Eagle's Landing Named #1 Golf Course in Maryland on Golfer's Choice List
By Brian Weis
Ocean City, Md., may be known for its iconic boardwalk and 10 miles of beautiful beach, attracting visitors year-round for a seaside vacation. Though in the golf community, Ocean City is known as the home to several of the finest golf options in the Mid-Atlantic. One such course, Eagle's Landing, has just been ranked as the top golf course in Maryland in the 2021 Golfer's Choice list. Generated by GolfPass.com, the list is a compilation of customer reviews in the following categories; conditions, value, layout, friendliness, pace of play and amenities. The course previously reached #1 in 2016 and spent the last two years in the top three for Maryland.
"We are thrilled to be ranked #1 on the Golfer's Choice list, and the greatest thing about this ranking is that it comes from our customers," said Bob Croll, head golf professional at Eagle's Landing Golf Course. "Eagle's Landing is truly a crown jewel of Ocean City that showcases the beauty of the Eastern Shore environment, offers a challenging championship course, and provides great customer service."
Designed by renowned golf course architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan, Eagle's Landing was recognized for its lush greens, an abundance of wildlife, and spectacular views of the Sinepuxent Bay and Assateague Island National Seashore. The 18-hole championship golf course features a variety of water holes, large white-sand bunkers, elevated tees, rolling fairways and contoured greens. Eagle's Landing is committed to protecting and preserving its natural resources and habitat, and is the first golf course in Maryland to be fully certified as an Audubon Sanctuary.
Eagle's Landing offers GPS-equipped golf carts, a full-service cafe, a well-stocked clubhouse, and a local rewards program for year-round residents of the Ocean City area. The program offers discounted green fees and rewards for free golf. Walking is also permitted at any time.
