Never mistake shortness for shortage. Length, or the lack of it, does not fully define the excellence of a golf course. Sure, it does say something, but it does not bear everything. Nutter’s Crossing Golf Club, for example, is not necessarily long at just more than 6,100 yards, par 70. But golfers will attest that this golf vacation destination is not running short on fun, excitement, or the elements that make for a great and challenging day on the greens.
This golf course in Salisbury, MD is located 50 miles off of Ocean City. And Ocean City area being itself, water is an indispensable part of golf course layouts. Thus, what Nutter’s Crossing Golf Club lacks in length, it makes up for in water hazards. There are 8 water hazards here that play mostly on more than 12 of the 18 holes, especially playing from the longest tees. To compliment this feature, the design group behind this layout added at least 50 bunkers of various shapes and sizes. For a small course, it surely is packed. That says a lot about what to expect about golf trips here: packed.
To top it off, the Nutter’s Crossing Golf Club has impeccably maintained bermuda grass greens and lush, rolling fairways. And there’s no shortage on off-greens amenities too – it begins with a beautiful colonial brick clubhouse to delight players, post game. With a course that’s as interesting as it sounds, any golfer would go on a golf vacation here even on a short notice. And they won’t go home shortchanged. In short, it’s fun and worth the trip.
