Galloway, NJ's 100 yr. old Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club prepares for its next century as one of the premier golf resort destinations
Golf season is now officially underway, the 100-year old Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, located in Galloway NJ, is now preparing for its next century as one of the premier golf resort destinations in the Northeast.
Seaview, home to the ShopRite LPGA Classic which takes place from May 25-31, boasts an unrivaled golf history in the region, having hosted presidents, movie stars, royalty, entertainers and of course professional golfers, including some of the game’s greatest players such as Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Nancy Lopez, Annika Sorenstam and Betsy King, among many others. Most notably, the Bay Course hosted the 1942 PGA Championship where the legendary Sam Snead holed a spectacular 60-foot chip shot on the 37th hole to secure a 2-1 victory over Jim Turnesa and capture the first of his seven major championships.
“There is so much history to Seaview during the past 100 years it’s hard to know where to start sometimes,” said Brian Rashley, Director of Golf, Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club. “When people golf here, they know they are playing where legends played, and where the world’s best women players compete each year when we host the ShopRite LPGA Classic. There’s no place like Seaview in the Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia region.”
Located just minutes from Atlantic City, Seaview’s unique and historical resort setting is home to 36 holes of championship golf on two of New Jersey’s oldest and most prestigious golf courses. The links-style Bay Course, site of ShopRite LPGA Classic, was designed by legendary architect Donald Ross, while the critically acclaimed and newly renovated Pines Course, with its scenic parkland setting, showcases the inherent beauty of Southern New Jersey’s pine forest landscape.
Complementing the golf experience at Seaview is a quintessential seaside resort updated with modern elegance and located on over 670 wooded acres of pinelands. Nestled against the New Jersey Shore’s pristine Reed’s Bay – Seaview features 270 guestrooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa and 27,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
