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.

Nice Concrete Cart Paths

We played Newport 11/18/21 for the first time. Course was in very good condition for this time of year, especially greens and sand traps Not an exceptionally long course. Some challenging holes. I am a fan of the concrete cart paths.

Newport Bay review

The course is in good condition with fairways well maintained. Personnel courteous and helpful.

The course is scenic and give you a filling of being in the middle of the nature along dear and birds.

I will go back any time I have a chance. Many thanks to those who make an effort to keep the course beautiful and playable.

I have played here off and on for the past 20 years.
I would have preferred to know it was cart path only when I made my reservation.

Great Ocean City Course

Considering the amount of play during the summer in the area, this course was in excellent condition for an October round of golf. It has been very well maintained. Take advantage of this gem when visiting Ocean City.
