Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums will now allow residents to play continuously from 4:30 p.m. until dark on any of the county’s four nine-hole golf courses.
This promotion is open to all Nassau County residents with a Leisure Pass. The fee is $15 per person and $8.50 for seniors.
The four courses participating in the promotion are Bay Park in East Rockaway (571-7242); Cantiague Park in Hicksville (571-7061) North Woodmere Park (571-7814); and Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills.
“Just in time for the heart of golf season, this promotion rewards our residents and customers during days and times when there is less demand for playing time,” says County Executive Mangano. “I encourage our residents to take advantage of this offer.”
Each of the courses provides a slightly different playing experience. 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.
Christopher Morley, which is closed on Mondays, is the smallest of the four at 1,603 yards, but offers hilly terrain surrounded by trees; it is also the only course located on the North Shore.
