Great test of golf greens fast and true would play again
Had a good time. Pace was slow but it was a beautiful day so it wasn’t so bad. Pin positions were brutal
Great views but tough greens.
I played this Friday for the first time and it was a fun round. The course was in good shape and the weather was nice. My only advice for anyone else who might want to go here is to not expect to score well. The greens are undulating, difficult to read, and very punishing if you're in the wrong spot. I would need to play this at least a few more times to do well.
Excellent conditions at Blackhorse
Played on Saturday and the day could not have been better. Started right on time and our foursome played the course in 4 hours. Staff and starter were friendly and helpful. When you play here, try to make time to warm-up. The practice facility is first-rate. The greens are hard, fast, and true. Bunkers are also in good shape. I have played this course many times and have never seen it in better condition. There's a lot of great golf in Monterey, but Blackhorse/Bayonet continues to be one of my favorites(and it will test your game)!
Great course had a great time
I played black horse around noon and was paired with a two some and a single. The single played just the front nine. Several groups in front so it was going to be tough getting a quick round on a normally empty Tuesday. But the course was in good condition and we had a lot of fun. Water bottles available on the tenth tee so don't miss it. Tall trees line most of the holes, great fairways and fast greens some may need a little repair here and there. Overall a great time to be had at this 36 hole golf course!
Fairways were a little thin. Overall a good course but a little expensive.
Good day @ Black Horse
Great day playing Black Horse. Pretty challenging and fun! Other than the long grass in the rough on the back 9 I’m really satisfied ! Not much to complain about! Great day?
Pretend you wanted to simply get away. And when you did. You complained about the fairway. And the Green. Only when you where done you realized it was you and everything else between. Was like remembering to take a taking a deep breath. And it was the best dang course you have ever played.
The course layout is outstanding- all aspects were in great shape except the Sand traps - could use some attention and grooming. Beautiful course, with very challenging greens.
This is nothing more than a $25 muny course. No water on the course. Porta pottys
No refreshment cart. No ranger. Tee boxes and fairways in horrible condition. My friend and I have played over 200 courses from Maui to Maine. This is by far the biggest rip off. Don't waste your time and money.
A day at Black Horse
The fairways were spacious that is the good news. The greens quite undulating that is the bad. Otherwise the course well manicured!!
BLACK HORSE COURSE
Played Black Horse for the first time. I have played Bayonet several times. Black Horse is very difficult. I don't know that it is much easier than Bayonet. The Marine air and soft conditions mean less distance and not much roll. I have a 3 handicap and shot 78. The course played very long today. Short irons don't seem to go far. Probably more wind up high than you think at times. Greens were soft and fairly quick. They were sanded not long ago. Lot of undulations and hard to sink mid to long range putts. Seems like you never get an easy straight putt. Love the course but I think I would have more fun playing the blue tees next time. Black tees just beat you up after a while.
spirit of golf
Bayonet is probably more challenging, but Black Horse is no push-over. Hit about half the greens in reg., but could never find a pitch mark - this is not a complaint - just testament to near-perfect condition(the entire area is sand-based soil). The bunkering for this (& Bayo.) is testing- plan on having to get out of a few during your round. On a day when it was 90 degrees just four miles away, we were playing through ground hugging marine layer, blowing in from Monterey Bay; sun peeked through for last three holes.Fantastic!
Born and raised in Santa Cruz CA. Never could afford to play this course when I was younger. I recently moved to NY city and have been there for the last 3 years. Came back to California for the first time hoping for a enjoyable round with my friends I haven’t seen in years at a course I’ve never been able to play.
The course was slow. We had slow groups in front of us holding us up. We remained calm and cool even though the group behind us was constantly hitting into us, even came close to hitting our cart a few times. When they arrived at the hole we were teeing off they would make comments about our shots and try to hassle us to keep moving. Even though the group in front was holding us up.
At one point the Marshall came up and began to tell us we need to pick up the pace even though we were on point. We tried to explain and he didn’t want anything to do with us. I was offended and extremely disappointed in this round. I will never come back
Greens were horrible! Extreme undulation and NO grass on them. Extremely fast. Very confusing between 7 and 8. Should be better signs for directions!!!
