Best Golf Courses Near Berlin, MD
Berlin, Maryland along with its neighbor Ocean City make up “the Myrtle Beach of the Mid-Atlantic” for golf lovers. With gorgeous beaches stretching along the Maryland and Delaware coastlines and numerous outstanding courses, many golfers who might otherwise have headed to Myrtle Beach opt for the more centrally located golf mecca of Berlin and Ocean City. Among the most popular and esteemed courses are the tree-lined and marsh-bound War Admiral and the links-style Man O’ War, both of which are at Glen Riddle Golf Club; Rum Pointe Golf Course, a links-style Pete and P.B. Dye collaboration where Assawoman National Seashore is in view on 17 holes; The Links at Lighthouse Sound, an Arthur Hills creation that in 2020 earned the #1 top course rating in Maryland from Golf Advisor in no small part due to its glorious stretches along Assawoman Bay and the St. Martin’s River; and the Jack Nicklaus Signature design at Bayside Resort Golf Course, which features holes routed amidst wetlands and stunning views of Assawoman Bay. Berlin is a very small town with a revitalized, historic and quaint downtown that offers an array of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs. You’ll also find one of Maryland’s favorite ice cream parlors here—Island Creamery. Ocean Downs Casino features casino gambling and harness racing. While Berlin itself is located inland, Ocean City’s beaches, boardwalk, and nightlife are just 10 miles away.
