Reviving tradition: Ernie Styles’ Bavarian Hops Scramble returns on Aug. 25

(Aug. 11, 2023) The Ocean Pines Golf Club will once again play host to the Ernie Styles’ Bavarian Hops Scramble on Friday, Aug. 25 at 4 p.m.    

Originally conceived by the late Ernie Styles, the Bavarian Hops Scramble was designed as a fun, nine-hole experience where participants could engage in a friendly round of golf, accompanied by four refreshing hops beverages.   

Laughter, camaraderie, and enjoyment were at the forefront of this unique event, with participants raising their glasses to toast cherished memories and contribute to local causes. Notable beneficiaries have included the Worcester County Humane Society and Diakonia, and the event has raised more than $30,000 for local charities since its inception.   

This year, Patty Curtin and Don McMullen have taken over as event organizers.  

The 2023 Ernie Styles’ Bavarian Hops Scramble promises an array of exciting features:  
  • A nine-hole, two-person scramble, allowing participants to register as a team or as individuals.  
  • The opportunity to secure a “clear" low net on each hole, earning a skin and a share of the prize (pro shop credits).  
  • A spirited "closest-to-the-pin" competition on hole number seven, with the winner receiving the coveted “Hops Hat” for an entire year.  
  • A lively seventh tee box party designed for those not participating in the golf event.  
  • An inviting dinner is available at the Clubhouse Bar and Grille, extending camaraderie among Ocean Pines Golf friends.  

All proceeds are directed towards the worthy causes of Diakonia and the Worcester County Humane Society.  

Entry is $25 per person, and cart and greens fees are the responsibility of each participant. The registration deadline is Monday, Aug. 21.
