Bayonet Course
at Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Club

Pebble Beach & Monterey, USA

Bayonet Course overview

The first course to open at Bayonet and Black Horse, it was designed in 1954 by General Robert McClure, the Commanding Officer of the Fort Ord U.S. Army training facility at that time. Gen. McClure was a left-handed golfer with a severe slice, so he designed the course to fit his game, which is highlighted by a series of sharp doglegs nicknamed “Combat Corner” from holes 11 to 15.

The Bayonet Course is characterized as having long narrow fairways framed with oak and cypress trees. From the highest elevations on the course, golfers can enjoy panoramic views of the Monterey Bay. A renovation in 2008 helped to modernize the course but also introduced steep bunkering that is particularly penalizing. The course plays 7104 yards from the back tees but offers four tee boxes to accommodate golfers of all abilities.
