The Lido Golf Club is hosting a series of public shotguns this summer, the next of which are scheduled for this Thursday, June 25 and Monday, June 29. Golfers will be sent out at 7:30 a.m. and receive lunch at the end of the round. Keep an eye on the Lido website for future shotgun starts and course events.
The waterside 18-hole course in Lido Beach sits between Reynolds Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, making wind a major factor. Players must contend with the channel and a series of ponds and inlets throughout most of the back nine. The course was selected by Newsday as one of the Island's best public courses in 2008, and its double-carry 16th hole is part of Newsday's Long Island Dream 18.
