Seaview – The Pines Course


Make sure to bring all your clubs before playing at Seaview - The Pines Course as this course offers a very challenging game. The 18-hole, par 71 easily walkable golf course was designed by William Flynn and Howard Toomey. Originally, it was a 9-hole course then an additional 9-hole course was added. This addition resulted to the combination of the two separate courses forming Seaview - The Pines Course. The golf course opened in 1929.

The Pines course is 6,731 yards with a slope rating of 128 and course rating of 71.7. Over the years, the course has maintained its quiet location and pretty layout which is preferred by some golfers. Fairways are tight with tall oak trees, undulating greens and tactically placed bunkers. Intended to make the condition of the course to withstand the extreme weather as well as diseases, the greens which serves as the primary rough was changed to Kentucky Bluegrass and Bent grass.

Be cautious of the course’s signature hole, par-5 ninth, as water hazards and sand bunker come into play. Golfers who wanted a risk-and-reward test will be thrilled at the dogleg left 17th which is right angled and has bunker at the turn. Another interesting characteristic of this course comes into play at par 3s which are back-to-back on Nos. 15 and 16. The yardages of the holes are 236 and 219 from the back tees, respectively.

The course received several awards including "Places to Play" and “4 Stars” by Golf Digest’s and "Top 20 Golf Resorts in the World" by Vacations Ownership T&L Golf Magazine. It is also a three-time recipient of “Silver Medal” from Golf Magazine. It also received recognition for four consecutive years from Golf For Women Magazine as “Top 100 Women-Friendly Courses in North America.” It also has been listed rank three by T&L Golf Magazine as one of the "World’s Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic."
