Galloway Township, New Jersey, January, 2006 – Seaview Resort & Spa, a Marriott Resort, has gone far beyond a mint on the pillow and now offers numerous golfing options for all skill levels - from beginner to advanced. Guests can participate in everything from lessons to cash prize competitions such as the Closest to Pin Competition which is held daily.

The Seaview’s brand new Closest to Pin Competition is held on the first hole of either the Bay or Pines course directly adjacent to the hotel. The contest consists of a putting competition where golfers must prove their accuracy as they shot from 50 – 150 yards away and attempt to land their ball closest to the pin. The entrance fee is only $30 per person, runs around 1-2 hours in length and has categories which range throughout skill levels.

The Closest to Pin Competition is a great way to warm up for an afternoon on the links or to take a nice break from a long day at the office. The contest is designed to be a fun way for guests to compete for a cash prize, regardless of their golfing experience. Anyone who has swung a golf club with some precision before has a legitimate chance to win and is strongly encouraged to participate.

Seaview Resort & Spa is situated on 670 pristine woodland acres and offers 36 holes of championship golf on two of New Jersey’s oldest and most prestigious courses - The Bay Course and The Pines Course. The Donald Ross-designed Bay Course is home to the ShopRite LPGA Classic. The Pines Course was designed by Toomey and Flynn and was the site of the 1942 PGA Championship. Seaview’s golf facilities also include a Faldo Golf Institute and beautifully groomed natural-grass practice facilities.

Beyond golf, Seaview Resort & Spa is southern New Jersey’s only full-service resort with a historic landmark luxury hotel, indoor swimming pool, health club, tennis courts, an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, gourmet and casual dining options. The Resort is also home to Marriott Vacation Club International’s Fairway Villas.
