Course was narrow with water on 14 of 18 holes!

They just aerated greens. Course gave us a $7 discount which was very nice of them. Golf Now should inform customers if greens have just been aerated.

One (round) and Done...

The course seems a bit over priced but everything in Ocean City is. When the organizer in our group for the outing called up to book the tee time, he was told beer would be included in the $45 green fee.

It's an open course with not many hazards but some fairways were hard to determine.

A set of clubs were rented by someone in the group and upon teeing off on one of the holes the driver head snapped off. We turned the clubs in and were charged $35 for the broken driver. Not sure if that is normal practice for a golf course but doesn't exactly seem right.

Very Misleading

My friend and I are somewhat avid golfers and have played some very nice & quality courses over time. We both are in our mid 20's and have seen our fair share of badly maintained courses. When we played here, we spent $55 on a course that should be charging $15. Greens had burnt marks all over them, sand was poorly maintained, rough was soaked, tee boxes were sometimes just dirt piles etc. We had played Rum Pointe & Baywood Greens for less than $55 the two previous days. Those two courses are prestine and this one was horrific. By the 15th hole, we cut our loses, bit the bullet and just left. Staff was rude, carts were disgusting, I could just keep going on and on. Definitely not worth the time or money. Look up better courses, plan your times to get the best deals and don't waste your breath on this place.

Nice course,weird doglegs

A nice course to play if you can get a deal on golfnow, we played for 20 bucks,there regular price was way over what it was worth. Very slow pace and on the back nine we got behind a group of six.I liked the course except for the weird doglegs.

Best thing was the golf now price

Took a chance on deer run due to a great discount on golfnow. Funky course with 19 holes, par 73. Many "fairways" could not be differentiated from the rough. Multiple tee boxes grouped together on many holes. Strange doglegs that left our group wondering where to aim. Several holes have no defined landing area. Pace of play was slow with an "8-some" in front of us. The staff was Friendly and helpful as they shuttled us around this group to try to keep things moving.

For the price we paid this course was ok, but if you're looking for a real golf experience there are many better choices in the area.,

Nice course

This course plays well.
A fairly challenging course with plenty of hazards to deal with including a variety of open and narrow fairways. My only complaint was that the mosquitoes were incredibly nasty so bug spray is essential.

Good value, but.....

This is a nice little course with some pretty interesting holes. We were pressed by a twosome and couple of singles that we let play thru. It was very hot that day and the clubhouse (?) had water problems so no bathrooms or kitchen service. Couldn't ever buy a beer! and no beverage cart on the course. We got on the course for under $20 per so we got what we paid for. Normally a pretty good golf experience.

Fun Experience for first time golfer

My girlfriend wanted to try to play her first round, so I chose this course a little further outside of Ocean City's "golf belt", hoping that a late Saturday tee time would allow us room and not slow everyone down. Needless to say, it poured rain and we had to reschedule for Sunday morning...but the course was relatively empty and we were able to play.

While very wet, there was no appreciable effect on course conditions - lush fairways, great greens, and rough that was deep but fair. The wide range of tees allowed us both to enjoy our rounds and be challenged. It is a short course, but played very long because of the wet fairways that could not be mowed Sat/Sun. The staff was wonderful, and the casual setting made for an enjoyable morning/early afternoon. I look forward to playing it again when a bit drier - it will be a whole different course.

FRom a layout standpoint, it is a strategic course - many distance decisions, and a couple of blind, unmapped water hazards (#2 front of green, #9 fairway drainage ditch). Lots of doglegs, but they all are right to left. My only criticism is the par 3's - from the white tees they all were 130-150 yards, which made for a little lack of challenge...the blue tees provide more variety in club selection. This is an excellent course for beginners - the tee locations take over-water carries out of the equation, which speeds play and reduces frustration.

Overall, a really enjoyable facility and day of golf!

Great Value

I've played the course many times since 2013 and see steady improvement in the grounds,the staff, and the F&B. It is an excellent value when purchased at the discount fees that can be found online. The only caveot to the day was the pace of play. I started on the back nine because the foursome in front of me were non players and I had a foursome on the back that did allow us to play through only to get behind a twosome that had no clue. When we finally got to the turn the skies opened unmercifully and put an end to our day. Nonetheless I would recommend the course to a friend.

The usual good experience!

I've played this course many times over past 12 years. Recent changes to certain holes, and an upgrading of the clubhouse--plus a great rate from TeeTimes.com-make this one of the better choices for golf in the area. Great staff--hospitable but not overbearing. Course is in great shape. Really, always a fun experience here, regardless of score!
