Went here for a golf outing when we were attending a wedding in Cambridge. The course was in terrible shape. Driving range might be large enough for 4 people.....maybe. The fairways and greens were not well kept. The greens had dead spots that covered almost 50% of the green. I have never been able to lose a ball in the fairway so easy. The tee boxes appeared to have not been cut in at least a week or two. Same guy that was checking us out was cutting the grass and moving the carts. Not worth $45. Go play the Hyatt course for $100.

Sunday brunch? we arrived about 1:00. There was one other party(2) in the dining room. The servers and manager were friendly. This buffet is $30/person and there were 3 of us. All of the food was cold. We had to ask the manager for more water. They put out 8-10 shrimp and oysters and that was all. The view of the Choptank is very nice but we won't go back again.

Having played Augusta National 8 times, the Olympic Club in SF more than 100X, Cypress Point, Kiawah (all courses), and Muirfield in Scotland may speak to the merits of Choptank River Golf Club. It is a hidden treasure.
There are hidden gems all over the USA. In my opinion a Hidden Gem has to be challenging. Choptank has small greens. Some of the fairways are generous and others are tight. If you play Choptank from the Blue Tees and your Handicap is 5+, you will be humbled. Doglegs are Left and Right.
The personality of the course is not Driver, wedge, and 2 putt. It is more complex.
Try this if you believe yourself to be better than 85% of those who play golf. Show up with a sleeve of golf balls (3). If you are as good as you think, making it to thru 9 will be no problem. No mulligans. Play the ball down (no rolling it) and Choptank will flat out humble you.
As for some of the low ratings, I would bet a Dollar to win a Dime the negative reviewers left this fine golf course without their balls. If you want all you can handle, strap this Little Gem on and try to go low.
