History

In 1921, Harvey Lakes hired Donald Ross to design Ocean City Country Club. Ross’ touch is limited, however, as Lake hired Willie Park, Jr. to complete the golf course a year later. Ocean City Country Club opened in 1923.

In 1972, the club hired George and Fazio to redesign the 18-hole golf course and to add a driving range to the property. Sands Casino purchased Ocean City Country Club in 1981 and renamed it Sands Country Club. In 1988, Archie Struthers, a former golf professional, and a group of limited partners purchase the club. From 1988-97, it hosts the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

In 2004, Mark Benevento, former Philadelphia 76ers owner Pat Croce and a group of limited partners purchase the club and rename it “Greate Bay.” The Somers Point, N.J. scenery is abound throughout the golf course.
