Here’s the press release from Nassau County:
Following a cold winter, the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums is scheduled to reopen two of its four nine-hole golf courses on Friday, March 13, 2009, weather permitting, announced Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi.
The two courses, in Bay Park in East Rockaway (516-571-7242) and Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills (516-571-8120), have been closed since December; they will be open six days a week. The two other county nine-hole courses at Cantiague Park (516-571-7061) and North Woodmere Park (516-571-7814) have remained open during the winter, as weather allows. The initial hours for all four courses will be from approximately 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Each of the four nine-hole par-30 courses provides a slightly different playing experience. Christopher Morley, at 1,603 yards, is a small but hilly course surrounded by trees, and the only course located on the North Shore. The Bay Park course is located by the water and has two holes over 300 yards, with total yardage of 1,956. At 2,282 yards, North Woodmere’s course is the largest of the nine holes, with four holes over 300 yards, two of which approach 400 yards. Like Bay Park, the course is located on the South Shore by the water. Cantiague Park’s golf course is centrally located in Hicksville and offers a flat and easy-to-traverse property, with total yardage of 1,878.
At Eisenhower Park’s golf facility, the 18-hole Blue and White courses are open seven days a week as weather allows. The championship Red course is scheduled to open later in March or early April. For information, call 516-572-0327/28.
Nine-hole course fees for a Nassau County resident with a Leisure Pass are $10 to $15; non-Leisure Pass holders and nonresident fees are $20 to $30. Motor cart rentals and caddy cart rentals are available.
