Fall is arguably the best time of year to play golf in the northeast. It’s dry, the temperature is mild and the beauty of the fall foliage cannot be matched. Combine this with a great golf course and your love of the game might just reach another level. If you are looking for a terrific fall golf getaway, look no further than the legendary Stockton Seaview Golf Resort, located in Galloway, NJ, just outside of Atlantic City.
The 100-year old resort, which is home to the annual ShopRite LPGA Classic, 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 captured the first of his seven major championships.
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 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 guest rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa and 27,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
