Seaview Golf Resort, located outside Atlantic City in New Jersey, is to spend US$1.4 million upgrading its Bay course, designed by Donald Ross, and the host of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

The resort’s Pines course will also receive attention this winter. The renovations to the two courses are part of an overall Seaview enhancement project, which is slated for completion by March 2011.

On the Bay course, all bunkers will be rebuilt, and fescue mounds along fairways will be returfed. Drainage is to be improved in key spots. The Pines course is also to see bunker work, plus some tree removal and work on cart paths.

“We are excited to begin work on this series of capital improvement projects,” said Stephen Havrilla, the resort’s director of golf. “Seaview enjoys a storied golf history, including our longstanding relationship with the LPGA, so it is essential that we always improve on the facility to continually exceed the expectations of our golfing customers, as well as resort guests and visitors overall.”
