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.

Swing easy when it's breezy...

This is a fun links course.

I played a week or so after the LPGA event.
I could see they invested in the conditions, as some sod was placed in some areas. This was a nice improvement over last year.

The hills and fescue are really thick at this point, and the poison ivy is spreading fast. My only suggestion is to thin it out some.

Complete DISAPPOINTMENT

Booked 2 rounds for $95 each, which were listed as a special online rate for regular $150/round, and we were very disappointed in just about everything. The cart path only day due to rain previous night is understandable, but the paths were terribly maintained, greens bumpy and inconsistent, tee boxes torn up and ugly, poor signage so difficult to find next hole few times, not a layout of course/hole anywhere (not on tee box, or card, or in cart...?), very slow play due to a couple in front which took the ranger till back nine to figure out... I could go on but bottom line, don't waste your time or money on this place.

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.
