River Run Golf Course
River Run Golf Club in Ocean City is just minutes away from the beach. The golf course has different front and back nines that make for an interesting round. This Gary Player design starts out across a wide-open landscape before moving on to more tree-lined terrain on the backside. The tighter back nine is tougher than the first nine but overall it's an approachable golf course. The player-friendly layout is gentle enough for beginners with medium-sized greens that aren't especially difficult and generous fairways that offer plenty of room. There is modest bunkering along the greens and fairways and a few lakes and some marshland come into play as well. While River Run Golf Club may not be the most formidable test, the course provides just enough of a challenge for scratch golfers.

Good round - one to play in OC
The course was in excellent condition, best I've seen since I've been going to River Run. It's a staple of OC, even in the pandemic to get a good round at a decent price.
Expensive- Not Informed Only 9 Holes Would Be Open
After paying a high fee of 40 dollars to play this course and finding out that only 9 holes were open today was extremely disappointing. There was not advertisements saying that the course wouldn’t be available. Extremely disappointed in the course for not supplying that info when booking.
Great golf in January
Played River Run today in beautiful January weather. Course in great shape considering time of the year. Pro-shop welcoming. Highly recommend playing if your in the Delmarva area.
Great great course as always...took a first timer with me and we had a blast...will be back soon !!!
Could not have asked for a better experience with great company on a beautiful day! Course was in beautiful condition and very clean of fall debris (leaves & needles). Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Pace of play was excellent as we hardly saw another golfer.
River Run Review
Tee boxes good. Fairways good. Rough too high; made for slow play especially on the back 9. Greens good. Worth the effort.
River Run Excellent
The staff was great upon arrival. The course was in perfect shape. Highly recommend this course.
Way overpriced for conditions
The condition of the course was horrible. No fairways . If Gary Player ever came back to this property, he would not want his name associated with this course. Greatly disappointed.
The course was in bad shape. Overpaid for value. Had to play the back nine twice. Front nine being aerated. No one told us.
This is a beautiful course in many ways, but the fairways were in poor condition! There are many large areas without grass - in the middle of the fairway! The course starter and clubhouse staff are exceptional!
Always loved this course, BUT
I have always loved this course. Not the most difficult, but the layout is nice and it was always groomed and kept well. It's been two years since the last time I played here and I was very disappointed with the condition. The tees were shaggy and the fairways were severely damaged - not from play, but from poor maintenance. It did look like they are working on the problems. The grass can be grown back and properly groomed, hopefully they are addressing and curing the underlying issues...
Fun fun fun
The course is well designed forcing golfers to use every shot and club in their bag. Driving areas ranged from tight to wide but always ending with a lie that challenged your shot. Even on the fairway the ball could be uphill, downhill, below or above your feet. Always hitting into a well protected green. Challenging but fair. Staff could not have been better and the free practice range is a huge plus in my opinion. Fairways were in tough conditions in many spots but we haven’t had the best weather so I’ll give some forgiveness. Must play course.
