Across the Hudson River from Manhattan, the Bayonne Golf Club is home to a waterfront golf course that is unlike anything this side of the Atlantic. Designed to rival the look and feel of the legendary links courses of Scotland and Ireland, this awe-inspiring course is the centerpiece of an exclusive club that has garnered countless accolades since its unveiling in 2006.

By any measure, Bayonne Golf Club is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy golf at its very best, just minutes from America’s greatest metropolis.

The Club

By invitation only, private memberships are available for those discerning few — whether they are Manhattan residents, or national or international visitors — who understand the unique privilege of retreating from the city to golf, while keeping it all in perfect view. While every effort has been made to satisfy all membership needs, Bayonne Golf Club is primarily a club for the passionate golfer who enjoys the timeless joy of playing golf on a windswept links.

The Course

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.

The Clubhouse

Designed by an award-winning architectural firm, the clubhouse has exceeded its great expectations. Located high upon the dunes, the sprawling design stands sentinel on the property, casting a magnanimous glow over the links. Replete with a full lockerroom, taproom, library, outdoor veranda, there’s no shortage of options for post-round pints or dining. Wherever it is, the attentive staff make its members feel at home.

The Golf Amenities

Not to be overlooked, Bayonne’s members have access to multiple practice facilities and expert golf instruction. The club’s four acre short game area — a nexus of chipping areas, greens, bunkers and putting greens — lets members work on every type of shot from 100 yards and in. Lessons can be arranged with the club’s talented instructional staff on any aspect of the game.


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. By far the most civilized way to get to Bayonne is by club’s private boat — a scenic 20 minute ride to the course, passing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island along the way.
