The Seaview Resort in Absecon sprawls across 670 acres of southern New Jersey pinelands. The resort is home to two of the oldest golf courses in New Jersey, which were both opened in 1914. The Bay Course is the better known of the two. It has a classic layout that has retained the traditional features of when it was first built. The golf course is a links-style layout with deep, high-faced pot bunkers guarded by tall grasses and contoured mounding along the small, undulating greens. It winds inward from the ocean with many holes playing towards the water, including the signature second hole. This hole is the course's most difficult but the challenge comes mostly from its length. It is the longest of the par 4s and features out-of-bounds for errant shots to the right.
