Ocean City Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf. The Seaside Course opened in 1959 and it was later joined by the Newport Bay Course. Both offer scenic views of the surrounding marshes and bay. Newport Bay is a formidable challenge but it will test your ability to think strategically, not your distance. Strategically placed bunkers come into play and the subtle contours of the landscape were utilized to their full extent. The course is a formidable test but it is player friendly enough to appeal to all skill levels. The golf course also touts some of the most scenic views on the Mid-Atlantic coast, although the surroundings are more Carolinian in feel. Both of Ocean City's courses offer something different. Seaside has a more traditional design but both offer plenty of variety.

This course is usually a great course

This course is usually a great course But this time it looked like it was in bad shape most of the greens were aerated play was very slow it look like a beat up course not been taken care of as it has been in the past maybe it’s a Covid pandemic problem I don’t know but those was very disappointed

Very scenic course

Great course. Disappointed in the cart path only rule for the day.. Staff said reason was they had just over-seeded. Would not allow an exception for my 83 year old handicapped father.

Beautiful course!! NO EMPLOYEES WEAR MASKS!!

Another awesome course in Berlin MD!! Loved it. Is challenging in places but the fairways are pretty wide and not much tall grass at all. Amazing views. BUT absolutely no employees AT ALL (inside even!) Wearing masks. Unacceptable. The pro shop guy I believe did have one maybe but neither of the two bartenders did and starters and Two beverage cart people Did not.

Great Potential

Great layout with very scenic views on a few holes. This could be a top course with some attention to detail and investment. The driving range is horrible and needs new mats. The fairways were over watered and very soggy. This was supposedly the result of recent over seeding but there is no need to drown grass seed and make many areas of your fairways unplayable. Greens were receptive, smooth and a little slow.

Beautiful golf course; great experience

I thoroughly enjoyed playing the Newport Bay course. I was fortunate to get a “Hot Deal” from GolfNow and paid $69 plus the fee instead of $89. But the course is worth $89. All staff were were friendly and efficient and I played with 3 very nice gentlemen. The course is in great shape and the views cannot be beaten. Will definitely recommend this facility and hope to come back to play.
