait per shot. Really hard to get in a rhythm.
Weather was perfect. Staff is amazing. And I'll be back again.. I think I'll just stick to Mon-Thurs play from now on.

Great course. Greens were firm and fast and required good shots to hold the green. Don't worry about these reviews saying the greens were too difficult to putt. It was like playing a tour course with a tour set up. Super fun. Couldn't recommend this course anymore.

A must play Monterey course..
Great day, great golf and superb weather. Greens can be fast, but fair...some great views. Course is well kept...can be foggy in the early morning but burns off fairly quickly...weather tends to be calmer in the mornings.

Excellent Value for Your Money
Booked on Golfnow for Black Horse and got a great deal. The staff were friendly and the course conditions were immaculate. Loved the difficulty level - some holes were pretty difficult and some fun and easy. Will return again to play and definitely recommend !
