Traveling Golfer Takes a Step Back in History with Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club

(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) - For more than 100 years the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club has made golf history in the Greater Atlantic City area. With the Bay Course, designed by Donald Ross, and the Pines Course, designed by William Flynn, golf history has been shaped by the hosting of the 1942 PGA Championship and the current hosting of the ShopRite LPGA Championship.
Viewers will relive that history, plus get an inside look at the luxurious hotel accommodations on the award-winning Traveling Golfer television show throughout the month of October.
Seaview, with all of its rich history, is now owned by Stockton University. The hotel and golf courses serve as an integral part of the curriculum for Stockton's school of hotel management and hospitality. The hotel is managed by Dolce, while the golf courses are managed by Troon Golf.
The Traveling Golfer takes viewers on a historic trip around the two very diverse golf courses. It also takes them inside the historic clubhouse and acquaints them with the many amenities of the Seaview Resort.
"Seaview has been one of my favorite stops at the Jersey Shore for years," said Traveling Golfer host Tony Leodora. "I have seen it evolve from the old days as a private club, through the transition to a resort, to today's model as one of the great historic resorts in America. I never get tired of telling its story."

Seaview director of golf Brian Rashley summed up the sentiments of all who are involved in the recent resurgence of the property when he said, "Whether it is the first time visitor or the longtime repeat customer, the reaction is the same. When people come to Seaview they seem to slip into the relaxed nature of the property and enjoy every minute of their visit. We hear the same positive reaction to the experience, over and over."
The episode from Stockton Seaview Resort begins airing October 1 and runs throughout the month on The Traveling Golfer Network of websites ... including The Golf Director Network (see full list of sites on It also will air on Monday, October 12 as part of the Press Box television show in Myrtle Beach, 5 to 7 p.m. on HTC Ch. 4.

As part of every Traveling Golfer show, there is the additional attraction of the "Tech Talk" segment, hosted by Tour Edge Golf President Dave Glod. With years of experience as a clubmaker, Glod presents an inside look at the research and development of high-quality golf equipment.
Responding to golfers' never-ending demands to learn more about interesting golf courses and golf resorts across the country and around the world, well-traveled host Tony Leodora created the Traveling Golfer so he could take viewers on video golf trips to some of the most exciting golf locations. The show won a first place award for golf television broadcasts in the prestigious International Network of Golf Media Awards, presented at the PGA Merchandise Show in January.
