About Seaview, A Dolce Hotel

Seaview, A Dolce Hotel, was founded in 1914 as an exclusive country club. It has a long history of hosting professional golfers, presidents, rock stars and celebrities. In 1942, Sam Snead won the PGA Championship on a combination of holes of what is now Seaview's Pines and Bay courses. The Bay course, a regular host of the LPGA Tour, delivers the views beyond Reeds Bay to the Atlantic City Skyline. The hotel includes 34,500 square feet of meeting and event space, indoor and outdoor pools, three restaurants and a fitness center. The historic charm of the interior feels like a trip back in time.

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.

Disappointed

The starter told us it would a 4 1/2 hour round of golf. He didn’t tell us that there was a tournament going on The round lasted 5 hours. There was no ranger to speed up play. The last 5 holes a five some skipped ahead of us and they were not in back of us. On one of the par 3’a there were 3 foursomes waiting to tee off. The condition of the course was the worst I’ve seen it in the last 10 years. Not worth the $100 that I paid to play

Seaview Pines

Multiple temporary tee boxes for $125 round. Lots of bare spots in rough and fairways. Driving range looked like scene from Tim Cup. Overall very disappointing. Would not go back

Always clean and fun, but this time, the pace was brutal.

This course is always in tip-top shape, clean, green and easy to find your ball. The staff is friendly, check in is easy and there’s plenty of parking. Snacks and drinks are available on the course.

The fairways are a mix of wide and narrow. The greens were fast and showed signs of previous aeration. Sand traps were bright white and clean. Plenty of rakes provided for each trap.

Usually I average between 3.5-4 hours for a round of 18. This time, it was about 5 hours to complete, and unfortunately, no rangers in sight to move play along.

The second group in front of us were painfully slow. It was compounded by the group in front of us, who, on several par 5s, would not hit their second shot until the group ahead of them were off the greens. They could barely hit 200 out of the box, yet they thought they could hit the green in 2 on a par 5. This is where the ranger is needed to inform them that they need to keep up the pace, too.

A Good Value Under $75

This track is next to the bay and be prepared for cooler temps and windier conditions than you expect. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were recently aerated. The greens were very fast. The major negative was the pace of play and the tee boxes were in horrible shape, especially for this early in the season. I think it would be really appreciated by all golfers if tracks would notify you at the time of reservation that aeration has taken place or reduce the green fees.

Greens were aerated and have not recovered.

I called before booking to ask about conditions and was told by a female who answered that the course was good and greens were aerated the end of March. The greens were horrible. They have not recovered due to cool weather and made for an less than desirable round.

Enjoyable layout Spring conditions

Have played here maybe 20 times in last 5years. Greens are not grown back in from aeration so pretty bumpy and uneven. Same with rough around the greens. Some of the tee boxes were particularly damaged looking lots of tricky lies and jumpy putts but that’s springtime golf in New Jersey

Definitely still in winter conditions. Looks like they have some good tee boxes ready for the real season.
