Way to many sandy greens and bare spots for resort course. Why would you aerate greens just before a 3 day weekend? Why do you allow 3 of 4 golfers to walk on a Saturday morning. I am not happy to say we waited on every shot on every hole. The rangers was there in name only.

Though I am a member of another nearby course I enjoy playijng this Gary Player course from time to time. It is generally in good condition and while not overwhelmingly difficult it has some interesting holes..

Played golf there on a trip. Took an hour for food to come out, bartender overwhelmed and had an attitude just to ask what was holding up food. Golf was fair but not going there anymore. Far better places then this track

What an awful golf course. Does Gary Player even know his name is attached to this place? I've played about 10 courses in the Ocean City/Delaware area and this is the worst one. And then at a rate of $124 it's a complete ripoff.
We asked about the driving range and were told go on over, there are free balls to hit....yep, there were about 15 balls to share between the 3 of us!
On the course, there is no hole by hole map on the scorecard; no hole maps at each tee box, and no GPS. So you are on your own to guess where each hole plays. Most of the fairways have no 'first cut' and most of the greens don't either.
This place is about on par with the $25 muni course down the street.
Oh yeah...a hot dog is $5.50 and a tuna sandwich is $10. The beer cart came around once in 18 holes.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.
YOU WILL BE SORRY.

Course was in terrible condition. Greens aerated (no prior notice); fairways were all beaten up and disgraceful. Bunkers full of mud and waterlogged. Pace of play glacial. $80? $8 might have been a better deal! Sent a communication complaint to the course..no reply.

The River Run Golf Club & Community is a beautiful piece of property only 20 minutes from Ocean City, MD. Take 90 or 50 to 589 North and go to Beauchamp Road (traffic light) and make a right and it's just down the road a ways on the left. Eighteen holes of Gary Player designed golf with 5 tees on each hole: Black; Blue; Gold; White and Lady's Red. It's a challenging course, but not so hard as to be discouraging to the average golfer! It's a beautiful setting, right on the bay. Home sites are available and the property also has a restaurant in the clubhouse, a swim club and a marina. I almost forgot, you can get there by boat if you wish!

I play golf there and my wife and I even eat breakfast there when all the Ocean City places for breakfast have long lines. The facilities are lovely and clean, the golf course is very well maintained, and the staff is as nice as can be...not one of your snooty country clubs. Golfing is open to the public with reservations. I make mine through OCGolfing at 866-ocgolfing or http://www.ocgolfing.com (whose staff is also extremely nice). Rest rooms and refreshments (including a roving cart) are available throughout the golf course.

The River Run Golf Club is just a really nice golfing experience only a few minutes from Ocean City. You'll like it.

Course was in terrible condition
At least 6 fairways were in total state of repair
Lucky to find grass on many of them.
How they charge $80 for a round of golf is a mystery and a robbery.
It’s a Gary Player designed course, but I’m sure Gary would have a heart attack and take his name off it immediately, if he played it now.

This was our first visit to River Run. The course was great! Great conditions and lay out. The pro shop and course staff was great. Guys at the pro shop/marshals were super friendly. Devon and Larry were great and very helpful. Krystle the cart girl was as sweet as can be and all of the course taking good care of us. Inside at the restaurant was a different story, the staff was horrible and not very personal. The girls seems flustered easily and messed up on our drink orders and dinner. They seemed annoyed that we were even there, if you don't like your job it's time to get a new one. Don't expect to make any money when you seem annoyed that someone actually comes in for food and drinks. Other that our experience at the restaurant, we would say River Run is great place to go! We will defiantly come back!

Just came back from our fall Ocean City, MD golf trip. This time we played three of the "Freeman" courses on a package deal. The middle one was River Run in Berlin. Parking lot layout was a little unusual, with the main entrance area devoted to residential real estate sales, but the pro shop and club headquarters is just another iron shot down the road, maybe 150 feet. Check in was quick, easy and professional. There is a small bar and restaurant to the left of the pro-shop. We arrived a little early, and they were quite accommodating in moving up our time. Staff was friendly. Service was excellent. The course itself has some interesting holes and features. Some nice scenery enhanced the day. Greens were well kept, but I had difficulty with the reads. Fairways are relatively narrow, and require well placed shots. Ocean City had just had a lot of rain, and some wind in the week before our arrival. Drainage and muddy conditions were a problem. Also, lots of leaves and rough made in hard to find your ball if even a bit off fairway. Pace of play became an issue because of lost balls. Also, paths were not marked off clearly. We lost our direction once, as did the other cart with us.The previous day we had played a different course which had an excellent drainage system. the difference was very obvious even though it was a day later and had another day to dry out. I would suggest that you check the weather, and if you are not committed to a previous course, this would be a good course to play if it had ample time to dry out. Try to price it competitively. If you get the course in the right conditions, I think you would be satisfied overall, for the right price.

Played this course for the 1st time on 11/10/12. Very pleased with the shape of the course. Good layout and the greens were rolling very smooth. I will be coming back again. The course does lack signs at tees that show the hole layout but you pretty much get what you see. There are markers on lay-up holes that tell you the distance to the marshes.
