Pocomoke City officials have announced a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for their new clubhouse building at Winter Quarters Municipal Golf Course.  The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 5 beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the clubhouse at the end of Winter Quarters Drive adjacent the Pocomoke River.  Mayor Bruce Morrison and City Council members will cut a ribbon to officially open the new clubhouse building which replaces the previous building that was flooded during  Hurricane Sandy.  The new building is approximately 1,200 sq. ft. with a private meeting room, outdoor deck, pro shop, snack bar, and restrooms.  The outdoor deck has beautiful views of the golf course and is adjacent to the putting green.  The snack bar and pro shop offers a variety of sandwiches, soft drinks, and snacks, as well as golf supplies including golf balls, tees, apparel, golf clubs, and cart rentals.  The new building was built by Three Guys Construction Co. of Westover, Maryland.  Coffee, donuts and other items will be provided for all attendees at the grand opening ceremony.

In order to celebrate the Grand Opening of the new building, the Mayor and Council have agreed to provide free golf for any area golfers on either Saturday, April 5 or Sunday, April 6.  Golfers may play one round of 18 holes on either day at no cost.  The purpose of this promotional weekend is to highlight the new clubhouse building and to show off our beautiful nine-hole course located adjacent to the Pocomoke River.  The golf course features bent grass greens, water hazards, sand traps, paved cart paths, and the occasional eagle flying overhead.

Winter Quarters Golf Course is available for fundraising tournaments at discounted rates for all non-profit groups in our area.  The City also encourages local groups and businesses to form employee leagues to enjoy golf at special rates in the late afternoon hours.  Golfers are asked  to call 401.957.1171  or 410.957.1333 to reserve a tee time for either Saturday or Sunday, April 5 or 6, and to reserve an optional golf cart.
