Ocean City Golf Club offers two championship courses: Newport Bay and Seaside. Opened in 1959, the Seaside Course is the club's original layout and since opening it has remained an Eastern shore favorite. It has a more traditional design than the other course, which underwent a renovation and rebuild. Seaside offers classic greens tightly lined with bunkers that are balanced with wide-open, player-friendly fairways. It is a challenging but playable test that is popular amongst locals. Five sets of tees make it even more approachable. The views of the marshes and bay, as well as the trees, give the course the feel of one in the Carolinas. In addition to the two courses, Ocean City Golf Club also offers a driving range and putting green before teeing off.

My New Home Course

Best value for your dollar, and it’s not even close. This course (Seaside) is absolutely beautiful and the staff keeps it in amazing shape. I’m down here about 6 weeks a year and this will be my go to course.

Decent Course

Seaside Course is a nice warm up track, most hazards do not come into play from the white tees. Pace of play was great, greens smooth & true, rough not too penal. They could use a little better signage, but you learn quickly. If you need a good warm up round before playing the tougher courses in the area I highly recommend this course, bag drop & club house very friendly, I will return to try the Newport Bay Course.

Refusal to allow social distancing

They insisted I ride in a golf cart with a total stranger and refused to allow for social distancing. I had no choice but to leave. I’m 60
They said the CDC recommendations are not required

Nice course

I thought the course was in good shape, play was a little slow because of the group in front of us. Needed accuracy because I seemed to be under a tree most of the day.

First time on this track

Nice course, it was in great shape. Good thing I had my range finder because there was nothing on the card or tee box that showed the layout of the holes.

Played with some locals which helped but overall would recommend playing!

Tough for me

I never played here before. The Newport Bay course was well maintained and staff were accomodating. I am a 20 handicap. I played the white tees with significant difficulty.; Many holes are near marshes with a significant number of water hazzards, fairway bunkers abound. Greens were pretty fast and rarely flat. There was a foursome in front of my partner, and I that clearly watch too much TV golf. Much squatting,surveying, circling the green multiple times only to 4 putt frequently. We played behind them for 18 holes with no offer to play through. I was thrilled with my 100. It could have been much worse.

They have improved the course!

Played this course last year and it was ok but they have improved the fairways, bunkers and greens. This year in spite the the wetter conditions it was a pleasure to play. Only problem was the amount of leaves on the rough so lost balls when shouldn't have. Maybe run the blower more often?

Seaside is a challenge

Had to move over to Seaside course today due to an outing and conditions were great and greens were excellent. The course layout is old school with tree lined doglegs and challenging smaller and undulating greens. If you are in the correct position the holes are accessible but tough to hit from wrong spot off the tee. Had a great day as pace was quick and never had to wait.

An excellent course and friendly staff

I have played this course at least 10 times in the past few years, and always enjoy playing either of the two nine whole courses. The staff is friendly and helpful making your outing something worthwhile. I would recommend this course to anyone planning a trip to Ocean City Md . The area offers many courses , but this two course facility is a true gem!
