Seaview - The Pines Course
The lesser known of the two 18-hole courses at the Seaview is the Pines Course. It originally started as a nine-hole course but another nine-hole course was added later and the two courses were eventually combined to form the Pines Course. The course has a par of 71 and it is 6,731 yards from the back tees.
Seaview's Pine Course doesn't provide scenic views but it does offer a good game. Some even prefer the Pines course because of its quiet location behind the resort's hotel and also because of its more challenging features. The golf course has tight fairways lined with trees, medium-sized greens that are undulating, and strategically placed bunkers.

Beautiful course, great staff, good pace of play. Couldn’t ask for more.
Excellent course. Main issue is that tee boxes aren’t maintained well. We played 3 rounds in 3 days there and there was no attention to the tee boxes. This is a simple problem to fix.
always a pleasure to play the Pines course at Seaview
Great course layout. Course was in great shape from tee to green.
Play somewhere else
Perhaps I’ll play the bay course next time.
Greens were in poor shape. Check in person outside wasn’t very friendly.
This place use to be top notch. Not anymore.
Not worth the money
played this course many time it is in the worst condition I have seen it is not worth $109.00
We have played this course every year for the past 10 years or more and have seen the course condition slowly decline. This year, it was the worst. Fairways and tee boxes need work and some of the waste bunkers are overgrown, especially on hole 6. The course could be beautiful, with a little more work, like it used to be.
The course was in great shape. 7:40a tee time. 3.5 hours. Nice fairways & greens. Not too long. Really enjoyable vacation round. Dogleg left!
Crab grass not bent grass
Great staff and classic layout. Some holes are suffering from heat stress in the fairways. Also, there are a few holes that are covered in crab grass. I’m sure this can be prevented. At $109 a round, put some money back in the course.
Everything was great. Starter, pro shop staff. Got there about 20 mins before tee time and got us off early since no one was teeing off, even though we were a twilight rate. Course in great shape, greens fast but true.
Another Great Day
The crew at Seaview does a great job getting you out on time. They take you clubs from pro shop to tee box if you play the Bay Course. If playing the Pines, you’re off to the races right from the pro shop. The Pines is a little more challenging, but if you hit fairways you can score. I rate the course a solid 9. And if you can book the online 2some or 4some rates, It’s a 10!
Flies and Mosquitoes are Horrendous in Mid July, just not worth it.
I almost never write reviews but felt some notice needs to be given to prospective golfers at this course. Regarding the course, it is excellent design, you can see why a LPGA event is held here. Staff is good. They have let the rough grow up too much when there is no tournament, which slows down play considerably for no good reason. But all this is minor stuff. At the end of the day, the horse flies and mosquitoes are horrendous in mid July. It basically ruined the experience for me. I have never been bitten like that in 40 years of playing golf. I dont think there is really any spray that works on the flies. In essence, if there are no flies and mosquitoes, the place is very good, but i would stay away otherwise. I am not sure when horsefly season starts and ends.
Seaview Pines is outstanding
On a hot, humid day the trees (lots) cool the weather. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are very well maintained. The last couple times I played the pace of play was excellent.
