Bayonne Golf Club is the brainchild of Eric Bergstol, Founder of Empire Golf Management, who shaped Bayonne, using waste soil and rubble, from a flat industrial brown-field site to an undulating, rollercoaster, links-like course.
The result is dramatic and rather surreal as the course is located directly across the Hudson River from Wall Street where panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline create a quixotic backcloth. Bayonne is an authentic links layout and is truly reminiscent of British and Irish seaside courses with fairways tumbling through giant, man-made sand dunes and greens perched on raised plateaux. Even the seaside grasses look totally authentic.
“Dell”, “Wee Burn” and “Redan” are the names of the three opening holes with “Plateau” and “Highlands” coming into play at the turn. Surely this is not America?
November 5th 2008 – Richard Hurley commented as follows: “Bayonne will move up in the rankings to the Top 25 which it deserves. Bayonne is the best links course in the US and is the most dramatic manmade links course in the world.”
