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.

Got the discounted rate for two of us, Played 18 holes for $106! Course was in good playing conditions, but greens were a bit slower than expected. Well maintained course.

River Run

This course is a gem in the rough. Well laid out with difficulties tiered to any level golfer. I gave this course a 5 based on it’s playability but rated “off course amenities” a “3” because the 9th hole grill was closed.

RiverRun Impressive

The overall condition of River Run was very good. I was very impressed .The opening of the 13th hole made it very pleasing to the eye. Fairways and greens were well maintained.

Well maintained course. Worried about construction near first few holes.

Too bad if they are taking the range away to satisfy the greedy developers! Hopefully it’s not true.
