Ocean City in mid-April

Hey there, am considering going to Ocean City Maryland at Eastertime for a few rounds of golf as a tune-up for the new season.



A few questions:



How bad has the winter been there this year? Assuming the spring warmth will be in full swing, will courses be in decent shape by then? Any courses in worse shape than others?



Probably will book a pkg with rounds at Rum Pointe, Lighthouse Sound and maybe Bear Trap Dunes as a good starter course.



Any tips or suggestions (golf and non-golf - bars, restaurants etc.) most welcome.



Thank you

    All courses you have listed I played last season early on in May and all were in great condition. Bayside is another great course. Lighthouse was hands down my favorite course. We were able to play 44 that day with our early tee time.



    Ocean City has every bar or restaurant you could possibly think of. If you play Glen Riddle which is a 36 hole course there’s a Chris Ruth’s Steakhouse right next on the course then you have the all you can eat crab houses in OC and one of my favorite laid back places in The Green turtle

    Have a look in the mid-atlantic sub-forum as there are several posts about OCMD trending. Can't go wrong with those courses but I would substitute Bear Trap w/ Bayside.

    Does anyone know if the War Admiral course at Glen Riddle has gone public? It had been members only in the past.

    Public can play either of the two courses

    I'd recommend replacing Bear Trap with War Admiral and/or Man O'War. Bayside is a very good Nicklaus course, but as a pre-season tune up I would not necessarily recommend putting yourself through that level of difficulty.
