Good course, bad conditions

Looks like a lack of upkeep by the staff this year. Course value at $48 on a weekday is terrible. Worth it for the hot deal but no way I would pay normal price for these conditions. Been playing here for a little while now and won't be back until they clean it up. Horrible greens on almost every hole and blatant lack of grass cutting in many locations. Been a tough few weeks with the rain but no excuse as surrounding courses are in much better shape.

Late autumn friendly round

Played as a twosome and had the course pretty much to ourselves. Just out to test some irons. Course was set up with temporary fees and had recent paving of cart path and aeration ofgreens. Will be fine by spring. Good local course. Not a destination course by any means but quite comfortable, if that makes sense. .

Great course

I scored the 12pm tee time for 17 bucks. Cant beat that. The course was in great shape for being almost winter. Tee boxes were moved forward to help the normal tee boxes to regrow and fill out before spring. Windy conditions caused the course and greens to have alot of leaves on it but what can you expect when you play in 30mph winds. Overall a great day. Any day golfing is a better day than being at work.

fairways need work

The course layout is enjoyable, and you're treated to some scenic views of the Wicomico river. The greens were in good shape and the traps have mostly just been refilled with excellent sand. The problem is the condition of the fairways; they were simply not in good shape. Hopefully, as warm weather arrives management will work on making the fairways more conducive to a good round of golf.

First Golfnow.com Experience

This was the first time that I used Golfnow.com, it was simple and the price to play couldn't be beat. The $12.00 to play 18 with cart was great, the $3.49 fee was a little more than it should had been. We were able to play in 2.5 hours since no one else was on the course. The course had all tee boxes moved up for the winter, and there was a course rule to pull out of the bunkers due to the extreme wetness due to all of the rain that we have received this year. Other than that the experience was great.

Can't go wrong for $15!

Southern Maryland has been decimated with an incredible amount of rain and Wicomico has done the best they can moving all the rain, and being able to play early January is a bonus and not a regular event.

So for now, you will be teeing off on temporary tees, not the tee box. The greens are also under heavy sanding, so give it a couple weeks.

But for $15 with a cart, we'll worth my day

Well worth a round!

Loved the course. Some very challenging holes with reasonably fast greens and some tough to read pin placements. Will certainly play again. This round was a Hot Deal.

Slow greens

Ok course if you are in the area. Greens were very slow and had a grass growing in them that didn't belong. Fairways and tee boxes were in good shape. I would play again when passing through the area.

BEAUTIFUL COURSE

BEAUTIFUL course! I'm a beginner golfer and even though I didn't score well, I loved this course and I'll be back any time I'm in the area. The staff is VERY friendly and welcoming. I liked it so much I bought one of their shirts. That ought to say something more about it than the few words I've typed here.

Great Muni

Wicomico Shores is county owned and operated. Patty the professional always insures that everyone is treated well and have a great experience.
My group is rather large (12 -16) on a given weekend and there is never a problem accommodating us.
Fairways were in good shape. Numbers 11 & 15 were cart path only due to being soft, but with the large amount of rain we have had in Southern Maryland the past month, it can be expected.
Greens/Tee Boxes were in great shape. Traps not so good, but again, with the large amount of rain, they were still very wet, with some puddles.
Highly recommend that you play this course and bring them your business. You won't be disappointed.
