The Town of Huntington is offering a 10 percent discount on greens fees at Crab Meadow Golf Course because of the damage caused by vandalism. Temporary greens are in place at holes 1, 11 and 17.
“It’s a shame that someone would attempt to destroy one of the Town’s great recreational attractions,” Supervisor Lupinacci said. “Don’t let them spoil your fun — I encourage all who enjoy golf to take advantage of our discounted rates while the three greens are repaired.”
The discount will be taken off all greens fees, excluding the demand-based pricing promotion implemented earlier this year.
The vandalism occurred between 9 p.m. Monday and 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Four greens were damaged: one of the greens sustained insignificant damage, which the Town is repairing in-house. Three temporary greens have been established for holes 1, 11 and 17, where significant damage occurred. Repairs are estimated to take from 4 to 6 weeks.
The Town has filed a police report and the Public Safety Department is ramping up park ranger and security patrols immediately in response to the incident. Information on the crime can be reported by calling 1-800-220-TIPS (1-800-220-8477).
The 18-hole Crab Meadow Golf Course features 6,598 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 71.3 and it has a slope rating of 131 on Blue grass. Designed by William F. Mitchell, ASGCA, the Crab Meadow golf course opened in 1965.
