You may rent golf carts and golfing equipment, such as clubs, golf bags, golf bag carriers, at the Pro Shop any time it is open. Your handicapper suggests that if you want to get a golf cart, you come early on Mondays.
We also have available at the Pro Shop golf shirts commemorating the 20 years of Brambley Golf League, founded by 90-year-old Dick Brambley, a golf legend in Ocean City area. Many senior golfers continue his tradition by playing into their later years. The tee shirts are only $15.
All those who have played in the tournament in prior years are welcome back for the 2012 season. Tee times are 8 to 10 a.m. for the Brambley on Mondays. Those who have never played with us but would like to play golf with a great group of men and women are welcome to join us after establishing their handicap the first time they play in the tournament.
Our next tournament will be Monday, June 25. We will have a special event on June 25, where golfers will be allowed to use up to three mulligans per round at $1 per mulligan. Scores should be low.
