In response to questions concerning renovations to the Ocean Pines Yacht Club, the Ocean Pines Board of Directors has released the following statement on Wednesday, April 25:
“As part of final contract negotiations with the Matt Ortt Company, the Board pushed to have a more favorable graduated bonus structure. In return, MOC requested that the facility be upgraded as they had previously recommended. They felt strongly that upgrades to the décor and layout of the bar and dining areas were necessary for success. Given that MOC was willing to negotiate the bonus structure, the Board felt the trade-off was reasonable and unanimously agreed to the remodeling and furnishings that were requested.”
The Yacht Club will host a soft opening for an invite-only guest list on Monday, May 14. At this time, the kitchen will undergo” a stress test.” The team will then have a few days to fine-tune its services before opening to the public on Thursday, May 17.
