Ocean Pines Golf Club
100 Clubhouse Dr, Ocean Pines, MD 21811
These courses, along with some 400 other courses across the country and the world, bear one thing in common – they were all touched by the skillful hand of the legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. It is said that “the sun never sets on the Robert Trent Jones Empire.” So, if you happen to find yourself in Hawaii, Brazil, France or on the beach in Ocean City, you have an opportunity to play one of the famed architect’s courses. In fact, Ocean Pines Golf Club is the only Robert Trent Jones championship course on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
River Run Golf Club & Community
11610 Masters Ln, Berlin, MD 21811
Gary Player created a course that is very enjoyable to play. The golf course is sometimes called a “tale of two nines” with its open front nine and tighter back side that winds through the timber. The course is fair for the beginner but is certainly no walk in the park for the scratch player. The greens are medium sized and not especially difficult, the fairways are generous from the tee and modestly bunkered. There are a few lakes to avoid and some marshy areas which are common when you’re only seven miles from the ocean.
Delaware is packed with plentiful kayaking adventures, from scenic canals and ponds, to leaf-shaded creeks, to broad expanses of inland bay. Kayak explorers can choose their own favorite style of fun at an amazingly diverse assortment of state parks, or browse the selection of Top Waterways that are included in the Delaware Outdoor Trail.
