For more than 20 years, Eagle’s Landing has been owned and operated by the Town of Ocean City. The variety of holes and tee options make this course perfect for all skill levels. The course has 12 Links style holes with mounding, native grass areas and bunkers. Six of the holes meander through the salt marshes of Sinepuxent Bay. Four sets of tees further help accommodate all skill levels, with tees ranging from 4,896 yards to 7,003 yards.

“We have always had the mission of providing a premium golf experience at an affordable price and a great value.  We want golfers to feel like they played a great golf course with the best conditions and great customer service that didn’t cost an arm and a leg,” said Robert Croll, head golf professional at Eagle’s Landing.

Gorgeous views of Assateague Island National Seashore enhance the picturesque landscape of the course. Eagle’s Landing was the first Audubon Sanctuary in the state, and golfers will see an abundance of wildlife in its natural surroundings throughout the course.

Golfers at Eagle’s Landing will find that the nine-minute intervals between tee times allow for a more relaxing pace without feeling crowded. Serving up to 200 golfers on a busy day, this favorite Ocean City course sees golfers of all kinds. In the spring and fall, “package golfers” come from all over to play during the ideal temperatures, especially on weekends. The summer season brings vacation golfers of all ages including children. Local golfers enjoy the course all year long, even in the colder months.

In addition to the pristine 18 holes, there is a short game practice area with a putting green and chipping green.  There are two PGA Professionals on staff and lessons are available for those who want to improve their swing. If you’re looking for some new gear or a souvenir, the fully stocked golf shop on site has the latest in apparel and golf accessories.

After working up an appetite on the fairway, the Caddy Shack Café is located in the clubhouse and offers breakfast and lunch. Early risers can enjoy breakfast sandwiches, bagels and coffee. For lunch, the café offers a good selection of choices including seasonal, house-made crab cakes and shrimp salad along with cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs and more.

Eagle’s Landing hosts 12 large charity golf outings each year as well as several smaller group events.  Here are some of the more popular outings at Eagle’s Landing.

Swing for Youth Golf Open: Each fall, this four-person Florida scramble format tournament benefits youth programs of Ocean City Recreation & Parks. The tournament also features a silent auction and participation fee includes greens fees and cart, two mulligans per person, a putting contest and raffle tickets. Participation is limited and this event sells out every year, so plan ahead for 2014.

Turkey Trot Open: Typically held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this tournament is a great way to ring in the holidays and get in some competitive golf before the winter weather arrives. The entry fee for the four-player scramble includes greens fee, cart, prizes and a turkey dinner after the tournament.

Super Bowl Scramble: The world of football and golf collide with this uniquely scored four-player scramble. Each team consists of a Coach, Quarterback, Running Back and Wide Receiver.  Teams score points based on football type scoring. The day starts with a breakfast tailgate party, players enjoy a halftime lunch and finish up with prizes at the end of the day.

St. Patrick’s Scramble: The luck of the Irish may shine on some who play in this four-person scramble tournament. Each team plays six holes from each Gold, White and Blue Tees. Teams choose the holes they play from each of the tees. If a player’s ball lands on a clover, the team is truly lucky because their ball will be deemed holed! Lunch featuring Irish-American fare is served after the tournament.
