Ocean City Golf Club (Newport Bay course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1959

Ocean City Golf Club is home to two 18-hole golf courses, the generally higher-rated Newport Bay course, and the older Seaside course.

The Newport Bay (formerly Bayside) course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
