About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6657 yards
Slope 126
Rating 71.0

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.

Great time!

It was a very hot day, but the course was in great shape! I loved the fact that it was a fair layout that made you think and challenged you to make a few shots that you may be a little uncomfortable with. I’ll be back, for sure!

Pretty course

The course was in good shape with some great views of the bay. It felt like there was some water/Marsh views from about half of the holes. I really like the clubhouse/pro shop as well. My only complaint is that there could be been more water coolers.

Enjoyable Golf

Newport Bay is an enjoyable place to play golf. The layout has several holes had expansive views of the bay as you make your way around the course. It is in very fine condition, the greens are beautiful. The staff is professional and also friendly. You feel welcome there.
I hope more golfers take advantage of this gem.

Ocean City Newport

This course was in great shape after a wet winter. This is one of my favorite courses in the lower shore and really look forward to playing. I played with a large group and play was okay, not quick but not slow. Tine wise it was just short of 4.5 hours.

Such a deal

I was pleasantly surprised by OCGC. The Newport Bay layout is very scenic and has some very challenging holes. The course was in generally good shape, although the fairways were still dormant and were light brown, instead of green (although they played fine.) I was skeptical because of the low price but our overall experience was fine and we'll definitely be back again.

Course has very scenic vistas!

Very scenic course & a great value for Ocean City area courses. Course was very crowded, but they got us off on time & played in under 4 hours on a Sunday. Beautiful views of the bay & enjoyed the layout.

Great round

I have only been playing since 2013 and have played this course one time before, the course is in very good shape for the time of year greens are in great shape as well. I shot my best score with the temperature of 41 degrees and Cary path only with course soaking wet 78 . Look out , if I can do it under these conditions how low will I go in great weather. Great layout great people . Come enjoy the course.

Worth the price

Greens were excellent, fairways haven’t turned but still easy to play from. Lot of fun, better than previous course conditions. Hope it stays that way.

Ocean City Golf Club Newport Bay

I read up on the Ocean City Golf Club Newport Bay course and knew that I wanted to play this course while I was in Ocean City. Unfortunately the Bermuda grass had not rebounded yet so it was golf cart path only. That was the only downside the rest of the course was in great shape and the greens Roald nicely. Recommend this course to everyone.
