Bavarian Hops Golf Match Raises Money for Charity

What started out 12 years ago as a fun afternoon of golf for local players has evolved into an annual event that has raised over $20,000 for charitable organizations.
 
A much-anticipated tournament at Ocean Pines Golf Club, the Bavarian Hops Match – or the “beer match” to its many enthusiastic supporters – was the brainchild of Ocean Pines golf member and resident Ernie Stiles, who wanted to introduce a fun event at the course similar to some he had experienced up north.
 
“The whole intention was just to have fun with it,” Stiles said. He said he wanted players to enjoy some beer, play some golf and “bust and heckle” each other.

Junior Golf Going Strong in Ocean Pines

Junior golf continues to grow at Ocean Pines Golf Club, where record-breaking participation and support from local organizations this past year has meant that more young golfers are enjoying the sport than ever before.
 
The cornerstone of the junior golf program – summer golf camp – has continued to grow over the past five years. The camp’s blend of instruction, food and fun has paid off. This past summer, 131 golfers participated in four sessions of the four-day camps, the most ever. In fact, all four sessions sold out.
 
Ocean Pines Golf Club also offers junior clinics in the fall and spring. The clinics have also proven popular, necessitating additional sessions to accommodate the demand.
 
Ocean Pines PGA Director of Golf John Malinowski said he’s seen a change in the people participating in junior golf programs. “I’ve noticed that more parents are signing kids up for clinics and camps because they’re excited about seeing them involved in golf itself, not just because they’re looking for a summer activity,” he said.
 
The rise in junior participation at the course has created a need for more equipment, something that local golf groups have been eager to support.
