Seaview - The Bay Course
The Bay Course is one of two 18-hole courses that the Seaview offers. Designed by famed golf course designer, Donald Ross, it was the first course of the resort and it is also the more famous of the two. Over the years, they made renovations but it was eventually restored to Ross' original links design.
The greens are small and undulating and the Atlantic winds definitely play a huge role in the game. The 2nd hole is the signature hole with a yardage of 432 and a par of 4 that can where the ocean serves as a hazard. Seaview's Bay Course also hosts the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Seaview Golf & Resort
Seaview never disappoints! Beautiful course with incredible views. Love it!
A great round of golf and so worth the trip!
The weather held up for most of the round as the forecast was for upper 50s and 60s with 40% chance of rain. Rain fell around the 13th hole til the end.
You'll pull up to the hotel and be sure to shop at the Pro Shop. It's well stocked. It's $6 for 45 balls on the range. You'll have to take a shuttle service to the range which is set toward the Pines course. Decent range, nothing spectacular, with just ok yellow range balls. I didn't get a chance to hit the chipping or putting greens.
The putting green by the Pro Shop is decent sized. Pretty similar to the greens on the course. The greens were in great shape on 4/22/19 after getting aerated in late March. You have to walk over the street to get the Bay Course.
Hole #2 is the gem on the course and is right on the bay overlooking the AC skyline. Awesome views!
Overall, the course was in great shape. I highly recommend playing it. The slope is 123 from the Blue tees but I think it plays way harder. There are a lot of blind tee shots. There are tough angles on most holes and as a first-time player, it was difficult to hit the fairway or catch the correct side of the fairway. The landing areas feel narrow except on the straightaway holes.
If you're caught in a deep fairway bunker, be smart. If you're caught in the greenside thick grass, be smart. But the greens are very pure, roll true, and are not super fast. They're not crazy undulated minus a few holes that are very difficult if you're on the wrong side of the green.
This is a challenging course - don't be fooled by the course rating/slope. Plays harder! Don't be fooled by the short yardage either. Plays longer too due to the winds.
If you're able to play this course, do yourself a favor and play it. I heard from a local we got paired with that the mosquitoes are pretty awful in the warm summer months. Good luck with that.
Nice course. The only issue was the greens didn't seemed to be cut which made for fuzzy and bumpy conditions. Would have been much better if rolled or cut.
I have played the Bay course several times but never played the Pines course. I’m hooked! Great layout, fabulous condition, and can’t beat the GolfNow price!!!
I know why the LPGA plays the Shoprite Tournament here. Challenging, rewarding, and makes you concentrate on every aspect of your game. Fast greens but receptive, tight lies in the fairway, heavy rough is punishing. But if you take a risk and pull it off, you are nicely rewarded. Love this course
Nice course, tougher than Pines. Links style. Cold breeze coming off the Bay made it interesting. Was told that the Bay Course was 10 degrees cooler that the Pines and they’re right across the street from each other!!
Very playable course. Very quick and tricky greens. Overall fun day
Love playing here
This course is usually out of our price range but in the off season we try and take advantage of a reduced rate. Course is not in its best condition like the summer but is better than almost anywhere else we play in the off season. Love the Bay course.
Warren was super nice and took wonderful care of us.
Course was in pretty good shape for this time of year. Greens had been recently airated making challenging greens even more difficult. Overall a great course and always fun.
Love playing this course! The views are beautiful along the bay and knowing the history of the course makes it even better. The greens were bumpy but it is the end of February so that is understandable. Our 4-some totally enjoyed the day and look forward to returning again and again!
Course was a great deal on GN. Course was in great shape and greens were lightning quick. Getting them ready for the LPGA ShopRite Classic in June I suppose. Windy and challenging course. Not long even from back tees except for a 230 yard par 3. Hit Deiver into the wind and still short lol. Highly recommended and great staff
Beautiful course. Can’t wait for Spring/Summer weather
Great Winter Golf
Had a great day on the Bay Course. Cart path only which was no fun. Would recommend walking. The course was in great shape considering the amount of rain received this year. Totally fun day of winter golf
LPGA is very lucky
What a great golf course. Very fair, not very forgiving, rewards good shots. I can see why they hold the Shoprite Classic here
Sea view bay course
Got a great online rate to play a nice day in November. Course was in great shape. Make sure your games somewhat in shape or bring a weedwacker for the fescue or your dead. Play both courses at sea view couple times a season, always nice.
