This Course is in decline. The standard "we've had a hard winter" doesn't apply to potholes in the cart paths
and many traps completely devoid of sand. What is the plan to return this course to it's former condition? (for a how to, see Royal Manchester Links in York, Pa for how to keep the public informed!) The lack of attention to condition suggests this course is headed for building lots. I hope this isn't the case.

The golf course was in bad condition. The Starter said the rough was bad. When we played not only was the rough burnt but the fairways were in terrible condition. The driving range was not up to pat.
Not worth the money. There are plenty of other golf courses to play in the area

For a course of this stature (rates, facilities, etc.), I found the bunkers to be in very poor condition. It felt like I was hitting out of dirt and hardpan. It looked like the course was going through some type of renovation/remodeling but that was never mentioned to me. Overall I enjoyed the layout and would probably play here again if it was within some type golf package, but I would not pay full price.

Just played a round here, and the course is in awful condition. The fairways and rough are lost. They said had a bad winter, this course was in worse shape then most muni courses. For the money they charge too. Play anywhere else, rums pointe, light house, bayside all course in great condition and worth the money

What a pleasant surprise...a beautiful course with very well maintained fairways and greens. It's fun and challenging course. Some holes are even more challenging due to more undulations on fairway than green. Finding myself amazed by scenic beauty. Definately want to play again next time I visit Ocean City.

Enjoyed Man O' War a lot. Staff fantastic. Cart GPS and cover and free range balls a great bonus. Only downside was greens had been recently aerated and weren't rolling very smoothly at all. Still a good value through GolfNow. Loved the design and everything else about it. Will be back next time I'm in OC.

We loved this course , player friendly, you can score well here under better weather conditions 30mph wind gusts! Course was in great shape , big generous greens, putts rolled true, all the balls you could possibly need to warm up on the range, included! More courses should do that! Can't wait to play it in nice weather conditions!!

The course was in good condition, considering all the snow we just had. We played the silver tees at approximately 6000 yards. It was a little windy on the front nine, but calmer on the back nine. I would recommend this course to my friends. I have a package deal with Ruark Properties, and will be playing here in Sept.

Bermuda grass on a Links course.Enjoyed though the weather was very hot and the greens had been recently aerated. Received a surprise discount off reserved price for aerated greens. Very Nice!

The first 12 holes are straight links, while the last 6 are back in the woods and are more like Glen Riddle's other course, War Admiral. It was very windy on the day we played, which complicated club selection. The greens on both courses seems to get marked up a lot - spike marks and ball marks - a sign that the root structure isn't the greatest. But they still putted pretty well. Nice clubhouse with a Ruth's Chris Steak House as the restaurant - hard to beat that.
