I've played a number of golf courses in the Ocean City area and all have been quality courses without being overpriced. Eagle's Landing is no exception. In fact, Eagle's Landing is a municipal golf course that doesn't fit the mold of many other municipal golf courses. Before playing I visited the Eagle's Landing website and took a look at the course rates. Because the course was priced lower than others in the area I thought the course must be inferior. I was wrong. I found the greens to be the best all the course I played during the week. They were quite large with some contour but nothing terribly difficult to read or having extreme slope.
Looking at the Yardage Card the course appears to have an abundance of holes with water. Much of the water is actually marsh and doesn't show as a distinct area where your ball will go "splosh". However, there are many areas where your score can go afoul so take a look at the hole layout before teeing off. Eagle's Landing has the distinction of being the first certified audobon cooperative sanctuary in Maryland so entering most areas to hunt for a stray ball is forbidden.
Typically I like to play a round of close to 6,000 yards. Setting my eyes on the scorecard I was torn between 5,700 yards (white) and 6,300 yards (gold). I choose the white tees but would have liked to have seen a blended set of tee blocks in the range I like to play.
Playing from the white tees there was a number of tempting short par 4s that I could almost reach from the tee but often there was some form of hazard that made it impossible (or very risky) for me to attempt the glory shot. I did have an eagle putt on the 471 yard par 5 11th hole but didn't pick the right line. I though I was going to have another eagle attempt on the par 5 13th but ended up greenside in one of the nastiest pot bunker I've ever been in. It took me 3 to get out despite hitting all 3 shots to my liking. Close in two, down in eight. Ouch!
The first five holes at Eagle's Landing are very tame and should allow you to loosen up and get you into a nice pace of play. After that, the fun starts. The par 4 6th is a dogleg left around a large pond. An aggressive tee shot can shave a number of yards off your approach.
Hole #7 is a par 5 which almost appears to the naked eye that a long tee shot can hit the green. The hole plays a lot longer than it looks.
The clubhouse offers a number of daily specials and I can vouch that the food is good. I'm a sucker for a good shrimp salad.
The proshop is adequately equipped and staff are most pleasant and helpful.
Eagle's Landing is a must play if you're in the Ocean City area.
