As a Lighthouse Lakes resident you have several high end golf courses at your disposal just minutes away from your home. It is important to us that you enjoy your residency here so as a courtesy we have compiled a list of our favorites to help you decide which ones are best suited for your golfing style! Or if you are super ambitious try them all!
The closest course is Bayside Resort Golf Club which is also conveniently located in Selbyville, Delaware only 3.3 miles down the road. This course is said to offer an unforgettable experience with their dramatic views and strategic design. It features signature holes along the Assawoman Bay coastline and winds through a magnificent pine forest. Meaning that some holes are richly tree-lined, others maneuver through marshland, and still others vaunt wide-open fairways. For more information on the golf packages that they offer visit golfbayside.com/golf-packages.html.
The second closest at 9.3 miles away is Bear Trap Dunes located in Ocean View, Delaware. On this natural golf course, winding bent-grass fairways are lined with native wetland grasses that meander into magnificent sand dunes. With well-groomed oversized greens and four skillfully placed sets of tees, these dunes attract golfers of every skill level. To check out this 27-hole strategic masterpiece, visit beartrapdunes.com/course-layout.html.
Links at Lighthouse Sound is another great course to try. It is located 9.7 miles from our property on St. Martins Neck Road in Bishopville. Their goal from the beginning was to create a golf course that allowed Mother Nature to show off her beauty, and they have done just that. The advantage to their approach is that the course now provides great variety in terms of visual excitement and strategy for its players. They do so with ten holes that border the pristine marshlands found within the 1,000 acre site while others are framed with mature hardwoods. Together, this collection of holes will provide you with a challenging and memorable golf experience. For information on tee times, go to onetee.com/course/liso.
Moving a bit further into Delaware, you can find Cripple Creek Golf and Country Club just 12.6 miles from your home, located in Dagsboro, Delaware. This course measures less than 6,700 yards Par 72 from its back tees which creates quite a unique test of golf. They offer a practice facility and welcoming staff which will always be available upon request to assist with club fittings, equipment purchases, and golf instruction. These greens are true and there are no “tricked up” holes or blind shots. Cripple Creek also hosts an 18-hole ladies day for women every Wednesday morning.

Or check out Ocean Resorts Golf Club located 13.4 miles out in Berlin, Maryland. This course is owned by Wor-Wic Community College and was built for players of all ages and abilities with yardages from 4,800 yards to a formidable 6,500 yards. In addition to resort play, limited annual memberships are available. However, reservations are recommended from April 1st through October 31st. For tee times, memberships, and layout go online to oceanresortsgolfclub.com or call 410-641-5643 ext. 3.
The River Run Golf Club is also set in Berlin approximately 14.3 miles away from Lighthouse Lakes. This club offers a world class Gary Player designed golf course that received a four star rating in Golf Digest. The course is fair for the beginner, but is certainly no walk in the park for the scratch player. It is a “tale of two nines” with its open front nine and tighter back nine that winds through the timber. There are just a few lakes to avoid and some marshy areas but that is common when you are only seven miles from the ocean. Book your tee time online at riverrungolf.com or call 410-641-7200.
Last but never least is Ocean Pines Golf Club located in Ocean Pines Maryland 14.8 miles from our property. This is the only Robert Trent Jones Championship Course on the Eastern Shore. They are open to the public and have great membership options available. Their facility features an expansive clubhouse with dining, full-service Gold Shop, locker room facilities, sheltered driving area, practice chipping and pitching green, two practice putting greens , two practice sand bunkers, and a modern learning center. Other services available include clinics, private lessons, club repair, club cleaning, and bag storage. Not to mention, summer golf rates are at an all-time low right now starting at just $30. So call 410-641-6057 for tee times!
As mentioned previously these are just a few of the wonderful courses that Delmarva has to offer you surrounding Lighthouse Lakes. In the near future, Bunting Construction will be adding a chipping/putting green to our already expansive property so that you have the benefit of practicing your short game just steps away from home!
