Ocean Edge Resort & Club Reopens
Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod has announced the grand opening of its new $8.5 million Nicklaus Design Golf Course. The total redesign of the former Ocean Edge golf course has remodeled and reshaped all greens and holes, with the most significant changes being increased length, better playability and more challenges on the course. The greens now meet USGA specifications.
"We are now a more challenging course, but Ocean Edge will still be fun and enjoyable for novices as well as accomplished golfers" said Michael Medeiros, head golf professional at Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod. "The new golf course is strategically accurate for all levels of play."
The Ocean Edge Nicklaus Design course is available for play by Ocean Edge Club Members and hotel guests, who also have access to the recreational and social privileges at the Cape Cod resort.
"We are already seeing the benefits of being Cape Cod's only Nicklaus Design course," said Ocean Edge General Manager Robert J. Newman. "We have sold 255 of 300 available golf memberships. It's obvious our club members recognize the value of the Nicklaus name and understand the value of membership here will only grow over time."
As part of the multi-million dollar golf project at Ocean Edge, the Linx Restaurant and Clubhouse have undergone substantial renovations, featuring a members-only lounge and expanded locker room facilities. Also, this summer, Ocean Edge will offer additional function space for member and other events within their new Linx Pavilion, a 2,500-square-foot venue with views of the 18th hole.
Nicklaus Design recognized Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod's unique setting as an asset to the reconstruction. "Ocean Edge is blessed with a great natural landscape: mature trees, rolling topography and the right elevation changes to create a parkland setting," said Chris Rule, design associate p. "In the redesign, we've maximized those features while modernizing the course. New changes include the pure bent grass, increased length overall by about 300 yards and more strategic value with bunkering and sand traps."
The revised course is part of an $18.5 million expansion at Ocean Edge comprised of 7,500 square feet of meeting space throughout the property, including the new Bayside Ballroom and renovations to the historic Mansion interior.
