We are excited to announce that Bayonet Black Horse has recently joined the Troon family. It’s an iconic property that we hope you can travel to and experience this year! Here is a little history about the courses.
Traveling north along the Pacific Coast Highway from the resort community of Monterey lies the city of Seaside. In the heart of this city, the U.S. Army purchased a tract of land to be used as a training facility, which was named Fort Ord in honor of General Edward Otho Cresap Ord, a famed Civil War Veteran.
It was upon this great land that General Robert B. McClure constructed the Bayonet Golf Course in 1954. Bayonet was named after the 7th Infantry “Light Fighter” Division (nicknamed the “Bayonet Division”). It has been said that General McClure was a “left-handed” golfer with an all too common fade. The General managed to effectively reduce his handicap with a little creative architecture in the design of the Bayonet Golf Course. Holes 11 through 15, a series of sharp doglegs, widely known as “Combat Corner” are interrupted only by a 226-yard uphill par 3.
