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.

There is a floral treasure in Manhasset, something unique: it’s the greenhouse in front of Manhasset Florist on Orchard Street. “Having my own greenhouse ensures premium plant growth and creates optimum conditions. This allows me to offer the healthiest plants to my customers,” says owner Alexander Otis. Indeed, the plants look truly perfect and a delightful scent of blossoms fills the air of the greenhouse.
“My father bought the business and property 45 years ago. During those years, he opened a total of five flower shops in Nassau County,” said Alex. His father trained him and his sister Aretta in the flower business. “While still attending high school we both helped on Saturdays and during our vacations,” he explains. Alex graduated from the New York Institute of Technology as an architect and worked as an engineer for over six years before returning to his roots to help his father manage his five flower shops and to run one, Garden City Florist. “When my father retired in 1999, I took over Manhasset Florist & Greenhouse and Aretta took over Port Washington Florist.”
