The course has recently developed a grass disease. The fairways were the worst I've ever seen in 30 years of playing there. Hopefully, the greenskeeper figures it out.

I had heard many great things about both courses at B/BH and most were true. I would have to say that the greens were a little too crazy for me and the rest of my foursome. I love a good challenge but it was all about luck on the greens. Many were saddle shaped with steep fronts and/or backs. Just couldn’t a handle on them. I preferred Bayonet of the two. Beautiful vistas on some holes, though.

The course is challenging but the greens put it over the top. Many are ruthless a couple are readable and the rest are somewhat in between. I would choose Bayonet of the two

Two great tracks, great ground crew and staff. Looking forward to full time grass range (not into mats) but a very good practice facility. Would like to have them announce start times, like most courses it's not a habit (or even done) anymore. Best deal on the peninsula by far, thanks lads.

The course was in amazing condition. I've played here many times, but never seen the greens in better shape. The weather this time of year in Monterey is the perfect conditions. Definitely get out there and play it if you can.

The red tees make the course easier for the ladies. The greens are tough. But no water on the course and it is hard to loose a ball.

Had a great time after being paired up with a couple from Oregon and a pro, practicing for the Nor Cal Pro-Am the following day.

We used different tees but we all had fun.

Black Horse is one of my favorite places to play. Pros find it tough from the Blacks...but I can choose how much I want to challenge myself. I played whites so I could make more use of my new wedge...the course...no matter the length you choose is still fun and exciting.

Tough to walk as some tees are a good drive from the greens. the original layout had 45 holes, when he was resigned they took the best 36. But player sometime get confused on where to go. I found a foursome on our 18th tee who thought they were playing the 10th.

But that is easy to forgive,

A combination of awesome golf course, friendly staff, well maintained course, complimentary water and challenging golf in an area where summer temps are 60-70 degrees when surrounding areas to the North hit 90's. Just Do It! You will not regret. Use Golf Now for better rate.

If I could play one course every single week, this one would be near the top of the list. The course conditions on the day I played were some of the nicest conditions I have experienced over the course of the past year.

The staff is extremely friendly; the holes reward good shots and penalize poor shots, which is the way a golf course should play. I enjoyed my round and always look forward to the times I get to play at Bayonet/Black Horse.

First time to play Black Horse. I had a Blast. Great course layout, entertaining greens and manageable holes. Used all my clubs in being successful on the course. I'm certain on clear days the course offers magnificent views. I look forward to playing here again soon.
