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.

Nice classic course

A very pleasant course to play-designed by a master. Amenities were understandably thin and the path from hole to hole on the front nine needs work.
A very sweet course however.

Nothing beats golf by the sea

Nice layout. Beautiful design. Poorly marked, very little signage. Poorly maintained traps. Can’t find your ball 2 feet off the green. Would be an awesome track with a fore caddy.

Enjoyable place

I played while in the area and I enjoyed the round. Definitely played tough when wind came up. Conditions were excellent as was pace of play. I’m not going to say that any hole was world class or that it warrants $100 but is solid

Update to previous review

I heard from two different members of the Troon Management team and both assured me the information I received was false and single golfers will be provided there own carts. I appreciate their timely response and look forward to playing at Seaview in August.

Great course

The course was amazing. Everything was very well taken care of and there is nothing to complain about. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a lot of fescue and bunkers which made hitting fairways and greens difficult. Just like the rest of the course the views were exceptional and I will be back

Seaview Bay Course Classic Donald Ross

Great seaside Donald Ross gem. Good variety of holes. Several strategic par 4's. Great view of the AC skyline. Friendly staff, very good condition. A few bumpy greens that may be attributed to late AM starting time. Would definitely play there again!

Bad Condition. Too many blood sucking sandflies.

A golf course that charges a high price for one reason that a host of the shoprite
LPGA classic.
The green is slow due to poor care, and grass is not cut, so the ball cannot be found. I felt overwhelmed to play golf for over $100.
What s more, I couldn't play golf because the sandflies that sucked human blood ran and bite through the 18 holes.This golf course should not be opened until the golfer's blood sucking sandfly is removed.
