Ocean City Golf Club - Newport Bay
Ocean City Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf. The Seaside Course opened in 1959 and it was later joined by the Newport Bay Course. Both offer scenic views of the surrounding marshes and bay. Newport Bay is a formidable challenge but it will test your ability to think strategically, not your distance. Strategically placed bunkers come into play and the subtle contours of the landscape were utilized to their full extent. The course is a formidable test but it is player friendly enough to appeal to all skill levels. The golf course also touts some of the most scenic views on the Mid-Atlantic coast, although the surroundings are more Carolinian in feel. Both of Ocean City's courses offer something different. Seaside has a more traditional design but both offer plenty of variety.

One of the best courses in the Ocean City area. Definitely worth what they are asking for around. Patient play with actual course conditions action
Good course with nice layout - staff unfriendly/ unhelpful
Good course. Enjoyed round. Bag drop and pro shop staff had ZERO personality. No acknowledgement from bag drop guy when we arrived and had to head to 1st tee at tee time without any help / direction from him. Ran out of range balls.
Nice practice facility otherwise. Course is a good layout allowing you to hit different tee shots.
Tee boxes were in good shape. Greens were good not great. Some seemed bumpier. Fairways were ok, brown spots here and there. In general the course conditions were not manicured but didn’t really affect play. Really just aesthetically .
I was ok with value only because we paid afternoon rate. I wouldn’t have been happy paying full price in the morning.
Scenery is pretty though. Maybe next time it will improve.
Great value for the money. Great scenery and well maintained. We were first out, a twosome and finished in 3 hours
Outstanding Golf Course!
My husband and I played here yesterday and were pleasantly surprised at both the conditions of the fairways and greens, but also the pace of play. We never waited on any shots until we reached one of the last holes and even then it was only for a few minutes. Plenty of shade for the front nine made it easier to play on a 95 degree day! Back side less shaded but the views made up for it! Would definitely return!
This was my first time playing this course and I just say it was simply amazing. Great layout, had a few easy holes to gain your confidence then they throw a challenge at you right around the corner. This course definitely demands some accuracy and thought in each shot. There are several hazards on each hole to navigate around to test your skill. I am a beginner so I found this very challenging, but I was playing with more experienced golfers and they had the same things to say, challenging, fun, definitely keeps you on your toys. The staff was friendly and helpful with any questions. The rate of play was surprisingly smooth considering it was one of the few warm days we had there in a while, the place was packed but it never held up play. I will definitely be back to this course many more times. Hopefully lose a few less balls in the waters and marshes surrounding the greens and fareways.
Wonderful day on the Newport’ course. Very good condition and the weather cooperated. Really love the views and the course layout.
This is a beautiful course with wonderful views of the marsh, wetlands and water. These make the course interesting and challenging for accuracy. Fun course and it was in good shape in mid September.
Scenic views of the bay . Course was in great shape. Challenged my game a bit. Definitely will play here again
Arguably the best bang for the golf buck at the beach. Sevearl f the other courses charge an obscene amount to play in the Summer. Note: The better course is Newport Bay, it's along the intercostal.The irony is that Seaside has no water views and is an distant 2nd to Newport.
