Ocean City Golf Club offers two championship courses: Newport Bay and Seaside. Opened in 1959, the Seaside Course is the club's original layout and since opening it has remained an Eastern shore favorite. It has a more traditional design than the other course, which underwent a renovation and rebuild. Seaside offers classic greens tightly lined with bunkers that are balanced with wide-open, player-friendly fairways. It is a challenging but playable test that is popular amongst locals. Five sets of tees make it even more approachable. The views of the marshes and bay, as well as the trees, give the course the feel of one in the Carolinas. In addition to the two courses, Ocean City Golf Club also offers a driving range and putting green before teeing off.

Not For Me

$85 for a round of Golf during the “off season for a course that at best is “ok”. Wasn’t worth the $$

No gps on cart, so unless u are playing with a member, navigating the course is a challenge. That would be the one thing that makes it not worth the $$. Price included 12 range balls.

Practice area is decent.

Greens in great shape. Fairways had been over seeded for winter, fair shape for October.

Not a course to bomb your driver unless u are very accurate.

Bag drop and starter clueless. Steve at the bag drop in 40 years of playing golf all the world is the rudest and nastiest individual and should never have direct contact with the public.

More like Swampside

Just disappointed we picked it cause it's called "Oceanside" and there was no ocean. Just swamps.

STW

Enjoyed the round course was in good condition but we had to play the back nine two times. Unknown at the time the Tee time was selected and scheduled didn’t know the front nine was shut down until we were advised by the starter just before our Tee time.

Ranger Harassment

Our foursome tee'd off at 11:32. While on the tee box a twosome sat waiting behind us. All four pared the first 2 holes & 3 pared 3rd. At 4th tee box ranger drove up and said we were 2 minutes off the pace and to speed up. We were 30 minutes into our round. There were 3 twosomes behind us. Starters need to learn to pair up, plus 9 of 18 holes were closed. Same starter approachesd us on back and asked "did you guys pick up the pace." We won't return to a beautiful course. Ranger--red shirt and brown beard(needs terminated). Ruined my personal best round of the summer.

Disappointing experience

The staff at the course were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the cooler got flagged. No problem. However the beverage cart that they said would be around to provide beverages was a unicorn. When it did finally appear I tried waving her down and calling but she had ear buds in so she couldn’t hear me yelling for her. How is that possible or is allowed? I mean how is the cart person going to hear customers if she has ear buds in ??
I even called the clubhouse to have the cart person meet us on a call. They said they would send her but we got ghosted. You take away our cooler then there’s nothing on the course in terms of beverages?? Very uncool..
Also the course was in rough shape. Greens were fine but we’re a little hairy. And to top it off we were forced to play the seaside back nine twice. That was totally lame

Overpriced and below average

Paid over $100 to play the back nine of the seaside course twice. Not sure why it's called seaside, every hole is on top of each other and fore calls are common. I highly recommend skipping this club and playing the others in the area. I'd rather play willow springs than play here again even if it were the same price.

Bait and switch

We’ve played this course about 6 times over the last year. Never again. We usually play Newport, but this time we tried bayside. Upon arrival we were told by the starter we’d be playing the back 9 twice. No other warning. The course is ok, but it is quite buggy. Not much water, and zero view of a “sea”. You don’t charge normal prices, and then have people play a 9 hole course twice. There’s better courses with better views and better amenities all over.

OC proposal vacation

We played the course after a rain storm the previous day. It was cart path only. The course was in good condition. We enjoyed the round and the staff. Some of the scenery was nice.

Half of the course closed

They didn’t mention that only the back 9 was open so we had to play the back 9 twice. Otherwise, average everyday course. You won’t see any of the bay or sea at “Seaside”. I would suggest to consider their other course (Newport).
