With a slope of 126 from the blues (6041 yards) this was one tough cookie for us to master. The greens ran close to 12 on the stimp meter and gave me a terrible headache on the front nine.
On some holes, the wind proved to be a challenging foe by knocking down substantial drives while at other times the extra distance felt like an adrenalin rush.
The Links at Lighthouse Sound starts out simple with a short par 4 that's under 300 yards from two of the four decks. Cross a road and then you'll be following a shoreline for the next six holes. Hole #2 and #3 share a large green. You'll end up back at the hateful 7th hole, a long par 5, that when the wind is in your face you'll be happy with a boogie (I know I was).
After another short par 4, #8, you'll drive across America's longest cart bridge with a length of 1500 feet. It's quite a monster.
The next eight holes are played in a very secluded area surrounded by marsh and trees. This was one of the most pleasant experiences golfing as we were the first pairing in the morning so we had the entire course to ourselves.
Hole #17 and #18 were once again, along the coast with water to our left.
The finishing hole, a par 5 at 470 yards saw me only needing a pitching wedge into the green after a strong wind assisted drive.
After the round we stopped in at the clubhouse and enjoyed a meal. My salmon sandwich features a large slab of freshly cooked meat done to perfection.
The Links at Lighthouse Sound is a must stop for a golfer in the Ocean City, Maryland area. It was a joy to play from start to finish.
