Stay and play in beautiful Monterey with the Inns of Monterey and Blackhorse & Bayonet package deal

SEASIDE, Calif. -- With its narrow playing corridors and steep, penal bunkering, the
Bayonet Course at Bayonet and Black Horse has long been considered the most difficult test of golf on the Monterey Peninsula. The par-72, 7,104-yard course retained its famous bite after the recent renovation by award-winning architect Gene Bates, but playability and strategic options were greatly improved. The uphill, dogleg right, 476-yard, par-4 ninth hole exemplifies the course's significant challenge.

Black Horse, a 7,024-yard, par-72 layout, features sweeping vistas of the Pacific and is highlighted by fescue-framed fairways, bunkers with distinctive, serrated edges and slickly-contoured greens. The par-3 15th faces the bay and is sure to emerge as one of the great holes on the Peninsula.

Now you can stay and play in beautiful Monterey through March 2014 and enjoy rates starting at $339 weekdays including overnight accommodations and two rounds of golf at Bayonet and Black Horse (including cart and range) for one person.

Dates: Good through March 31, 2014.

Price range: $339.
