When we were planning our golf trip to Ocean City, this was the most expensive course on the list but it was worth it!

The course is beautiful and provides a nice balance of holes "in the woods" and "on the ocean" with great views. It is not a hard course but I believe it would play differently every day based on the weather.

We did not have great weather (e.g., it was cloudy, a bit windy, the air was heavy and sprinkles off and on) but that did not dampen the fun.

The only down side was pace of play. Or more specifically, a foursome in front of us with no clue on golf etiquette and there was never a ranger on course to speak to about the guys in front of us.

I walked off the course thinking if I come back to Ocean City, I would play this course again.

Started @ 12:50 finally finished @6:40. We were paired with a couple from Montreal and they were very nice people and could play the game unfortunately the three groups in front of us were the slowest bunch we've ever seen and to go along with that couldn't pickup thier feet on the greens and never once picked up a rake / and they were in bunkers all day long sometimes for at least 8min)never fixed a ball mark on the greens. We knew we were in trouble when two from thier group took seven shots to reach the first fairway, but we never saw a ranger all day it was criminal. This has always been a nice layout But I think with all these package deals your getting the worst players and thier tearing up rum pointe. The blonde gal in the bar area was the only plus for this day as we had lunch with her before we started and everything was great until first tee which we even started behind our scheduled tee time. Won't be back here for a long time

Course was as nice as I remembered, however, I was in town on vacation and was a single. They paired me up as I requested but when I arrived the twosome didn't want anyone with them and they did nothing to Pair me with snyone else . Nice course but if you're a single don't expect them to bend over backwards to pair you up. Goes without saying pace of play horrible as single behind several foursomes.

Rum Pointe has always been in good shape. Not a big fan of several of the holes early on, which feel like they're next to a drainage pond. But once you reach #8 the bay views are nice, and you can really feel it kick up in the afternoon and affect the playing conditions. The clubhouse restaurant offers a view of golfers finishing up on 18.

We really liked this course. Beautiful, well maintained course! The staff was very nice and friendly. We didn't eat anything there so really can't review the food. Nice course, GPS in cart = we had a really enjoyable day. Price is a bit high but if you shop for a deal and are flexible with your tee times it can be really nice for the price. We played in the early afternoon for $55 but most others seemed to pay between $79 - $98 on a weekday.

Great layout and scenery and the course was in great shape. We saw bald eagle on the first hole. After our threesome played the front nine in 100 minutes it took us 2.5 hours to play the back 9. A mixed foursome with 3 carts took 2.5 hours to play the back 9 without ever waiting for a shot. They refused to let faster groups play through. It would have been worse except the staffer who cleans clubs at the 18th green sensed something was wrong when no one had come up the 18th hole for a very long time. He drove out to nudge the slow group to play faster. It didn't seem to help much but we appreciated the effort. The bar was closing as we finished. Did not get to check that out. I can't imagine too many people linger at the 19th hole after they have played a 5 hour round.

This is a great course to play and be on, for both the golf, the views, and the wildlife. Make sure you do not forget to adjust for the wind, being on the coast you get a solid breeze which can be different on every hole. Enjoy, we do every time.

Rum Pointe, in my view, is the best course in the Delmarva area. I've played all the marquee courses down here, and always come back to Rum Pointe. Views, course conditions, value....it has it all. It can play completely different from day to day according to ever present wind conditions. Spectacular views and it asks you to consider taking risks in order to score. Just a fun fair test of golf..been going there for years and will continue to.

Probably my favorite course for the money in OC. Course played excellently, even though heavy rains for the 2 days prior. Fairways dry, greens in great shape. Starter was very informative, and pro shop and servers very friendly. Make it a point to play here every time I come to OC. The only problem we had was biting flies blowing in from Assateague. Front nine was bite free, then wind shifted in the evening, to out of the East and these things got serious. Regular Off was not a deterrent.<br/> Won't keep us from going back, though.
