For the first time ever, Ocean Pines Golf Club has added two sets of “family” tees, which offer a shorter playing alternative for juniors and those just learning to play the sport.
According to PGA Director of Golf John Malinowski, regular tees can present too much of a challenge for developing players. “You wouldn’t, for example, put a little kid in the batter’s box against a major league pitcher. The reduced yardage of the family tees makes our championship course accessible to and fun for players of all abilities,” he said.
The new tees, identified with orange and green golf ball tee markers, range in distance from 65 yards to 250 yards per hole for the shorter set and 85 yards to 300 yards for the slightly longer set.

Ocean Pines Golf Club announced today the introduction of polo golf, slated to begin in 2018. This new program is designed to take advantage of the course's ample green space and will appeal to equestrians and golfers alike.
Polo golf, which combines the traditional team sport played on horseback and elements of golf, is relatively new to the United States; it has been popular for years in the United Kingdom. Rather than walking or using a cart, foursomes ride individually on horseback and attempt to hit and putt the golf ball into the hole.
