Bayonne Golf Club - Jersey City, NJ

If you didn't know any better, you might think for a second that you were in Scotland or Ireland as you strolled the fairways of Bayonne Golf Club.  That would be until you glanced up and saw the Manhattan skyline in the distance.  Just a 15 minute car ride from the big city, Bayonne Golf Club opened in 2006 to rave reviews.  Although it was built on top of an old landfill, the course has done a magnificent job of recreating an authentic links experience.  

The rain began to fall as I teed off on the first hole at Bayonne Golf Club.  The good news is that the downpour would give up on about the 5th hole and I would have some time to capture some cool photos.  The downpour would start again on the 16th hole.  This time it would not be a downpour of rain but a downpour of birdies.  By downpour I just mean one birdie, but it was one glorious birdie.
