Bayonne Golf Club is a private, 18-hle golf course located in Bayonne, New Jersey, only four miles across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
The Bayonne Golf Club Golf Course opened for play in 2006. The course was designed by Eric Bergstol, who tansformed 150 acres of industrial landfill into a world class rendition of an Irish links golf course. In fact, developer and architect Eric Bergstol actually got paid to accept millions of cubic yards of sludge and construction debris, and then he fashioned the landfill into a collection of golf-smart holes that twist and tumble through man-made dunes.
Called the "most audacious golf course in the world" by Sports Illustrated, Bayonne,s links design pays 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.
Members find access to this intimate golfing club incredibly convenient. Just 15 minutes from Manhattan by car, members can also touch down on Bayonne's private helipad, or dock their own boats into the club's private marina.
Bayonne Golf Club plays to a par-71 and a maximum distance of 7,106 yards.
