Entry deadline July 12; sponsorships still available
(June 17, 2019) 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.
Players may sign up individually or as a foursome. Individuals or incomplete teams will be paired.
Taylor Bank is the longtime event Title Sponsor. This year, the Optimists of Ocean City/Berlin and Deeley Insurance Group are Platinum Sponsors. Mike’s Carpet Connection has again signed on as a Silver Sponsor.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are available, including personal and business tee signs and tee–sign packages. Sponsors are also being sought for long–drive and closest-to-the-pin holes.
Applications may be picked up at the Ocean Pines Golf Club. The entry deadline is July 12, and fees may be dropped off at or mailed to the Golf Shop at Ocean Pines Golf Club at 100 Clubhouse Drive, Ocean Pines, Maryland, 21811. Checks should be made payable to “Ocean Pines Golf Members’ Council.”
