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.

Slow pace lots of temporary tees

We have played this course several times. I really like the lay out. Yesterday, the pace of play was horrible and the course had several temporary tees. When I complained I was told that it was winter conditions. That is all well and good but they are still charging top dollar. There was actually a fire in the rough on one of the holes so we could not play it. It would be great if a large entity like the Hyatt took some responsibility if a patron’s round was less then it should be!
