Coastal views galore from The Links at Lighthouse Sound near Ocean City, Maryland

BISHOPVILLE, Md. -- Designed by Arthur Hills, The Links at Lighthouse Sound is one of the most visually stunning golf courses in the Ocean City area. It's also a tale of two nines.

The front side is laid out along Assawoman Bay, with several views of the Ocean City skyline, while the back nine (starting with nine actually) meanders its way through a marsh and mature hardwoods. It's also where you'll find the longest cart bridge in America, at nearly 1,500 feet, bridging the two sides of the course. And it's one of the few golf courses in the world with a shared green on consecutive holes (2 and 3).

The Links at Lighthouse Sound also has six sets of tees, ranging from 4,553 yards to just more than 7,000.
