Type Resort
The Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club is Maryland's leading Eastern Shore golf course. The classic design incorporates challenging elements including sculpted bunkers and mature trees but balances them with wide, player-friendly fairways and inviting greens. Water has a prominent presence on the course with Shoal Creek meandering through the course and the Choptank River serving as a backdrop to many of the greens. The riverside golf course has the look and feel of a seaside links course. The final two holes are the golf course's most memorable. The par-3 17th requires a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large green strategically guarded by three bunkers. The 17th is a challenging and scenic hole but it only sets the scene for Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club's final hole. Touted as one of the best holes in the Mid-Atlantic region, this classic risk-reward par 5 has a bunker and the Choptank River running its entire length.

Great course and weather cooperated

The weather was to be hot and humid, but the cloud cover kept temperatures down. The course was in good condition although fairways were wet due to recent rains. The rough was very difficult due to it not being mowed. Greens were in fair shape, but speed did vary from one to another.

Good & Fun Course

I play this course 4 - 5 times a year. They're advertising $122/person on their site, this is not a $122 course, and if you're going to charge that much, at least have the course in "excellent" condition for those that may pay that much. The greens were really rough and hadn't healed from being aerated. Thanks to Golf Now only paid $45. Other than that, it's a good course to play....
