It’s hard to say if we will get anymore sunny, 70 degree days this “fall,” but if we do, embrace Mother Nature’s gift by enjoying an afternoon on one of the numerous world-class golf courses in the Ocean City area. If you’re looking to hit some greens before the end of the season, why not tee off at the place Golf Digest has called one of the “best places to play with a 3-star rating”- Deer Run Golf Club?
Deer Run was built in 1998 ad has been entertaining golfers with challenging play and scenic beauty ever since. It is a Par 70, 18 hole professional course, designed by the “Whole in One Design” company, nestled in the woods of Berlin just off of Route 50. Deer Run is perhaps the best value in Ocean City golf, especially if you catch a ‘Hot Deal’ on GolfNow.com or a coupon from our golf page.
Deer Run features all the elements that make Eastern Shore golf unique, including meandering creeks, gorgeous tree lines, small rolling hills, and lots of open landscape. Strategically placed sand traps and water hazards complete the course for a well-rounded golf experience with a little bit of everything.
Four par 5’s well over 500 yards, several long par 4’s, and 6 par 3’s, ranging up to 205 yards, present a true test of golf. Each hole offers 5 tee locations to challenge golfers of any skill level, including the monstrous blue tees, which play over 6100 yards. Fast greens with treacherous breaks along with holes such as the daunting #9 par 5 and the infamous #16 island par 3 are great equalizers that test the skills and mettle golfers, regardless of their handicap.
The course is spectacularly maintained with greens that are in immaculate shape, even in November, and fairways made up of vibrant grass that is perfectly manicured. If you’re looking to hone your skills prior to teeing off, Deer Run boasts a unique driving range, chipping area, practice par 3, and large putting area, as well as a renowned golf academy offering camps and lessons. Meg’s Deli and a well-equipped Pro Shop give golfers the chance to fuel up their bodies and gear up their bags for their round.

Deer Run Golf Club offers a truly all-encompassing Eastern Shore golf experience at a great value. Don’t miss your chance to tee up an amazing day before Old Man Winter rears his ugly head.
