Pleased with the beginning of construction of the new facility are TONH elected officials (l. to r.) Councilmen Tony D'Urso, Tom Dwyer, Angelo Ferrara, TONH Supervisor Jon Kaiman, Councilmen Wayne Wink and Fred Pollack and Receiver of Taxes Rocco Iannarelli. The clubhouse should bring a substantial amount of revenue into the town.
North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilmen Tom Dwyer, Angelo Ferrara, Tony D'Urso, Fred Pollack and Wayne Wink were on hand to place the first shovel in the ground for the new clubhouse at the Town's Harbor Links Golf Course. The building, which will be located on the west side of the present parking lot, features a 4,300 foot banquet hall. It will be able to accommodate 260 guests/with a dance floor and 300 if the dance floor is not used.
"We are very excited to break ground on this new building," said Supervisor Kaiman. "This facility will make a great golf course even better and provide a whole new level of service to our residents."
The new clubhouse will be an approximately 13,600 square foot, single story building. In addition to the banquet hall, the building will also feature a 1,020 square foot pro shop, a 1,040 square foot grill room and a 1,950 square foot kitchen. The new facility will also include exterior patios and sitting areas as well as full men's and women's locker rooms.
North Hempstead built Harbor Links Golf Course on the Morewood property, site of an old sand mine. In 2002, the golf course was recognized by the Audubon International with the designation of signature status, which is contingent upon the courses attention to wildlife conservation and habitat enhancement, water quality monitoring and management, integrated pest management, water conservation, energy efficiency, and waste management. It is only the 29th facility in the world to achieve that honor.
