Golf

Stockton Seaview Golf Resort sits just outside Atlantic City proper, on a pastoral web of ocean inlets and marshes. Hugh Wilson laid out the original Bay Course in 1914 (Donald Ross designed the bunkers) as a wind-swept, links-style private club, and the boardwalk hotels and casinos slowly filled the skyline across Reeds Bay. The William Flynn-Howard C. Toomey Pines Course was added after World War I, and a combination of holes from the two courses was used for the 1942 PGA Championship, won by Sam Snead.

In more recent times, the property transitioned from private club to resort, and the LPGA Tour has played the ShopRite Classic on the Bay Course on and off for 21 years. A seven-figure resort-wide upgrade in 2006 brought things into the 21st century, but Wilson's gem is still a blast from the past. It's 6,247 yards stretched to the tips, but the wind and the penalty for missing makes even middle-iron approaches dangerous. Although the Pines doesn't get the attention of its seaside sister, it should. Longer, narrower and tougher, it has ball-stealing primary rough and is often in better shape than the salt-whipped Bay.

The ERAPPA 2014 event will be held on the Pines course at a cost of $90 per player. The day will feature transportation from the REVEL hotel to the course, continental breakfast, on course refreshments, and barbeque lunch. In a shotgun start format, players of all abilities will be challenged by this beautiful course set within the New Jersey pinelands.
