About Seaview Hotel and Golf Club 

Set on 670 acres of Galloway, N.J., coast and woodlands, Seaview is home to two world-class  golf courses and a 296-room hotel. The Bay Course opened in 1914 and was designed by Hugh  Wilson and Donald Ross. The 6,300-yard layout is less a test of length, and more a test of  imagination, accuracy and short game. The Bay Course presents a Scottish-links feel, dramatic  seaside views, deep pot bunkers and small undulating greens. It is the current host of the  ShopRite LPGA Classic, as well as nine holes of the 1942 PGA Championship. 

The Pines Course opened in 1929 and was designed by William Flynn and Howard Toomey.  Unlike the Bay Course, the Pines winds its way through New Jersey woodlands, presenting  elevation changes and bountiful doglegs. The course measures 6,800 yards, and it features large  bunkers and expansive, sloping greens. The 16th hole was the site of Sam Snead’s miraculous 60- foot chip-in to win the 1942 PGA Championship – his first major.
