Take on Donald Ross at the Bay Course at Seaview Resort near Atlantic City

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Home of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, the Bay Course at Seaview Resort is probably the better known of the two championship layouts there.

This Donald Ross classic on the Jersey Shore dates back to 1914, just like the hotel, and has gone through several renovations since. Most recently, the 6,247-yard layout received new bunkers and fescue grass in 2010.

While the golf course isn't right on the ocean, it is on the bay across from Atlantic City. You get a good view of the city from the second green of the no. 1 handicap hole, a 434-yard par 4 that usually plays into the wind.

Throughout, golfers must navigate around pot bunkers, tall fescue grass and plenty of doglegs.

The golf course ends with a nice risk-reward par 5 that plays just 501 yards from the tips.

The Seaview Hotel and Golf Club is nestled in a charming seaside town and is the only golf and spa resort on the Jersey Shore. The Pines Course, one of two at the resort, is a traditional layout sculpted from scenic pinelands, offering terrain that is both scenic and challenging. The classic layout provides a straightforward round with no gimmicks, but the narrow fairways require accuracy.
Crews are hard at work on the Bay Course at the Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club. The home course of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, which will reopen in spring 2014 after the work is completed, has a tremendous golf history beyond the ladies tour. The Bay Course remains the draw, but there's much more to love at Seaview, including an inland course (Pines) and a fine historic hotel across the street.
