Public Works Department Completes Tern Grille
Phase one of the renovations to the Ocean Pines Golf Club has been completed. It included work to The Tern Grille, men and women’s bathrooms, men’s locker rooms and the patio.
The 47-year-old building dates back to 1970, when construction on Ocean Pines Golf Club, originally named Seabright and later Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club, began. Now it’s out with the old and in with the new tile, carpet, sinks, countertops and paint.
“The renovations to the locker rooms and bathrooms have given the downstairs of the clubhouse a rejuvenated and fresh look,” PGA Director of Golf John Malinowski said. “The golfers have responded well to the changes and are looking forward to the completion of the new construction and floor plan upstairs this summer.”
Located next to the Ocean Pines Golf Shop, the newly renovated and expanded Tern Grille restaurant is serving a new dining experience. The pub-like restaurant is now featuring an extended bar, an expanded dining area, more flat-screen televisions, a new menu and live entertainment.
“We can now accommodate larger groups of golfers and non-golfers at The Tern Grille,” Venue Director Brian Townsend said. “We have more than tripled our dining capacity.”
