Golf members honor Stiles, raise funds for charity during annual Bavarian Hops Classic

94.Bavarian.Hops.Golf.8.27.2021Ocean Pines golfers raised $1,200 during the 15th annual Ernie Stiles Bavarian Hops Scramble, held Aug. 27 at the Ocean Pines Golf Club.
The event, each year, is held in honor of the late Ernie Stiles and is hosted by the Ocean Pines Golf Members Council. Don McMullen and Bob Long coordinated this year's event.
To date, the scramble has raised more than $30,000 for local charities.
“Ernie’s idea was simply to bring together some good people and go out for nine holes, have some good fun, and support some good causes,” McMullen said.
Long said the event always has a lighthearted atmosphere. Longtime traditions include a toast, “Nostrovia,” to good health before teeing off. Players then “head to the course and let their hair down a bit,” he said.
“Ernie ran the Hops Scramble on his own for many years as a fun event,” Long said. “He charged $5 to play and all the money would get paid out to the skin winners. Often, no skins were cleared and the money would go to the charities.”
