Groundbreaking for new OPA Golf clubhouse scheduled Tuesday 

The Ocean Pines Association invites the public and press to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Association Golf clubhouse, on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 9 a.m.  

The groundbreaking will occur at the Ocean Pines Golf Club on 100 Clubhouse Drive, in Ocean Pines.  

Scheduled to attend are Ocean Pines Board members, General Manager John Viola, Operations Director Colby Phillips, Golf Director John Malinowski, local builder Marvin Steen and others. Viola and Association Vice President Steve Tuttle will say a few words, followed by a brief photo opportunity with stakeholders involved in the project.  

Construction on the new clubhouse will start next week.  

The Board 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. 

Salisbury architectural firm Davis, Bowen and Friedel, Inc. developed plans for the roughly 7,200 single-story building, to include a large meeting room and space for the Tern Grille restaurant, along with an outdoor deck, pro shop and club-fitting area. The Matt Ortt Company will oversee the Tern Grille. 

Absolute Demolition of Ocean City demolished the former two-story Golf clubhouse in May.
