Pines Officials Highlight Teamwork During Golf Clubhouse Grand Opening

FrankBrown JohnDaily GrandOpening(June 17, 2020) “Teamwork” was the word of the day, as Ocean Pines officials held a grand opening ceremony for the new Golf Clubhouse on Wednesday morning. 

The Ocean Pines Board approved the project in April 2019 at a guaranteed maximum cost of $1.6 million.

Salisbury architectural firm Davis, Bowen and Friedel, Inc. developed plans for the roughly 7,200 single-story building, which includes a large meeting room and space for a new restaurant, along with an outdoor deck, pro shop and club-fitting area.

Absolute Demolition of Ocean City took down the former two-story clubhouse last May, and the Whayland Company, based in Laurel, Delaware, began construction in October.

The project officially wrapped last month, at a final cost of about $1.49 million, General Manager John Viola reported during a recent Board meeting.

OP Golf Members' Council Announces Annual Scholarships

 (May 28, 2020) The Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council recently awarded five scholarships totaling $6,000 to local high school seniors.
 
The scholarship committee of the Golf Members’ Council each year honors students who have exhibited an interest in the game of golf, and who demonstrated exemplary academic and extracurricular records.

Bob Long, scholarship committee chairman, said awards are given on behalf of Ocean Pines Golf Club members, who support the fund throughout the year.
 
“While the committee and the membership is saddened not to have the opportunity to present these scholarships in person this spring, it is hoped they will have the chance to meet these young people on the golf course in the not too distant future,” Long said.

Ocean Pines Golf Club Reopens for Business Following COVID Closure

OPGolfFoursome 2020(May 11, 2020) The Ocean Pines Golf Club welcomed back its first customers of the season on Saturday after Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan broadened the list of outdoor activities allowed under the state's stay-at-home order.
 
Although construction on the new golf clubhouse and grounds maintenance continued during the closure, golfers had not been allowed to play since the order took effect on March 23.
 
"The governor's announcement meant we had to hustle to get the course ready for play, but after a couple of days of hard work we were able to meet the restrictions placed on golf courses and were happy to be open again," Ocean Pines PGA General Manager of Golf John Malinowski said.
 
Some of those restrictions include limiting golfers who don't reside in the same household to one person per cart, prepayment over the phone of greens and cart fees, and regular sanitization of carts and on-course restrooms.
 
Despite having to adapt to a new set of procedures, golfers were excited to be able to play the Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed course again.
 
Ocean Pines Golf member Don McMullen, who played in Saturday's first foursome with fellow members Paul Kelly and Frank Ruggiere, as well as with Frank's son Steven Ruggiere, said the experience of returning to his home course with the new safety measures in place was "comforting."
