Winter Quarters Municipal Golf Course

By this time our readers are familiar with the beauty of the recent landscaping that has rapidly appeared in various places throughout Pocomoke City. And if you are a reader of the PPE you know that the landscaping was done by Douglas Guns, the Superintendent of the Winter Quarters  Municipal Golf Course and his fabulous crew. What a beautiful difference it has made and we are hoping that Doug will send us some photos of the golf course real soon.

We received an email a couple of weeks ago from Shaun Stevenson who works with Mr. Guns at the gold course. Shaun was kind enough to mention that some of them read the PPE so they are aware of how popular they have become. He also mentioned one very good point. Even though so many people know who Douglas Guns is, know about his crew many people may not know there is even a golf course in Pocomoke City and was kind enough to send an attachment with current rates, cart rentals, etc.

Since I'm not a golf player and know absolutely nothing about the sport here is some info from the Pocomoke City website. And if you are a golfer/prospective golfer be sure to visit the Winter Quarters Municipal  Golf Course.

Thanks, Shaun!

Winters Quarters  Municipal Golf Course

Nestled on the banks of the Pocomoke River, this 9 hole course is open all year long. It's name comes from the days when the Pocomoke Indians found winter shelter in this protected riverside location.

The course is open daily and features bent grass greens, a putting green, numerous sand traps and water hazards.

The course is 2629 yards long for men and 2539 yards for women with a rated par of 35.

Daily greens fees are reasonable, and annual passes are available.
The course may be closed occasionally for a tournament, so please call in advance. The adjacent club house features a pro shop with equipment sales, snack bar, and cart rentals. For tee-times or for questions regarding the golf course, please call (410) 957-1171.
