Middle Bay Country Club, hard hit by Super Strom Sandy, is re-opening as South Bay Country Club in the coming weeks – around mid to late May. The club had been expirecening declining membership over the last few years. Sandy’s damage pushed the country club over the edge and into bancrupecy.
South Bay CC will be operating as a semi-private club, this means that it will be open to the public. Depending on the membership level, members will enjoy priority tee times and unlimited golf. Check out the details here.
Here’s the word from South Bay’s Facebook page:
