A stunning seaside golfing paradise is what the Eagle’s Landing Golf Club is all about. The golf resort is perfectly nestled in the area’s vast lands where the sky, land, and water blends well with Eagle’s Landing unique design. Aside from the challenging layout, guests are also provided with the serene vista of Sinepuxent Bay as well as the unspoiled splendor of the Assateague Island National Seashore. That is why it has been dubbed as one of Maryland’s most scenic golf vacation destination.
In 1996, Eagle’s Landing Golf Club was rated as the 45th among the “75 Most Affordable Public Courses in America” by Golf Digest. This 18-hole par-72 layout is a combination of the marshland and links-style design that offers the array of configurations around the salt marshes and ponds as well as variations in hole lengths. To add up to challenge, marshes and upland meadows offer the rich visual texture that will serve as an additional hazard. The 7,003-yard layout also features the rye and bent grass greens and fairways.
The golf course provides golfers a fair start with straight-forward holes weaving back and forth in the layout’s uplands. A large waste bunker separates hole #4 and #5. At the 6th, playing from the tips would lead to a challenging left curve around the pond all the way to the pond side green. On holes #7 to #10, the area is often termed as the transition zone where the holes are enclosed by oaks and pines meandering around the tidal marshes closer to the bay. The 7th hole in particular offers the par-5, 90-degree dogleg that presents two forced carries over the tidal marshes. And all the way to the 18th hole is all about the fine test of golfing skills even to the skilled golfers.
