File this under "good things come in smaller packages." Pine Shore Golf is a good thing and the people who run it are largely responsible for its appeal.First there is its principal guiding light, Al Janis. Born into a golf construction family, his father, James, built DuPont Country Club in Wilmington, Del. Mr. Janis came to Ocean City in the early 1970s and decided he would like to settle his family there.Doing what he does best, Mr. Janis acquired land for a golf course, but was unable to pick up the acreage necessary for a full-sized layout.

There is a golf course on Beauchamp Road, the next right turn after the Ocean Pines North Gate, which I used to call a little course but it now commands full respect for its playability, not the least of which are its tees and greens. If you are visiting the area, or are an area resident, drop over to the Pine Shore Golf 27-hole facility.Its three nines of only 3,000 yards carry pars of 30 and I've talked to many people who enjoy playing there and some of those people are very low handicap golfers.

There were only two gross prizes.

With the pressure lessened on day two, Elinor Lees swept by the first day's leader -- and 1992 winner -- Sandy Bunting to win the Ocean Pines Ladies Golf Championship (OPLGA).Ms. Lees won with a 95-90--185 two-day total, coming from behind Ms. Bunting, who had led by five strokes after the first day of play but finished with 90-97--187.Ms. Lees says the pressure was less on the second day of the Aug. 2-3 tournament and it became a matter of competing and not thinking about the score. She caught Ms. Bunting on the ninth (27th)

Joe Lynch of Baltimore County has been playing golf for only two years but has made progress quickly. He usually plays at Pine Shore Golf -- a tough 27-hole layout on Beauchamp Road that features three nines of par 30 each -- with octogenarian John McQuay.Recently, Lynch shot a 69 over 18 holes, topping McQuay for the first time. Even though 69 is 9-over-par, it's impressive since Pine Shore owner Al Janis has a standing challenge to anyone who plays par 72 courses to see how close to par they will be on the difficult course.

Once upon a time there was a wonderful place that offered sun, sand and surf to tired visitors who came there to be rejuvenated.But Ocean City didn't offer much in the way of golf opportunities for those who use that game as part of their rejuvenation. In fact, before 1959 there was no golf of the tees, fairways and greens variety in the area -- only miniature golf.Then some far-thinking people joined with some golfers and created the Ocean City Golf & Yacht Club, which eventually grew to the handsome 36-hole layout it is today.
