Vienna, Va.-based Billy Casper Golf (BCG) has been selected to manage Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club, five miles west of Ocean City on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The engagement increases BCG’s portfolio to 25 courses in the Mid-Atlantic.
At the semi-private Ocean Pines, the firm will oversee all aspects of operations, marketing and public relations, staffing and training, merchandising, clubhouse food and beverage, financial management, golf instruction and special events.
BCG will enroll Ocean Pines in the Audubon International “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” program, ensuring high standards protecting the environment and preserving the natural heritage of golf. Results include efficiencies in maintenance, insurance premiums, energy, water, pesticides, fertilizer, equipment wear and labor.
Open to the public, Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club is part of an 8,000-home community. It features an 18-hole, par-72, 6,927-yard layout and Delmarva Peninsula’s only design by architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The well-appointed clubhouse includes a fully-stocked pro shop, restaurant and locker rooms. There is a comprehensive practice area with a double-ended driving range and sheltered tees, a chipping green, two putting greens and two sand areas.
