This course has spectacular views! It is one of our all-time favorites. It is upscale all around. There is a restaurant for fine dining. We enjoyed the views during our meal, which was well prepared. I enjoyed the crab cakes and hubby enjoyed a well cut steak. This course has it all, including friendly staff. The only thing that we... More

Great layout! Very friendly staff! Very popular place so do yourself a favor and make a early tee time to avoid a long round. Teed off at 7:25 and finished in 4 hours 20 minutes. Large groups that play slow are common in mid to late morning which lead to 5+ hour rounds. The best course I've played in OC!

Every year a group of us go to Ocean City in the fall for a three day golf outing. We play three different course while there - but every year we play this one. The fairways are perfect (you can putt on them) the roughs are fair; the views are outstanding; the greens are consistent. The staff is very helpful.... More

My buddy and I were scheduled to play Lighthouse Sound during a recent golf trip. On the day of our round Ocean City was clobbered with a massive storm that dumped 9-12" of rain in the area, along with lightning and gale force winds. See attached pix for the radar and gale warnings. So of course we can't play and... More

We played on a very windy day, but still enjoyed it. The tees are very fair for every level of golfer.

Best Course we played in Ocean City. Pretty flat but challenging course. Open Scenic Bay Holes and also Tighter Secluded Woods Holes. Will play here again. Nice Layout and fast greens.

Came here about a year ago with a good friend of mine. It's was my second time playing here and it still lived up to expectation. We definitely play here again.

Great conditions and great staff. Pace is painful at times. Difficult holes and a layout with great distance between holes does that. Waiting on every tee will detract.
