The building, which is structurally sound, continues to get much-needed attention from the Board of Directors. The Ocean Pines Association (OPA) Board of Directors agreed during a 2016 Board Meeting to replace the roof of the clubhouse. The roof has a history of leaks due to improperly mounted heating, ventilation and air conditioning units, and required immediate work.

Construction on Ocean Pines Golf Club, originally named Seabright and later Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club, began in 1970. Robert Trent Jones Sr. was hired to design the course. It officially opened on June 5, 1972, making it one of the earliest courses in the Ocean City area. Golfing greats Billy Casper, Dean Beman, Marty West and Bob Haley were the inaugural foursome and participated in a special celebrity match that day.
Today, Ocean Pines Golf Club, with its classic Robert Trent Jones design, challenges and delights golfers just as it did in 1972 and in all of the years in between. It is, as originally envisioned, open to the public year-round and offers annual memberships for those wishing to make it their home course. Ocean Pines golf members, local residents, Ocean City vacationers and golfers – both hobbyists and serious players – enjoy the natural beauty of the course, the purity of its design and its superb playing conditions.
