If you were in the mood to swing hickory drivers or play a hole as a reverse scramble (play the worst ball) this Halloween, you're probably out of luck. Crab Meadow Golf Course will not be running its annual "Trick or Treat" scramble on Halloween.
The event featured alternating tricks and treats that were either sweet or sour on the scorecard. "Tricks" like the ones listed above were countered by holes with super-sized cups or a keg at the tee.
Crab Meadow is a hilly and scenic 18 near the Long Island Sound in Northport. The eighth, a relatively short par-5 with out-of-bounds pinching close to the fairway on both sides and a pond in front of the green, is the course's signature hole. On Halloween it was typically a "trick" hole -- if two players splashed into the hazard, the team carded an automatic triple bogey.
