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.

I have played River Run several times. Our group went off first thing in the morning. The course was in good shape, but the grass was a little high due to recent significant rain. I will return.

We get a fair price for this course on Golf Now. In previous rounds at River Run, the tee times were delayed but this time they were on time with no problem. There has been a lot of rain in this area and the course was not wet but the rough is thick and long . Greens were average speed.. It’s a public course so you have some foursomes who insist on playing from the back tees whether their games are up to it or not. This does delay play. Enjoyable course.

i've played the course a few times. This was the best condition that i've seen the course. The greens were in great shape! As well as the fairways! If you're on a golf trip to Ocean City, MD, make sure River Run is on your list of courses to play!

asked for a medical due to a tear in my knee. Could not do it but allowed 5 people play in front of us. Which was fine because it took over 5 1/2 hours to play the round. Have played there many times before don't know if I'll go back any time soon. Cart path only don't see why I could not get at least a 90 degree.

All the fairways were covered in clumps of cut grass , you had to look underneath the clumps of grass. I’m Handicapped with walking problems, it was cart path only.

I play River Run often and have never experienced the wet conditions like what we just played in. Its been over a week since our last rain and you would have thought it rained the night before. Not my best day at River Run, conditions tough, rough was like US Open conditions due to lack of cutting the grass. It was cart path only and very slow, probably a large part in the cart path only requirement. The greens were the best part, rolled great.
