BREWSTER, Mass — Cape Cod’s award-winning Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is open. The award-winning property is welcoming visitors with a refreshed health and sanitation plan, renovations to its one-bedroom villas and a new lineup of golf packages with flexible booking policies.
The 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course and nine tennis courts are also open, and the property is also open for overnight stays and will resume operations for dining and recreational activities under its new social distancing and safety guidelines. The well- being of resort guests, members and staff remains the highest priority.
To ensure that guests feel at ease and secure, the resort’s executive team has created a comprehensive health and sanitation plan in accordance with the CDC and local authorities to provide a safe environment for a worry-free and relaxed getaway. Notable actions include reduced capacity and a minimum of six feet of space between tables at on-site restaurants, enhanced room service and takeout options, thorough guestroom sanitation plans, housekeeping services omitted upon request, and social distancing practices during check-in and check-out.

Guests will also find the transformation of its secluded one-bedroom Britterige Villas following a $5.5 million investment. Primed to create the ideal vacation retreat, these 116 villas are well-suited for extended stays both for families and couples. The 20 Lower Level Britterige Villas were refreshed with a top-to-bottom paint job and enhanced furnishings, while the remaining 96 Britterige Villas, including the signature Britterige Blueberry Pond Villa, received full-scale renovations that touched every corner of the 750 sq. ft. villas, including new carpet, furnishings, kitchenette, décor and fixtures
Ocean Edge has also launched a series of private, carefully curated experiences spaced across the resort’s expansive 429 acres, such as private oyster tours in the Brewster Flats and individual archery lessons.
