Rating 71.0

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.

Great place to play. Too many of the beach courses think way too much of themselves, charging absurd rates. OC Golf Course (Newport) is great. The other one there is just ok.

Great course

This would be a really great course for none it's not at all women friendlu the red teas are usually right beside the white tees
If only men are playing in your group it's fine but for women unless you are able to hit as far as men it is very difficult
