This is a must play course in Ocean City, the amount of work and money that has been pumped into this place is incredible. Adding wood accents to bunkers, changing the look of holes from year to year and the course is always top notch. A great overall mix of links and parkland styled course, difficult but fair holes and they best fairways in Ocean City. Every green was true, tee boxes were great because of multiple tee grounds on holes. Don't pass this place by, for under 80 dollars it's a steal! And the staff is always willing to help... if you want a drink or food before or during the round grab it before 1 or after 9 they have a huge halfway house... go to Man O War at Glen Riddle it's worth it!

Club House and amenities are top notch. As soon as your on the course the rangers are very irritating. On 3 holes the rangers were in the middle of the fairway when we were on the tee box. One hole I decided to hit anyways cause he wouldn't move and I had to yell fore. When we drove up to him he was able to tell us where each ball went except the one I hit. I must of hit it beyond him and into tall grass. Beverage cart didn't show up till the 7th hole and then didn't see her until the 15th hole. Ranger was upset we stopped at the turn because of how busy the course was, we stated that we wouldn't need to stop if the beverage cart would make it around more often.

As for the course it was great.

I played a round of golf on an old links course in Ireland a few years ago, and this course reminded me of that one a lot. Wide open contoured fairways mean you can get lots of roll on your drive and shouldn't lose many balls, but it also means you'll have some funky stances down in swales or up on mounds, with tricky little pot bunkers in places you wouldn't expect. The course is in perfect shape, the staff are friendly, and for a Saturday morning we got around in good time, never waiting on a group ahead. Of the four courses I played in Ocean City, this was my favorite.

First time there for a buddies trip in May 2017. The course was GREAT. the weather... Not so much. But even in extreme rainy conditions the course was great, staff was friendly and the amenities were good. This is a challenging course made more so with the weather conditions. It is a very pretty course with a lot of challenges. I want to come back and play it again in the SUN!!!

This Course is in decline. The standard "we've had a hard winter" doesn't apply to potholes in the cart paths<br/> 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.<br/> 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.

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!

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.
