Three temporary greens are in place at Crab Meadow Golf Course in Northport after an act of vandalism last week destroyed the regular surfaces, and as a courtesy to players the course is offering a 10% discount on green fees.
According to an announcement on the Crab Meadow website, the greens on holes #1, #11 and #17 sustained major damage and have been replaced by temporary surfaces. An article by the The Times of Huntington-Northport indicates the vandalism occurred between the close of business on July 30 and around 2 a.m. on July 31, with damages totaling approximately $124,000. The surfaces were gouged by some type of blunt object.
A fourth green was vandalized but can be repaired in-house, the Times reported. Repairs to the three destroyed greens will take approximately four to six weeks.
For the inconvenience, Crab Meadow is offering a 10% discount on all green fees except the already-discounted non-resident weekday rate. For more information, contact the course at (631) 757-8800.
