Nassawango Country Club in Snow Hill is the last in our series of golf courses in the area of Ocean City that are available for visitors to the shore to play. While Snow Hill is not a chip and a putt from Ocean City, it is not an excessively long drive, either. You can probably get there in an easy 45 minutes from downtown Ocean City.
Nassawango opened in 1970. It was designed by Russell Roberts and located along the scenic Pocomoke River in Snow Hill. This mature course winds through pine and cypress forests and along a 3-acre lake. You get to hit over rolling terrain for a maximum distance of 6,634 yards from the blue tees and 6,344 from the whites with an unconventional 35-37--72 par card.
The women have a tee marking of 5,750 yards with a 35-38--73 par to shoot at.
There is a fleet of 65 electric riding carts, a putting green and pro shop with a helpful staff. Also on the grounds are tennis courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a clubhouse and restaurant. Memberships for residents and non-residents are available.
You can get to Nassawango by driving west on Routes 90 or 50 to Route 113. Head south from Berlin to Route 394 in Snow Hill. Turn right at the light in Snow Hill at Route 12 and then left on Nassawango Road at the blinking light. The club is at 3940 Nassawango Road, and you can call (410) 632-3114 for tee times and more information.
