About

Style Links
Par 71
Length 6247 yards
Slope 120
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.

Good Course

Great day, can’t control the weather. Brutal cold wind. Oh well. Par 3 tee boxes were tarped off, had to start those on some pretty rough shape driving range mats. Beautiful course.

Seaview Bay course

First time playing in some time. Overall conditions were good. White Tee boxes need some TLC. Not all up to par.
Greens are a little bumpy since aeration holes not 100% healed. Still rolled nicely.
Course is not very memorable since many holes are flat and straight.
If you can get a Golf Now special grab it. Regular rates are overpriced.

Can't go wrong

Love the course especially at the rate we paid. When they raise the rates to $190 not sure it's worth it.
