Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announces that the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums will reopen Eisenhower Park’s championship Red Course and two of its nine-hole golf courses on Friday, March 16.
The two 9-hole courses, at 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 will be open daily throughout the summer and fall months.
Each of the nine-hole 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 county 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, and will continue to be open daily. The championship Red Course will be open every day but Monday, beginning on March 16. For more information please call: (516) 572-0327 or (516) 572-0328.

“We have sent our proposals out there,” said Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, “we are just waiting for the CSEA membership to approve it.”

The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships. Manhasset headed into the post-season with high aspirations and battled it out with rival Wantagh High School for two weekends in a row—at both the Class Country Championships and the State Qualification race—coming up just short on both occasions, but achieving many milestones along the way.
