Ocean Pines Golf Club to Host Taylor Bank / Ocean Pines Jr. Golf Scholarship Tournament
The Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council will host the Taylor Bank / Ocean Pines 34th Annual Jr. Golf Scholarship Tournament at Ocean Pines Golf Club on Wednesday, June 13 with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
This year’s event is being held in honor of long-time Ocean Pines Golf Club member Chuck Shelton, who passed away this spring. It benefits junior golf in the area by helping support junior golf clinics and an annual tournament for junior golfers. It also raises funds for scholarships that are presented to local high school seniors who have expressed an interest in golf.
The public entry fee is $80 per person, which includes greens fee, cart, team prizes, men’s and ladies’ closest-to-the-pin prizes, door prizes, continental breakfast, on-course refreshments and lunch at Taylor’s Neighborhood Restaurant following the tournament. The entry fee for Ocean Pines golf members with a cart package is $50 and $65 for members without a cart package.
Players may sign up individually or as a foursome. Individuals or incomplete teams will be paired.
Taylor Bank is the event’s title sponsor; the Optimists of Ocean City/ Berlin have also made a generous donation to this year’s tournament.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are available, including personal and business tee signs and tee sign packages. Sponsors are also being sought for long-drive and closest-to-the-pin holes.
The entry deadline is June 6. The fee may be dropped off at or mailed to the Golf Shop at Ocean Pines Golf Club at 100 Clubhouse Drive, Ocean Pines, MD, 21811. Checks should be made payable to “Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council.”
