Check it out: Bayonet/Black Horse golf on Monterey Bay
Bayonet, which opened as a military golf course in 1954 on what used to be Fort Ord, is actually one of two courses at the Seaside Resort that was part of a $13 million renovation. Black Horse is the other championship course and both reopened in December, and they are spectacular.
Renowned architect Gene Bates oversaw the work, which included some rerouting, massive tree trimming and the removal of underbrush to make way for views of Monterey Bay. Both courses were also re-grassed with Jacklin T1 bentgrass tee to green with fescue roughs to give the courses a striking appearance.
At $75-$160 for green fees, playing there isn’t as affordable than before, but you get so much more now. Plus, it’s far less than the other top-quality courses on the Monterey Peninsula, making Bayonet/Black Horse a must-play for anyone taking a golf trip there.
