Best of 2016: Top 15 golf courses in Maryland

The best golf courses in Maryland span from courses around Ocean City to metro-Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Golfers were busy reviewing the many different options in the state, which span from resort courses to semi-private and daily fees.

To compile our state lists, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking. A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.

If you like seaside golf, the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware is your ticket. There aren't a hundred golf courses here like there are in Myrtle Beach, but the quality is just as good if not better, albeit perhaps a little more expensive. Best of all, though, for those who live in the big cities of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, it's convenient.
