Men's & Ladies' Tournament Winners
The Ocean Pines men's and ladies' groups took to the course this past week for two fun annual events.
The Ocean Pines Men's Golf Association held its President's Cup tournament on Saturday, May 11. With rain throughout the forecasts, the event was played in warm sunshine and cool temperatures - a great day to be on the golf course. Al Wolski did a repeat as the Low Gross Champion and Warren Oxford was the Low Net Champion. The group's next major event will be the Ryder Cup Championship on Saturday & Sunday, June 29-30.
President's Cup Winners
Low Gross: Al Wolski, 83
Low Net: Warren Oxford: 88 - 23 = 65
Improve Pace of Play in 3 Easy Steps
We're golfers, too, and know that playing at a snail's pace can ruin a round. While some factors (like "cart-path only" or a full tee sheet) are unavoidable, there are some steps golfers in Ocean Pines can take to play faster, smarter and better.
1. Play the Right Set of Tees
There's no need to make your round harder than it needs to be. Especially if you're not familiar with the course, try playing from a shorter set of tees. You'll speed up play and probably have more fun, too.
Srixon/Cleveland Golf Demo Day
Join us on the driving range and try out the latest equipment from Srixon and Cleveland Golf on Wednesday, May 8. Free Srixon and Cleveland Golf club fittings will be held from 12-4pm; free Srixon ball fittings will be held from 4-6pm. No registration is required. Open to the public! For more information, please call 410-641-6057.
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.
New Clubhouse Coming to Ocean Pines Golf Club
Construction is slated to begin this year on a new clubhouse! The brand-new facility will feature an expansive bar and grill, dedicated space for club repair and fittings and a large deck designed to take full advantage of the sweeping views of our 18th hole and pond.
What will stay the same are our classic Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed course, friendly staff, superb practice facilities and incredible golf value.
Stay tuned for additional updates and progress reports, but in the meantime check out the proposed design below!
