River Run Golf Club in Ocean City is just minutes away from the beach. The golf course has different front and back nines that make for an interesting round. This Gary Player design starts out across a wide-open landscape before moving on to more tree-lined terrain on the backside. The tighter back nine is tougher than the first nine but overall it's an approachable golf course. The player-friendly layout is gentle enough for beginners with medium-sized greens that aren't especially difficult and generous fairways that offer plenty of room. There is modest bunkering along the greens and fairways and a few lakes and some marshland come into play as well. While River Run Golf Club may not be the most formidable test, the course provides just enough of a challenge for scratch golfers.

Decent but not great OC course

The course was in poor condition. Most of the tee boxes had major divots and repair marks. Fairways were in pretty good shape. Greens were average. Overall, worth the money paid since we had a 20-percent off coupon. It wouldn’t be worth the normal green fee prices. There are much better courses that are a better value in the OC area.

Very nice course, great value on Golf Now. My only two issues with the course are the amount of ball marks on greens that people do not repair and a handful of the tee boxes need some work. The course is fairly tight, target golf, and unless you are very accurate and consistent with the driver would recommend irons off of many tees. Would definitely play again and recommend playing. Cart girl was very nice and came around numerous times. Pro shop very nice apparel and staff very nice, but need a mask to enter. Glad I finally played

Average at best

I expected more out of this course for the money.
With some work this course could be really nice.
The pro shop is closed. Players can purchase items if they know exactly what it is they want. Just tell the man behind the glass. There is a restaurant at the club house and another nice snack shack at the turn. The cart girl also makes many rounds.
The tee boxes are beat up however, the fairways are mostly in good shape and the greens are slow but well kept.
I found the layout to be mostly target golf with only one or two holes requiring well though out shots. The scenery is less than spectacular with only a couple of holes offering views of the water.
If you can get a "HOT DEAL" this course is a good choice.
