Bayonet and Black Horse

Black Horse and Bayonet Point are in Seaside just off US 1 north of Monterey set up on a hill overlooking Monterey Bay. Both courses were part of Fort Ord before it was decommissioned, but have been redesigned and open to public play.

Bayonet opened in 1954 and was originally designed by General Robert McClure in honor of the 7th Infantry Light Fighter Division. It's a classic layout along narrow, tree lined fairways with numerous doglegs both uphill and downhill providing scenic views of the Monterey Bay. The course was recently redesigned and lengthened by Gene Bates, and now plays to 7,104 yards from the black tees, 74.8/139, course/slope ratings with three shorter tees.

Black Horse has the same topography as Bayonet and was "softened" up a bit with the renovation by removing trees and opening up the fairways. It's still a challenging layout with the fairways lined by trees and sand traps while the multi-tiered, undulating, and quick greens are well defended by deep sand bunkers. The course was also designed by Gen. McClure, named after the 11th Calvary Regiment, and opened in 1964. Bates also redesigned the course with four sets of tees, the tips playing to 7,024 yards, 73.7/136, course/slope ratings.
