Bayonet Golf Course

Rated as the most difficult of the golf courses on the Monterey Peninsula, this par 72 7104 yard golf course was originally opened in 1954 by General Robert B McClure and was built on the site of the original Ford Ord, consequently, the course was named after the 7th Infantry Light Fighter Division or “Bayonet Division”.designed by Gene Bates and along with its sister course Both Bayonet and its sister, Black Horse course both received a re-design and upgrade in 2008 by the Gene Bates design, making both courses more playable to the average golfer. The course is tree-lined, with classical snow-white sand Bates bunkers and spectacular views out and across the bay.

Bayonet, the initial of the two courses at this Golf Complex in Northern California, was long spoken about as the place to play golf near Monterey to really evaluate your game. In order to create. The narrow tree-lined fairways and harsh rough combined was initially set up to produce a U.S Open experience for the mere mortal golfer.  In 2008, with a Gene Bates redesign that trimmed back the punishing trees and softened the general feel at Bayonet, the course tried to redefine itself. The outcome was a more player-friendly course that still offers golfers plenty of demanding challenges but also allowed the amateur and higher handicapped golfers a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf.  Thinning out the trees also opened up some welcome views that are enjoyed on the course and from the restaurant and across the grounds.

We highly recommend a round at this wonderful golf course, It will challenge every aspect of your game whilst being an enjoyable walk too.

With the Monterey Bay at its backdrop Bayonet is always in great condition and a test for golfers of all abilities.
