River Marsh Golf Club

Maryland's leading Eastern Shore golf course has two finishing holes that are destined to be some of the region's most talked about. The 17th is a par 3 that stretches 200 yards from the tips. Awaiting the bold player is a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large putting surface guarded by three artfully crafted bunkers. The green is backdropped by majestic trees and a stunning vista of the broad Choptank River that flows into the Chesapeake Bay.

All club rentals must be paid for by the individual and Max Marshall, at the Hyatt, can be contacted directly. Golfers are welcome to bring their own golf shoes or sneakers.

Sago Spa

Sago Spa, situated on the Chesapeake Bay, is in a scenic location where the Atlantic Ocean meets the fresh waters of its surrounding rivers. The rise and flow of the tides have long impacted the livelihood of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and Sago has managed to capture the bounty of this great land and deliver life, vitality and nourishment to all spa guests.

Sporting Clays

Our sporting clay’s event is perfect for beginners and experienced attendees alike! Event includes:

Winery Tour and Tasting

The Layton family has had a hand in Dorchester County agriculture since 1948. The next generation in this family of farmers brought the idea of Layton’s Chance Winery and Vineyard to fruition in 2007 as an effort to diversify their grain farming operation. By taking a leap of faith and a “chance” they planted grapes suited for the climate of the Eastern Shore and anxiously awaited to see if their hard work would ever bear fruit, and bear it did. In 2010, the family opened the winery that would come to be known as "Layton’s Chance."

Kayak Tour

Your tour takes place in Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and public waterways along the Little Blackwater River. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy this place nestled on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to view waterfowl making their way south on the North Atlantic Migratory Flyway. The Little Blackwater River hosts an array of waterfowl, animal and plant life, including exquisite scenery while paddling on the river with your local guides who will escort you though the marshes, searching for bald eagles, osprey, turtles and river otters, plus much more! You will paddle by eagles’ and ospreys’ nests to try to catch a peak at their little ones up close (in season)! This paddle will be a scenic and relaxing adventure you won’t forget as you journey through what journalists have called the “Everglades of Maryland!” There’s no experience necessary. Each group receives a paddle lesson by a certified guide; just enjoy your two-hour paddle as we provide all necessary equipment and bottled water.
