This course is truly amazing. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones, so what more can you say. The course is very challenging with some very long par fours and somewhat narrow fairways.

The fairways are so well-maintained that it is difficult to make a bad shot. Seriously, it is like taking a shot off a carpet. This is the easiest course to hit down on the ball with your irons.

I had a lot of bad holes because I was not familiar with the course. Now that I have a better understanding of the layout, I can’t wait to get back here and play again to see if I could knock a few strokes off my round

Had a wonderful day of golf at Ocean Pines, Berlin, MD. As noted course was in great shape, weather a bit overcast but perfect.

Great value for the money, especially with other area courses charging twice, or more, for greens fees.

Only negative would be having additional information detailing some holes on the course. Couple of blind shots and water coming into play. Didn't recall from previous time playing.
