Bay Course at Seaview Resort Gets New Look
The Bay Course at Seaview Resort & Spa in Galloway, N.J., has been re-routed. The re-layout of the host site of the 2006 ShopRite LPGA Classic will enable Seaview’s golf management team to add logistical balance to the course by providing more efficient and convenient hole locations. This should benefit both resort guests and golf groups, as well spectators attending the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
The re-routing of Bay Course involved renumbering hole Nos. 9-17, thus eliminating back-to-back par-3s and par-5s as the finishing holes on both the front and back nines. The new routing also allows ShopRite Classic staff a more streamlined way to transport players to the front and back tees. With the former 17th hole now the 10th, the need to shuttle players down Route 9 – which parallels Seaview – is eliminated as the 10th tee is now closer to the first tee. This also allows tournament spectators to more easily maneuver around the course.
“Re-routing the Bay Course made a great deal of sense, as it will offer tremendous convenience to golfers when maneuvering the course, which will help to enhance pace of play and provide a greater golfing experience,” said Steve Schaller, Seaview Resort & Spa’s director of golf. “Equally important, these modifications enable our staff to run more efficient group golf outings, while also providing golf fans attending the ShopRite LPGA Classic with an enhanced layout to watch the LPGA’s best golfers compete on the Bay Course.”
