Project Includes Complete Course Redesign, new Linx Pavillion, Linx Restaurant & Members Lounge Renovation and More
Brewster, MA – February, 2008: Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod is in the homestretch of opening the new, 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 are now customized to United States Golf Association specifications.
“We are now a more challenging course for our members, but Ocean Edge will still be fun and enjoyable for resort guests,” 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 now one of Cape Cod’s few private fairways, available for play by Ocean Edge Club Members and hotel guests. Golf and sport memberships are available for the avid golfer and sports aficionado, where Members and guests will enjoy access to all 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 226 of 300 available golf memberships, and the course is not scheduled to open until April. 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, expanded locker room facilities, and new this summer, the Linx Pavillion, a 2,500 square-foot venue with views of the 18th hole to serve as additional function space for member and other events.
For those duffers not quite at Tiger’s level, Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod offers golf clinics and lessons available through the Linx Golf Shop with the resort’s own team of PGA professionals, including junior clinics for children ages 6 through 17.
Nicklaus Design recognizes 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, Nicklaus Design. “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 Nicklaus Design golf course is part of a $12 million expansion at Ocean Edge, which also includes adding 7,500 square feet of meeting space throughout the property and renovations to the historic Mansion interior rooms.
