9th NCGA Mixed Championship | Bayonet/Black Horse GC | November 1-2, 2013
First played in 2005, the NCGA Mixed Championship is a two-person handicap event for male/female NCGA members. It is contested in three flights divided by handicap index: President 0-11, Director 12-17 and Secretary 18 and above. The event was traditionally held annually at Poppy Hills for the first seven years, before a change was made in 2012. In 2012, the event expanded to two separate championships played concurrently on Poppy Hills GC and Del Monte GC, with both fields playing 18 holes at each course. Going forward in 2013 there will be two mixed team championships, one held in the spring and another held in the fall.

About Bayonet GC
Named after the Army’s 7th Infantry Division – the first major unit to occupy Fort Ord, as well as the last. The famed Light Fighters (nicknamed the “Bayonet Division”) marched for the last time during inactivation ceremonies in 1993 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC).
With 7,104 yards of oak and cypress-lined fairways, Bayonet Golf Course was designed in 1954 by General Robert McClure, the Commanding Officer of the post at that time. Gen. McClure, a left-handed golfer with a severe slice, designed the course to fit his game. This is evidenced by holes #11-15, a series of sharp doglegs, widely known as “Combat Corner.” Notoriously known for its magnificently manicured, long, and narrow fairways, Bayonet is one tough, but rewarding 18-hole adventure. With four sets of tees, the course is a par 72, with a slope of 141 and a rating of 74.8.
About Black Horse GC
Named in honor of the 11th Cavalry Regiment (nicknamed “Black Horse”) which was stationed at the Presidio of Monterey from 1919-1940.
Black Horse was designed in 1964 by General Edwin Carnes, the Commanding General of Fort Ord from April 1963 until June of 1965. With the most breath-taking views of the Monterey Bay imaginable, the most recent renovations transformed Black Horse into a longer, more challenging “championship golf course.” With long rolling fairways, “championship golf tees,” and alluring panoramic views of the Monterey Bay, Black Horse will not only take your game through its paces, it will also captivate your soul. Black Horse is now 7,024 yards long, with four sets of tees; a par 72, with a slope of 141 and a rating of 73.7.
