Rating 69.5

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.

Great play

With all that is going on in the world and states. I had a great time on a great course . The flag is raised because of virus but great greens that are fast just the way I like it, a lot of birdies out there. Can’t wait to play when I get back to AC area .

Playable Course

The bay course is very playable. Wide fairways allow for some off target drives. There are two or three short par fours, 300 yards or less, and a few longer par fours. Greens are small, quick, and undulating. Not too many flat putts.
Very nice views of Atlantic City skyline since the course backs up to the bay. This also creates some windy conditions.
Very nice course.

Winter Rates, Course on good shape.

Why go to Myrtle Beach when Sea View is open & playable. The Bay Course is in great shape for the time of year.

Amazing but replacement tees

What an amazing course to play for only $25. On a few of the par 3’s the replacement tees made the holes so short and the replacement tee boxes were just patches of mud and rough.

Oh that Donald Ross

Seaview Bay is a great layout. The fairways were so good that we hardly had to lift clean and place. Putting was challenging, the aeration was still effecting, you know, like a Chinese Checker board. The par 3 tee boxes were closed and the temporary tees diminished the holes. Hey, its mid January, I get it. Always friendly staff, cant wait to return.

Off season outing

This is a great place to play golf. The Bay course is open and forgiving for the amateur golfer yet is challenging. I can see why the LPGA has a tournament here. I was rather upset that the driving range was not open but I understand why. The want to keep the teeing areas in good shape for the prime season. Hint to members and guests, Use the mats!

CPO

Played the bay. Not sure it was wet enough for cart path only but it was cart path only. Greens were recently punched. Fast but soft and bumpy. Still don’t understand the CPO, 90 degree would have been much better. Had 2 temporary t boxes on par 3’s. Located very close and in the high rough.
