COURSE

COURSE INFORMATION

Called the “most audacious golf course in the world” by Sports Illustrated, Bayonne’s links design pays worthy homage to the great seaside courses of Scotland and Ireland. Twisting and tumbling, the holes weave among the towering dunes like they do at Turnberry or Ballybunion. The unique waterfront setting not only lends itself to fresh sea breezes, but dazzling views of New York Harbor’s dynamic landscape and Manhattan’s iconic skyline. The challenging course has achieved international recognition from some of the finest publications.
