History will be made on Friday as Nassau Country Club opens its grounds for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, playing host to the tournament which was last played on its greens 100 years ago. The tournament, conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA), will have 156 women from all over the world competing for the Robert Cox Trophy and the title of national champion, including twin sisters Jennifer and Kristin Coleman, whose grandfather is a member of the club.
For the Coleman sisters, 21, of Rolling Hills Estates, CA, the tournament will almost be like a homecoming: they began playing golf at age 5, and have played Nassau Country Club a number of times over the years while visiting their grandfather, Daniel Coleman, who lives in Glen Cove.

A public hearing was held last week to determine the fate of hookah lounges within the city limits of Glen Cove: it was decided they shall not be allowed. The City Council and Mayor Reginald Spinello voted to ban such establishments, a move that was well received by the majority of people present; only two people expressed opposition to the measure.
“These establishments are becoming rather trendy,” said Mayor Spinello.
