Do you love golf ?
Do you like golf ?
Do you want to learn to golf?
Ocean City has so many golf options to offer
Living in Ocean City means you can live a golf life 

Ocean City on the northernmost coast of Maryland is well named. Set on an incredibly beautiful barrier island and the mainland, Ocean City is a playground for everyone who loves the sea, beach and a boatload of activities for people who come for the big oceanfront experience - big hotels, big nightclubs, big amusements, major fishing. And golf.

When we talk golf in Ocean City, we can’t help but drop a few names. Like Jack Nicklaus, Arthur Hills, Gary Player, Pete and P.B. Dye, Dr. Michael Hurdzan, for instance.
Because OCMD boasts 17 championship courses designed by the legends of the game. Ocean City, Maryland golf courses have been recognized by Golf week, Golf Digest, and, most importantly, by golfers of all skill levels, who delight in our challenging holes and beautiful settings.

There are municipal courses like Eagle's Landing certified as an Audubon Sanctuary and revealing stunning views of Sinepuxent Bay and Assateague National Seashore. At the Links at Lighthouse Sound in Bishopville designed by Arthur Hills the views are of the Bay and Ocean City skyline and 10 holes border the marshlands.

For a beach town, Ocean City, Maryland boasts an unusually high population of golf courses, featuring almost two dozen accessible within a 45-minute drive.
Each one offers something a little different, from entry level courses to world-class challenges guaranteed to stump even the most seasoned scratch golfer.

Why Golf in Ocean City?
The advantage to golfing in Ocean City as opposed to, say, Myrtle Beach, is convenience. About eight million people live within a four-hour drive from the resort, meaning you won’t have to take five days off from work to accommodate a three-day golfing vacation.

When’s the Best Time to Go?

“Ocean City really is three seasons,” he said. “The spring and the fall are really golfers coming on a golf vacation, summer is vacationers who might play golf, and winter is whoever lives here.
The typical golf courses in the area actually see less traffic during the summer, when the beaches are flooded by hundreds of thousands of tourists. Then, activity picks back up during the fall, thanks to the milder temperatures – and cheaper rates all around.

Booking Your Round at the Best Time

For those who do chose to play during the summer,  activity is usually highest early in the morning, with players fitting a round in and then getting back to their families at the beach. Alternately, traffic can pick up later in the day after a long stay in the surf and sand.
The middle part of the day is usually pretty soft in the golf business during the summertime. 
Most spring and fall vacations are booked in January and February. Summer is generally considered to be much more flexible.
While traffic on the courses is much lower between Memorial Day and Labor Day, that's when golfers can often find the best value. There’s great value in the summer for golf. Each course has a coupon out there. The courses reduce their rates in the summer and it’s reduced throughout the day, with attractive twilight pricing.
As someone living in the area there is also the possibility of getting a year membership with most all the courses around.

Finding the Best Golf Course for Your Game

A round of golf can cost between $35 and $175 during the summer. Spring and fall rates are a little firmer, generally between $80 and $190 for 18 holes.

There are some very hard golf courses, and there are some fairly easy golf courses.
The overall golf season in Ocean City is generally considered to run from March through November, give or take a few rainy days during the spring.
Whatever the season, golfers will not be disappointed. Along with the wide variety of courses, the resort has plenty to offer on its own.
Once you live here you will be very pleased with the quality of golf. Ocean City pretty much has it all. You won’t be disappointed.
All of our courses are championship courses. Some are a little more scenic than others, being right on the waterways with the views and vistas of the bay, but wherever you  play you will not be disappointed.
