Golf Course Review Bayonet Black Horse Golf Club Seaside, CA
Reviewed by: Alex326, Monterey, Ca
What a beautiful day for golf on the peninsula. I hadn’t played Black Horse in a while and I forgot how much I love this course. I also forgot how tough it is. Numerous elevation changes along with plenty of views of the ocean make for a great afternoon of golf.
Track was in great shape tee to green. Tee boxes were easily a 9. Perfectly level, divot free and lush. Fairways were fairly lush throughout with an occasional thin area here and there.
I was in three sand traps and two were excellent but the third was a bit thin. The area around the greens offers some very tight lies. As for the greens…. Think of it as putting on a frozen diamond!! Severe undulations throughout and very fast. Most have a false front and landing a shot 1-2 feet on usually will end up 20+ feet back off the green.
Full on approach shots will generally hold but short pitch shots are a nightmare and a true test of your short game.
Sundays mid morning are a perfect time to play on the peninsula during football season so POP was just under 4 hours. Cart gal was around a few times.
Black Horse is an all around great course that will test your short game all day long!
