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. Beisler was president of the Ocean Pines Board of Golf Governors (now the Golf Members’ Council) that is responsible for the tournament and oversees the scholarship and junior golf awards that are presented.

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.

Ocean Pines Golf Group Works to Keep Course in Tip-Top Shape

Sand may be ubiquitous in the Ocean City resort area, but to a group of members at Ocean Pines Golf Club, it’s a commodity that can mean the difference between a hole that’s merely passable and one that’s a pleasure to play.
 
Known as the “Sand Dawgs,” the group was formed in 2018 by Ocean Pines Golf Club member Nelson Fenwick as a way to help maintain the health of the course. The volunteers are tasked with sanding divots – pieces of turf that become loosened when the ball is hit – in the fairway and repairing ball marks on the green.
 
Although the golf course maintenance staff, led by Superintendent Andre Jordan, is responsible for the overall condition of the course, wear and tear caused by play is something that is usually left up to the golfer to handle.
