We've played Ocean Pines several times in the past. The layout is good and course conditions in the past have been average to good. However, after a 2 year absence we came back and the course conditions are somewhere between terrible and horrific. The rough is so high you can't find your ball unless you know almost exactly where it went. The greens were slow, bumpy, and awful. Bunkers were not raked. We were extremely disappointed. For a course that we always enjoyed playing previously, I don''t believe we will be back. I am surprised other reviews do not reflect the same sentiment. It was bad.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. Your experience at Ocean Pines is due to the extreme rainfall we've had recently. Ocean Pines Golf Club has received over 21 inches of rain in the past 14 days, 11 1/2 of which fell in the past 6 days alone. The extremely wet conditions have prevented our maintenance crew from some mowing and raking the bunkers as they normally would. We're sorry you had a disappointing round and want to let you know that what you experienced is certainly atypical. We hope you'll come back and visit us again when we haven't had to deal with such challenging weather and our course conditions are back to normal.

Played Ocean Pines with two friends. We were playing at a nice pace. We had to wait occasionally but we were moving nicely. Then we could hear thunder in the distance and by number eight the rain was too hard to finish.

I like the layout. I liked the greens which were slower than what I normally play but it was raining and it apparently rained over five inches over the past few days. It was cart path only because it was so wet so that slowed us down. All of this and I look forward to coming back to play this Robert Trent Jones layout again.

Thank you so much for your five-star review. We're glad you enjoyed our Robert Trent Jones design and that you understand that extremely wet weather (over 21 inches of rain in two weeks) has definitely had an impact upon course conditions. A stretch of dry weather should help get the course back into shape, so we hope you'll visit again when things aren't quite as wet!

We appreciate your sharing your feedback with us and apologize that course conditions weren't up to par, so to speak. We're working on coming back from some tough weeks, weather-wise, which have put a few of our greens under stress. We will be aerating the course August 21-22, which should help, and expect that in approximately two weeks after that our course conditions should be back to normal. We thank you for your continued patronage and hope you'll keep Ocean Pines Golf Club on your must-play list. Please come back and visit us again soon!

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us and with the golfing community. We are truly sorry that your experience at Ocean Pines did not meet your expectations. We've had a run of wet weather (5 inches of rain in 7 days), which has left the greens a bit softer than normal. As a result, any impact on the turf has been greater than it normally would be. We generally rely upon players to repair their ball marks, but of course those repairs don't always happen. If our maintenance crew spots the damage and is able to make a repair within the time frame when that's possible, they will. Otherwise the course repairs itself in a little bit of time. We hope you'll decide to give our Robert Trent Jones-designed course another try sometime - we'd love to have you back. In the meantime, thank you again for your comments!

For a Saturday time at 12:40, the speed of play was as expected of 4 1/2 hours. The staff was professional when we arrived and in the golf shop when checking in. The on-course beverage cart met our group frequently, at least 5 times which was excellent for a hot day.

Having played at Ocean Pines many times, the course was in good condition with one exception. The greens were significantly slower than in past years.

The clubhouse bar/grill and locker room have been redone and are very nice for a post round drink.

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We are glad you had a good experience at our course, from the time you checked in to the time you finished your round - that is always our goal. You're correct that our greens probably are playing a bit slower than normal. Because of the prolonged spell of hot, dry weather we've had, we've been trying not to stress them too much, which would result in them being slower. We appreciate your telling us about your round at our Robert Trent Jones-designed course and hope you'll come back and visit us again soon!

If you're coming down to Ocean City and haven't played for a while, I would recommend this course to be the first one you play. It has it's challenging holes, but was the most forgiving of the 3 courses we played. Greens were true, and in good shape along with the fairways and tee boxes.

Course was in decent shape given the amount of rain in the previous 24 hours, however the greens were pitifully slow. The greens are as healthy as any I've seen anywhere - full of grass - just slow as if they haven't yet started cutting them for the season.

Thank you so much for your review and sharing your feedback. The course is in great shape but we did, as you pointed out, receive an awful lot of rain, which is no doubt what caused the greens to be so slow when you played. We've had some gorgeous sunny days this week so that should help move things along. We hope you'll come back and visit when the weather is a bit fairer!
