I play this course whenever I am in the area. The layout is great and the greens are very challenging. It is a great test of golf. The only issue this time was some of the fairways were a bit spotty at times, but overall a wonderful test of golf.

We are a foursome that plays every week. We all enjoy coming here. Our last round was definitely more challenging though as the course was set up for tournament play. The extra high rough cost us extra shots on this day. Course management was essential. Was still very fun.

This was my first time playing here and it exceeded my expectations. The course was in great shape and challenging from hole # 1 through the 18th. I would recommend this course for intermediate players and above. I will be back to enjoy this excellent golf course. Very clean and professionally run course.

Probably one of the most interesting layouts I played. The course is challenging but fair. Wind invites itself on some holes, then disappears! Greens are faahhhst. Had a really nice time and the deal made it even sweeter!

The course was in great shape. I played in the afternoon which always adds the challenge of the wind which really makes for a fun day of second guessing your clubs. I was paired up with 2 local course regulars, who were great guys, with a lot of insight. The only negative was the pro shop, I was told, no pin sheet available, which in my opinion was ridiculous due to the importance of being in the right position on your approach shots. They treated me like a peasant that had no business inside the building, very disappointing knowing the roots of the course originally catered to our men and women in the military. It wasn't a bad day however, the starter, cart guy, and the bartender were friendly.

The Bayonet/Black Horse courses are fantastic. Challenging but fair. You earn every bit of your score here. The courses are beautifully maintained and provide wonderfully framed holes. It's always a treat to return.

Open looking fairways lull you into a sense of security until one of the multiple traps grabs your ball. Greens can be very undulating depending on pin placement. You may put uphill until the ball reaches the hole and then it's downhill and into a catchment area if you hit it too hard. Distance control is very important on the fairway shots to avoid the bunkers; on the approach shots to be below the hole and on the undulating putts.

I played Bayonet on the reccomandation from a friend. What a treat! Great layout with fairways outlined by a tough rough and big trees. Keep the ball in play and you will be all right, get out of position, and you will pay the price. After you ha negotiated the foregoing, you will have to deal with the greens - just make sure you place your approach shot below the hole to have a fighting chance.

I loved this course so much that it is going to be my course when I go to Carmel.

Enjoy!

Bayonet on my Birthday, only thing that would beat it would be Pebble! Great weather, great course, and great friends, what a day! The rough can be tough so keep it on the fairway! Greens run true and have some tricky reads. Bunkers are challenging but sand is perfect in them. Play both courses if you can, Black Horse is great as well!

We went out behind a NorCal SoCal tournament, took 1 hour to finish 3 holes, starter said we were only 5 minutes off pace of play?? Group in front of us played rock music in their cart most of the day, obviously drunk, no one says anything, and this is a NorCal tourney? All in all a terrible golf outing.

This course is a lot of fun to play. Beautiful surroundings, challenging but fair, and the course was in excellent shape. Really nice practice area with a great short game area. On the driving range there were green like areas to hit too which I really like. Had breakfast first and the chorizo and eggs were delicious and meals were substantial. Excellent customer service from the pro shop, outside services and the restaurant. Definitely want to go back again this is a course you need to see a couple of times to get it right.
