GolfOnLongIsland.com (GOLI) reports about two separate initiaitives by Nassau County and Suffolk County officials to extend discounts to active duty and retired military.
In Nassau, a new “Lifetime Leisure Passport” allows veterans and military personnel to play at the county’s five municipal golf facilities — Eisenhower Park, North Woodmere Park, Bay Park, Cantiague Park and Christopher Morley Park — for a discounted green fee. Veterans can get the new Lifetime Passport at any of the Leisure Pass centers for a one-time fee of $25 (regular resident Leisure Passes are $25, but must be renewed every three years). Only address verification is required every three years to extend the benefits. Active-duty personnel, including spouses and children, can also receive the Pass benefits with valid military identification.
Call (516) 572-0200 or visit the Nassau County website.
The veteran and military 18-hole rates will be $17 on weekdays, $30 on weekends/holidays and $11 for twilight rounds, valid at the Suffolk’s four county-operated courses — Timber Point, Bergen Point, West Sayville and Indian Island. Veterans must submit DD Form 214 or a Suffolk County Veteran Resident ID card issued by the Suffolk County Veterans Agency.
