July 5, 2017
The Ocean Pines Association makes a “forward swing” toward renovation to the second floor of the Ocean Pines Golf Club. “Fore!” Watch out. The pivot and turn to the second level will significantly improve the building’s accessibility, upgrade its amenities and bring a number of other improvements to the building, which dates back to the early 1970s.
“We’re hoping to hit a hole-in-one with construction work to the entrance and second floor of the facility, which are progressing well,” said Marketing and Public Relations Director Denise Sawyer. “The Ocean Pines Public Works Department is working to complete phase two of the Golf Club project. Most of the interior construction work, within this phase, will take place on the second level, where banquet and wedding services are offered to residents and guests."
