The much-anticipated renovation on the Tern Grille and men's and women's locker rooms began this week. Ocean Pines Public Works began demolition of the spaces with a target completion date of March 15, 2017.
As part of the renovation process, the Tern Grill will be expanded and updated and the locker rooms will receive upgrades.
Pictures from the initial demolition are included below.

Don Smith, who qualified for Ocean Pines Golf Club's $1 Million Shootout at Residents' Day on Oct. 23, took his shot on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 170 yards on the 18th hole.
Although Smith missed the hole, he enjoyed beautiful weather and some nice parting gifts including two rounds of golf, golf balls and an Ocean Pines shirt, hat and pint glass.
He also got to celebrate his attempt (or drown his sorrows) with a drink in The Tern Grille with PGA Director of Golf John Malinowski as well as his brother Evan (an Ocean Pines resident) and his wife, Annette. Smith and his wife are residents of Arnold, Maryland and also own a house in Ocean Pines.
The "ho, ho, ho" holiday spirit will return to Ocean Pines Golf Club with the 24th Annual Santa's Open golf tournament on Saturday, Dec. 3.
This event, which supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Eastern Shore, includes a fun day of golf, food, prizes and presents.
Registration begins at 9 am with a 10 am shotgun start. Reception and awards will follow play at 3 pm.
The cost is $75 per person if registration is received by Nov. 25 or $85 at the door. Each golfer is also asked to bring one unwrapped present for a boy or girl ages 7-17. The fee includes breakfast, cart, golf, contests, gift and post-tournament reception.
