The Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club is Maryland's leading Eastern Shore golf course. The classic design incorporates challenging elements including sculpted bunkers and mature trees but balances them with wide, player-friendly fairways and inviting greens. Water has a prominent presence on the course with Shoal Creek meandering through the course and the Choptank River serving as a backdrop to many of the greens. The riverside golf course has the look and feel of a seaside links course. The final two holes are the golf course's most memorable. The par-3 17th requires a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large green strategically guarded by three bunkers. The 17th is a challenging and scenic hole but it only sets the scene for Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club's final hole. Touted as one of the best holes in the Mid-Atlantic region, this classic risk-reward par 5 has a bunker and the Choptank River running its entire length.

Beautifful course in good condition

My first time here. Got a great deal for $35 when everyone else is asking at least $40 during the week. Beautiful course with a breath-taking 17 and 18. Sand nice and soft but there is plenty of it. Had a great round

Great Course Beautiful Views

This course is in great condition. Fairways were lush and green rolled true.
The views of the River and scenery were awesome.
Pace was a little slow at first, but the back was much quicker.
Got a great deal of $48 to play there today. Course usually goes in the mid 80’s. Great value today for a great course.
Must play if you are on the Shore

Not my last play here

Still winter conditions made the greens awfully slow I couldn’t get used to the whole round. In a month I will replay allowing the grass to green up and greens to be in tournament condition. Loved the layout.

Finally dried out!!!

Dried out and thankfully not cart path only anymore. Signs of grass healing also. Bunkers have been worked on too. Hopefully they will put in more spring maintenance and keep this course the beauty she is.
