Bayonne is a superb links layout in the shadows of Wall Street. The port sits in the river and creates views more of a Ship Yard. But it is a wonderful layout. Tee to green it is flawless. A great mix of elevation changes and dynamic holes. The rub is the greens. When you are on the 6th hole and your caddy says I don't think you can leave this putt near the hole, and this is the 3rd time you have heard this . . . . really! The greens have entirely too much hill and Valley. They keep the green speed down specifically because of this. If the greens were leveled out a bit this would be spectacular. Best analogy is Castle St Andrews upon opening. Superb clubhouse and very welcoming club. If you get the chance , play it. Walking only caddy required.
