Pines Officials Break Ground on New Clubhouse

Ocean Pines Board members, General Manager John Viola, local builders Marvin Steen and Frank Brown, representatives from the Whayland Company and Davis, Bowen and Friedel, Inc., and members of the golf community on Tuesday, Oct. 1 took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Ocean Pines Golf clubhouse.

Association President Doug Parks spoke first and thanked the several dozen people who attended the ceremony.

“This is a very exciting time,” he said. “I wanted to publicly recognize some of the people that have been instrumental in what’s going on … Steve Tuttle has been the Board representative on this project, and he’s done a yeoman’s work in keeping everything up to date [and] keeping the Board up to date.

“I’d also like to thank everybody else that’s been involved,” Parks continued, recognizing both “the former Board members who supported this and the current Board members who continue to support this, so we can make sure this project is delivered on time, so we can start enjoying a wonderful new facility here at the Golf course.”

Golf Members' Council Raises Record Amount for Local Students

The Ocean Pines-Taylor Bank Golf Scramble, held in July at the Ocean Pines Golf Club, raised more than $11,000 for local scholarships.
 
Organizers from the Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council, which hosts the event, said the tournament was so successful that the official tally is still ongoing.
 
“The bottom line is that our efforts raised over $11,100 and we are still counting,” Council Scholarship Chairman Bob Long said. “In June, we awarded $7,000 in scholarships to six local students; most of this was money that was raised in 2018. The $11,100 plus from this year’s scramble will mean we can provide significantly more money at graduation time in 2020.”

Bavarian Hops Scramble Raises Thousands for Local Charities

The Ocean Pines Golf Members Council raised money for Diakonia and the Worcester County Humane Society during the 14th annual Bavarian Hops Scramble, held last Friday at the Ocean Pines Golf Club.
 
After tournament founder Ernie Stiles passed away last year, organizers decided the event would continue in his honor.
 
“Ernie’s idea was simply to go out for nine holes, have some good fun, and support some good causes,” Golf Council member Bob Long said. “This year the event began with a toast, as each participant raised a glass to the sky and said ‘Nostrovia!’ (to your health) in honor of Ernie and the others who have passed and who enjoyed playing in previous scrambles.”

Plans Released for New Ocean Pines Golf Clubhouse

Floor plans, roof plans and building elevations for the new Ocean Pines Golf Clubhouse were delivered this week by Salisbury architectural firm Davis, Bowen and Friedel, Inc.
 
Plans for the roughly 7,200 single-story building include a large meeting room and space for the Tern’s Grille restaurant, along with an outdoor deck, pro shop and club-fitting area. Construction on the new building is scheduled to start later this year.
 
The former, two-story golf clubhouse was demolished in May. Absolute Demolition, which had recently finished work for the Town of Ocean City, oversaw the demolition.
 
The Ocean Pines Board of Directors in April approved construction of the new building at a guaranteed maximum cost of $1.6 million. The Whayland Company, based in Laurel, Delaware, will oversee construction.

Annual Ocean Pines-Taylor Bank Golf Tournament Returns

The Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council will host the 35th annual Ocean Pines-Taylor Bank Golf Scramble at the Ocean Pines Golf Club on Wednesday, July 17 with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

This year’s event is being held in honor of long-time Ocean Pines Golf Club member Jim Beisler, who passed away last November.

The tournament 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 demonstrated an interest in golf.

The public entry fee is $85 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 the Ocean Pines Yacht Club following the tournament. The entry fee for Ocean Pines Golf members with a cart package is $55, or $70 for members without a cart package.
