Donald Ross's Bay Course at the Seaview hotel near Atlantic City brings a Scottish feel and challenge

ABSECON, N.J. -- True to its name, Seaview Hotel and Golf Club is tucked away in a charming seaside town, but it is conveniently only minutes from Atlantic City.

Built in 1914, the Bay Course is the resort's original layout that was followed by the tree-lined Pines Course in 1927.

The Bay is a Donald Ross design that is the more well known of the two courses. It borders Reed's Bay, giving the Bay the feel of a Scottish seaside course. The links-style layout features classic mounding and small greens with subtle undulations. There is also a mix of deep pot bunkers and high-faced bunkers that are sometimes lined with tall fescue grasses.

One of the most challenging elements of the golf course is its openness, which makes it subject to the strong prevailing winds that come rolling off the Atlantic. The signature hole is the second, a 432-yard par 4 that can play longer or shorter depending on how the wind is blowing that day. There are two fairway bunkers to the left, out-of-bounds to the right, and water hazards to top it off. You'll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic City skyline.

Seaview's Bay Course hosted the 1942 PGA Championship, Sam Snead's first major championship victory.

Born and raised in the former Soviet Union, photographer Oleg Volovik moved to the United States in 1992 and now lives with his wife and two children in Los Angeles. He joined the TravelGolf editorial team in 2010. Originally graduated with a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering he continued to dedicate his time and energy to his passion for visual arts and photography. Oleg has extensive experience in fine arts, fashion, event, architecture and journalistic photography. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Moscow, where he also taught a master class, sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, in April 2007. He may be a novice golfer, but Oleg always wears a white leather glove during photo sessions. "Golf photography is my own 'game' with the beauty of nature and human creativity.
