What is the dress code for Ocean Pines Golf Club?

No blue jeans are allowed, no tennis shorts, short shorts, or cutoffs. Shirts must have a collar and be tucked in. Non-metal spike golf shoes are required. All dress must be golf-appropriate.

Can I bring a non-playing guest on the course to watch while I play?

No. Our course is generally very busy, and spectators could cause a safety issue, or a distraction to other golfers.

How early should I show up for a tee time?

You should arrive at least 20 minutes before your tee time in order to check in at the counter and the starter. If a group does not show up in advance of their time, the time may be given to another group. Showing up early also gives you the time to better prepare for play: hit some warm up balls, practice putting; get something to eat, purchase equipment, etc.

How do I use the driving range?

The double-ended driving range, which features both open-air and covered stalls, is open to the public year-round. Buckets of balls may be purchased in the Golf Shop for $3 for a small bucket, $5 for a medium bucket and $7 for a large bucket.

When was the Ocean Pines golf course built, and who is the designer?

The course was built in the early years of Ocean Pines, and opened to play in 1973. The course designer was the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr.

What is the secret to golf?
