Bayonet/Black Horse Golf Course - Black Horse Course

About Us

The sensational new era at Black Horse is certain to provide both challenges and inspiration to golfers for generations to come. The golf course has been re-sculpted by award-winning golf course architect Gene Bates, Showcasing Bates’ elegant bunkering and graceful greens, the new Black Horse offers expanded views of the bay. Distinctively different than its previous design, Black Horse has been transformed from a series of tightly tree-lined holes to a more open, flowing and comfortable environment. Moreover, the strategic and visual impact is nonetheless developing into the ideal complement to Bayonet.

The new Black Horse is comprised of new tees, fairways, greens, and bunkering on each hole. Par remains 72 consisting of ten par 4s, four par 3s and four par 5s. It follows much of the original route, but takes several new directions, mostly notably are the 14th (par 4) and 15th (par 3).

No. 14 -- Previously the "15 hole" which was called “Cardiac Hill” for its 100-foot climb up to the green – now is far less severe. Pointed east and still uphill, the hole has changed from a slight dog-leg right to a more distinct dog-leg left. Fairway bunkers are on the left and right, with the two-tier green featuring a false front.

No. 15 is an entirely new and repositioned par 3, already noted as being one of the signature holes on the property. Facing the bay with a wide view of the water and city as its backdrop, the hole also will play into a prevailing wind. A series of bunkers protect the right side of the green, with collection areas both left and rear.
