This Week In Jeep:
One golf course will be Reopening this month with a whole new twist on the game.
On Memorial Day, Deer Run Jeep Golf is expected to open on Logtown Road in Ocean City Maryland. For nearly 20 years this was a very popular golf course with beautiful facilities. That is before it closed in 2015. However some new life is being injected into the course, and it has everything to do with Jeeps. There will of course be the traditional golf that we are all familiar with, and they’ll even have a put-put course too.
“It’s going to be something very different,” said Ed Colbert, owner of Deer Run.
According to Colbert, he closed the golf course in 2015 when his wife was ill. His daughter and son-in-law recently approached him with a unique concept, that of jeep golf. “They’re jeep enthusiasts,” Colbert said. “They came up with the idea of using jeeps as golf carts.” Deer Run will offer a nine-hole jeep course, where patrons will use their jeeps to travel the golf cart path between holes. The facility will also offer an area for footgolf, a game in which players kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. “It’s all over the place and growing like crazy,” Colbert said. The third game offered at Deer Run will be pitch and putt, a type of golf. While Deer Run’s jeep course is expected to open Memorial Day weekend, Colbert said it would be some time still before the footgolf and pitch and putt courses are opened. “It’s hard to bring back an overgrown golf course, these things take a little time” he said. In spite of the work ahead, Colbert is eager to get the course up-and-running. He envisions it as a family oriented golf park with a draw that can’t be found elsewhere. While neighbors of the 170-acre property initially expressed concern over the concept when it was brought before the Worcester County Board of Zoning Appeals, Colbert said he worked with them.
