Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course Soon to Open For 2014 Season

Registration to Begin at the Golf Course on Wednesday, February 26th with No Fee Increases

 

The Town of Oyster Bay’s Golf Course will soon be ready for another season of play. “Depending upon the weather, our outstanding facility is expected to be ready for play by March 18th,” Councilman Macagnone said. “Golf membership registration will start on Wednesday, February 26th at the golf course and there will be no fee increases for the 2014 season.”

 

With the Town holding the line on fees, Councilman Macagnone said patrons will be treated to an outstanding experience and value. “Our members are all aware that rates at surrounding golf courses have been steadily increasing, while rates at the Town’s course will remain the same,” Councilman Macagnone said. “With its challenging, yet very playable holes and its pastoral setting on the grounds of a former estate, the Town of Oyster Bay’s beautiful, championship golf course in Woodbury ranks among the most popular municipal courses on Long Island.” By registering, seasonal members will have the opportunity to enjoy all of the amenities that the Town of Oyster Bay’s renowned 18-hole par 70 championship golf course has to offer. Annual membership fees, daily green fees, gas carts and tee time reservation fees will all be the same as last year. “With the cold weather months still upon us, playing a round of golf seems a long way off,” Councilman Macagnone said. “In reality, the season is right around the corner.” Fees are posted on the Town’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com.

 

In addition to the cost-saving benefits of seasonal membership, those who join will continue to have the option of purchasing Advanced Tee-Times. “People work hard and have busy schedules,” Councilman Macagnone said. “The Town takes pride in having affordable programs that make it easy to enjoy a day of recreation.” Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course membership applications will be processed in the golf operations building beginning Wednesday, February 26, 2014, and each Wednesday through Sunday thereafter from 9am to 3pm. When purchasing a membership for the new season, each applicant must present two proofs of residency. Both must be original documents and contain the name and address of the applicant. At least one of the two documents MUST contain a photo of the applicant, such as a New York State driver’s license. The second Proof-of-residency may be an automobile registration, utility bill or Town of Oyster Bay property tax bill.

 

On the grounds of the golf course, a turn-of-the-century mansion clubhouse offers The Woodlands Catering Facility and Golf Bar (516-921-5707). Golfers can also take a break at the “Halfway House”, located on the 8th tee, where they will have access to amenities such as restroom facilities and a snack bar.

Town Of Oyster Bay To Name Golf Course In Honor Of Joseph Colby

Former Town Supervisor and State Supreme Court Justice Recognized

 

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto announced that on Saturday, May 18th, 2013, at 11:30 a.m., the Town will conduct a ceremony to officially re-name its golf course in honor of Joseph Colby, a resident of Massapequa Park who served as the Town of Oyster Bay’s 56th Supervisor. The Honorable Joseph Colby was appointed Supervisor in 1977 and was elected to that office five times in the following ten years. He was then elected as a New York State Supreme Court Justice in 1988, a post he held through his retirement from public service in 1992. The unveiling will take place at the main entrance of the course off South Woods Road in Woodbury.

 

“When the sign for Honorable Joseph Colby Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is unveiled, it will celebrate an outstanding career in public service,” Supervisor Venditto said. “Joseph Colby has always had the needs of the public as his top priority and has been widely respected for his innovation and responsiveness. This golf course will now forever bear his name as a tribute to his outstanding legacy.”

 

The Town’s Par-70 championship golf course opened to great acclaim in 1989 and is widely considered to be among the finest courses in the country. The site has a distinctively attractive topography and landscape. Once an expansive gold coast estate, the course was designed around the natural contours of the land, including open meadows, dense forested areas and natural water bodies. “While Supervisor, Joseph Colby’s vision was to protect and preserve this impressive expanse of beautiful property,” Supervisor Venditto said. “Just as Colby envisioned, this golf course was a perfect example of both aesthetics and function.”

 

Formerly known as the Bruce Estate, the 120 acre parcel of pristine land, now serving as the Town’s golf course, was acquired by the Town in the 1970’s. Although there were many proposed uses for the property, it was Supervisor Colby who thought that a golf course may best showcase and preserve the land. Even the manor on the estate was kept intact because of its unique and historically significant architecture. The building has since been beautifully refurbished, while still maintaining its architectural character, and serves as the course’s club house, pro-shop, restaurant and catering hall.

 

“Joe Colby’s leadership role with respect to advancing the concept of a golf course on the Bruce Estate cannot be understated,” Supervisor Venditto said. “His stewardship was a key component to making it a reality. Now, thanks to his vision, the golf course bearing his name truly stands as one of the Town’s crown jewels.”

 

Supervisor Venditto said that Joseph Colby, now retired with his wife Adelle and living in Florida, has proudly dedicated his life to public service. “His collective efforts have made a positive difference in the Town that is still evident today,” Supervisor Venditto said. “He always cared about the Town and its residents and this renaming ceremony, at the golf course recognizing the Honorable Joseph Colby, is the Town’s way of showing how much we care about him.”
