6/18/2010An Ocean City research trip took me to Glen Riddle’s Man O War track that I’ve enjoyed many times prior. As in the norm, my opinion of this course is that it is a superb course and I really enjoy playing it! I got off to a pretty good start on this beautiful, albeit hot, day with 2 birds on the 1st 6 holes but some near misses on putts that could have been made and a few errant shots cost me a really nice round. A couple of nice par 5’s on the back will challenge you with the 1st one being a 3 shot hole with a split fairway. Lefty’s tip: Hit to the left fairway on your 2nd shot for the best approach. The second par 5 may offer you a risk/reward-go-for-it over the marsh decision if you hit a big drive. Lefty’s tip #2: Lay up unless you are within a deuce. The remainder of the back nine is very “playable” and offers some good chances for birdies. I always seem to score pretty well here even when I do leave several shots on the course as I did today. I’ve said it before and will say it again, when in OC, you should definitely give this Man O War a call! Lefty
6/15/2007For the second stop on the Ocean City Research Trip ’07, we paid a visit to Glen Riddle’s Man O War track that I’ve enjoyed a few times prior. I gotta tell you this is a peach of a course and I could play it again and again! As I believe is the norm for this course, conditions were superb with closely cropped fairways and beautiful greens. The rough is rough enough but in most places will allow you to find and hit your errant shot. (Trust me; I was there a few times!) I also would call this a “players course” as most of the time if you miss a green, you can still save par fairly easily (if you have any kind of short game) as the areas around the green allow you to “Texas Wedge” it if you choose. A couple of holes that I recall, #13 which is a scenic over-the-water 170+ yard par 3. Our group thought we did fairly well with a birdie and couple of pars but while hitting our tee shots on the long Par 5 14th, a big yell gave us a clue that one of the guys in our group had just Aced it…a cell call a few minutes later confirmed that fact! On the front nine, numbers 8 and 9, you’ll notice the old horse training track – which is now a hard sand hazard that you can certainly play out of – as well as an old starting gate for the thoroughbreds. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Glen Riddle is a “must play” Ocean City Course. We liked it so much that we played 36 on this day and both the short tees and regular ones gave us enough challenges! When in OC, you should definitely give this track a call! Lefty
8/21/2006Man O War at Glenriddle is another great course in Ocean City! I could stop there and just leave it at that but it wouldn’t be fair to you, the Waggle junkies who crave this information, OR to the course, which would be simply labeled as, “just another great course as rated by Lefty”. Last time I played this track I was under the weather but not today. I absolutely loved this track! It was fun, challenging, scenic, and in immaculate shape! What else is there to a golf course other than shooting lights out? Well 4 out of 5 ain’t bad but what a superb track. As mentioned in prior reviews and by the name, this golf course is themed after the legendary horse Man O War. In fact, the designer was creative enough to use the original historic race track (that I assume used to exist on this property) as a cross hazard for 3 of the holes on the course. There are also double fairways, pot bunkers and large greens to catch your fancy. These large greens were in superb shape and rolled excellent. You need a good putting touch but can stop downhill putts relatively close to the hole. Oh heck, why not just go ahead and make it! A couple of the par 5’s are reachable in 2 and the majority of par 3’s are challenging and will make you hit a good iron to be on the green. I particularly liked the fact that you could miss some shots and still be able to recover and make a par (or better). There was no information on the slope or course rating yet but I would expect the slope to be in the 120’s as I rate it as a fairly forgiving course. This course is new but, trust me, it will not be new for long as it will get a lot of play. It’s just too nice to pass up. The price of admission is about normal for OC tracks, so definitely give this one a look. Tell’em Lefty from sent you! Make sure to get some after round dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak house too! What a nice facility! Lefty
6/17/2006The second stop on the Ocean City Golf Excursion took us to the brand new Man O War track just outside of Ocean City in nearby Berlin MD. I had heard a lot about this track and looked forward to playing it. Unfortunately for me, the activities from the night before took most of my competitive edge and I only recovered by the back nine to realize what a great track this really is. In case you haven’t figured it out from the name, the course is themed after horse racing and while playing you’ll see old starting gates, horse plows and other memorabilia to put you in the stables! The course itself is a real challenge with many mounds and undulations throughout. The greens although new, held shots pretty well and putted true. The course is also very scenic and you will enjoy seeing great views on the course as each hole has its own picturesque setting. I recovered (somewhat) on the back nine to shoot a respectable score considering the conditions (of me, not the course) and would recommend Glen Riddle to anyone going to OC as a “must play” track, in fact I’d say it’s as good as the best course OC has to offer. Treat yourself to some Ruth Chris steakhouse food after the round to really make it a day to remember….hmmm, I wonder why those steaks taste so good and there are no more horses running around the golf course? Enjoy! Lefty
