The Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums reopened two of its four nine-hole golf courses for the 2010 new season on March 18.
The two courses, in Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills (516-571-8120) and Bay Park in East Rockaway (516-571-7242), have been closed since December; they will be open six days a week (Morley is closed Monday; Bay is closed Wednesday). The two other county nine-hole courses at Cantiague Park (516-571-7061) and North Woodmere Park (516-571-7814) remained open during the winter and are open daily.
Each of the 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 have been open throughout the winter. The championship Red course is scheduled to open later in March or early April. For more information, call 516-572-0327 ext. 28.
