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.

Historic track. Wind & weather enhance the challenge.

Bay Course was very wet from heavy 2 day rain. Cart path only so walked & carried in drizzling rain enhancing the overall experience. Greens in great rolling condition for this time of year .although course does not drain real well. Some greens were puddled around the hole. Wind off the Bay can make for extra club selection. Clubhouse and bar are charming with warm feeling of well aged elegance. Pro and staff are very friendly and accommodating. No matter the season or conditions I love playing this 1914 gem.

Best in area.

Nice course but disappointed with start. Almost always feel my GN status.a plus.. Tee off delayed as one of course’s pros gave on course lesson to three golfers as we had to watch them for six holes.

Second cut high narrowing fairways and resulting in making course difficult

Excellent time at the Bay Course

The course condition was great and pace of play was more than acceptable (round took 4hours). I love playing The Bay Course and this experience further reinforces my sentiment. A big thumbs up!

Excellent facility

Best public course at the shore without a doubt. The bay course is challenging and have wonderful scenic views of Atlantic City and the pines course is a fun and challenging layout, I feel like the pines gets a reputation bc it's "not" the bay course but it's a great course in its own right without the views and the green head flies that come with the bay course. Everything at seaview is exceptional, the food, staff, pro shop, locker rooms is all great and it truly has a old club feel which I love.

Expected more for the money

Overall the course was average. I assumed playing a couple weeks after the LPGA was there that the course would be in much better shape. There was weeds in the sand traps, lots of dead grass patches around, etc. I didn't think it was worth the $185 price tag. I have played other courses in the area for a lot cheaper and have been more satisfied. Great setting and views though...they just need to keep it up a bit better!

Not Worth the Money

Not sure why the significant price increase. Course has always been in good shape but it is definitely not worth 165$ per round. There are many other courses in the area that I would play before I played the bay again.
