Bayonet Black Horse Announces New "Stay and Play" Packages

'Best 36-Holes' on Monterey Peninsula Partners with Premier Area Resorts, Hotels

(SEASIDE, Calif.) - Bayonet Black Horse, fresh off a multi-year, multi-million dollar renovation by Bates Golf Design, announces new "stay and play" packages with several premier area resorts and hotels.

Bayonet Black Horse has partnered with Sanctuary Beach Resort, Casa Munras Hotel and Embassy Suites -- Seaside to offer packages at a variety of price points. These flexible, consumer-friendly deals rival any in the region and make a trip to the Monterey Peninsula a realistic option for a wide range of golfers.

Through May 1, Sanctuary Beach Resort in Marina is offering a package for Dune View rooms at $189 / night (Sunday through Thursday) and $259 / night (Friday and Saturday); and Ocean View rooms at $219 / night (Sunday through Thursday) and $299 (Friday and Saturday). Price includes one 18-hole greens fee, cart and range balls, but does not include tax. Limited availability and certain black-out dates apply.

Monterey's Casa Munras Hotel is featuring a weekday rate of $189 and weekend rate of $239 (single / double occupancy) for accommodations and golf at Bayonet Black Horse (including one 18-hole greens fee, cart and range balls) through May 6, except for black-out dates of February 11-15, April 16-19 and April 23-26.

The Embassy Suites -- Seaside package runs until June 25 and costs $255 on weekdays and $305 on weekends (single / double occupancy). This pricing includes one 18-hole greens fee, cart and range balls at Bayonet Black Horse, plus cooked to order breakfast and buffet at the hotel, two-hour manager reception and USA Today delivered to the room. Black-out dates are February 12-15, April 16-19 and May 14-17.

"Our partnerships with Sanctuary Beach Resort, Casa Munras and Embassy Suites are important to our strategy of enticing out-of-town golfers to experience the fantastic views, ideal playing conditions and enjoyable challenge afforded by both our courses," says Dick Fitzgerald, director for Seaside Resort Development, the entity spearheading the renovation of the golf courses and additional property enhancement. "We offer a varied selection of accommodation options so visitors can make a trip to Bayonet Black Horse as luxurious or value-oriented as they see fit."

All 36 holes at Bayonet Black Horse re-opened in December after the $13 million renovation by award-winning golf course architect Gene Bates. Among the many changes to both layouts are dramatic alterations to view sheds and hole routings to reveal breathtaking ocean vistas and improve playing options; and replacing invasive kikuyu and poa annua grasses on the tees, fairways and greens with the preferred Jacklin T1 Bentgrass, a rarity for the region that will ensure the best lies and smoothest putting surfaces on the Peninsula.
