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.

Play where the Pro’s play

Finally got to play this Ross/Flynn gem. Short by todays length standard but the greens, if tour speed, will even the scores out. Following the LPGA ladies around this course shows you how good they really are. Great October afternoon on this challenging course(Bay)
Worth the price of admission

Seaview in my rear view

Played this track a couple times in the winter of 2012 and recall not being impressed.
Now in 2021, I’m a lot less impressed after paying $125. It’s worth less than a quarter of that.

Great Track

Love the Bay. The greens were fast, even after rain. The course is in great shape. Only thing that would have made the day better is if it weren’t cart path only; although I must say it was justified.

Quick round

Had early tee time and finished in exactly 3 hours. Course was in great condition even though it was wet. 18th tee box was really beat up. Greens were fantastic and quick even in wet conditions. Starter could keep some comments to himself but rest of staff was great. I’ll be back again

Great layout

Short but challenging course. Great views. In very good shape overall- the bunkers were not great on some holes but a lot was due to the recent torrential rains. I really enjoyed this course and would definitely play here again. Reasonably priced for what it is.

Well maintained

Although heavy rains saturated the course the night before I found conditions to be very good except for the sand traps which seem to be terrible every where. It was cart path only conditions so I walked. It is a great walking course with very little elevation change. Greens were smooth and although not fast the ball rolled true. The rough was not the place to be but still at a depth where you had a chance of finding your ball. The Bay is always a challenging course to play and I keep coming back every year hoping to finally figure out the formula to play it well.
