Best Golf Courses Near Salisbury, MD
Salisbury, which dubs itself “Maryland’s coastal college town” because of Salisbury University, is the largest city on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Though Salisbury is located inland on flat ground, Nutters Crossing Golf Course, a layout with an open front line and a wooded back nine, spreads out on gentle hills with elevated greens. The tree-lined layout at the 1927-vintage Green Hill Country Club, while very flat, does have a hill as well as a couple of holes along the Wicomico River. Great Hope Golf Course in Westover, a wide open, challenging layout with several forced carries, extends on a flat old strawberry farm with just one house around it. Great Hope often appears on lists of Maryland’s top courses. Nearby Seaford, Delaware is home to Hooper’s Landing Golf Course, where alternately tight and wide open fairways lead to small, devilishly bunkered greens. In Millsboro, Delaware, the Arthur Hills-designed Plantation Lakes Golf & Country Club, a layout laden with water hazards and large bunkers and known for its excellent greens, regularly comes in as Delaware’s #3 public course. Salisbury is also no more than 30 miles from the golf courses and beaches of Ocean City. In Salisbury itself, top attractions include the Warm Museum of Waterfowl Art, the superb Salisbury Zoo, and the Delmarva Shorebird minor league baseball games. Salisbury is also one place on the Eastern Shore where shoppers can find major stores along with unique shops.
