Nice layout, especially the back nine in the woods.

Greens shaggy and very slow, but nice undulations made putting difficult. Fairways and rough is less than ideal condition; fairways needed mowing

Ocean Resorts is a "work in progress". That said, the Golf Now price to play here could not be beat!

The staff was very friendly and accomadating. The fairways and rough continue to require attention. The greens were decent. Many of the holes are fair to the average golfer and fun to play. I will return. It is a good choice if you just want to get out and hit the ball.

Great golfnow value. a few uneven sparse tee boxes. very interesting, varied layout. several short par 4s where driver should stay in bag. ample landing areas. most holes have doglegs ,right and left. one short par 5, #15, is a dead straight corridor between trees, I found intimidating; but a two-putt birdie eased my mind. greens were in excellent conditions with many undulations. one approach landed ten feet short of the hole and ended 35 feet short; and I rarely spin the ball. woould definitely play again.

Course layout is a bit challenging if you don't hit the fairways. We had a group of 5 tee off at 1230, finished the first nine in less than 2 hours. Staff member came out to 9th green to tell us that we had to pick up the pace because we only had 1.5 hours to finish before 4 pm. Sunset on Nov 12th was 450. We finished at 415!

Needless to say very unprofessional. We got the impression that this staff member had somewhere to be! If they want people off the course at a certain time, I recommend posting that with available tee times or stop allowing tee times at 12:00 pm during the Fall!

If you miss your fairway target or the green, the ball bounces or rolls on hardpan. Very little margin for error around the greens. Greens condition were ok and I really like their contour. Fairways were very patchy. Many interesting and challenging holes but too hard to save par or bogey when the ball rolls or bounces so far on misses. NEED MORE GRASS. I can break 80 on a good day but never have here because misses are penalized too severely. I really like this course and would play it more often, it's just not user friendly because of all of the above.

I read the less desirable reviews on this course, and decided to take the chance. It's really what you make of it. The course layout is great, challenging with dog legs, narrow fairways - especially the par 5 15th followed by an equally tough 16th that requires a 180 yd straight drive to stay clear of the water on the left and get past the dog leg right corner. The greens are tricky, pay close attention to the subtle slopes. Ok, the fairways are bad, just move the ball to some grass, the tee blocks also not good so find a decent spot to tee up. We had a great day of fun playing this course. If you don't like it, then go pay $75 USD on an upper scale course and knock it - but not this one for the price. Also, the clubhouse prices are very reasonable.

Love the course and layout. Very fair golf course. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were dirt wth very little grass. When the staff is aware of the condition Of the fairways, they should inform you and discount the fees.

This was my first time playing in Ocean City, MD. My son and I played around 2 and when we got in the fairway we noticed the course was in bad shape. The greens were OK. The next time I play in OC I will visit the course perform the play.

Beautiful course layout- with several challenging dog-legs. It was a shame so many of the fairways were in such bad shape. The course looks like it was hit by some turf disease and/or excessive water. Many fairways were scored and grass seed was planted; add that to the aeration/ plugging and it made for an awful round of golf. Had half a notion to request a refund. Hopefully, it will be in better shape in a year or so. I would like to play the course after it recovers.

Although the greens were in relatively good condition, the fairways and tee boxes were terrible. About 6 holes are the Mickey Mouse variety. Strange doglegs, several extremely narrow fairways and overgrown rough at this course took the pleasure out of playing golf. Friendly people at the pro shop and snack bar.
