Town Golf Course

Membership Applications Being Accepted

Seasonal registration for the 2013 Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course has started. 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. 

Those who join will continue to have the option of purchasing Advanced Tee-Time reservations for tee-times scheduled up to seven days in advance. Tee-Time members will also have the opportunity to schedule tee-off times 30 days in advance. 

Membership applications will be processed in the golf operations building each Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

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.

Annual membership fees, daily green fees, gas carts and tee time reservation fees will all be the same as last year. Fees are posted on the Town’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com. Contact the golf course for more information at 516-677-5980.

News

Last year, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer stopped at Moby Drugs in Farmingdale to highlight the launch of a drug take-back program, which was designed to help residents remove addictive prescriptions out of their medicine cabinets. 

 

Yet, despite studies conducted by the Center for Disease Control—which found 70 percent of those addicted to prescription drugs get them from home, family or friends—federal regulations have prevented pharmacies in New York State from hosting the take-back program. 

Lt. Matt Komorowski of Farmingdale was recently honored with the first annual American Heroes award, for showing bravery when faced with impossible odds. 

 

On Sept. 11, 2001, Komorowski was one of  six FDNY firefighters with Ladder Co. 6, called to the World Trade Center just a short while before the tower collapsed. Arriving at the scene, Komorowski and the members of his ladder company rushed inside the building. As they rushed up the stairs the men of Ladder 6 stopped to assist Josephine Harris, a then 60-year-old Brooklyn grandmother, who was stuck in the stairwell of the building. 


Sports

 

The 2014 Farmingdale Flag Football season kicked off with a blast on Sept. 7.

 

3rd Grade Division

 

The Texans and the Jets played a great opening weekend game, with the Texans getting the victory.  For the Texans, touchdown pass from Joseph Spano to Jaxon Parisi with 20 seconds in the half broke a tie that the Jets never came back from.  The Jets were led by Brendan O’Keefe, who had two rushing touchdowns and Jimmy Caputo, who picked off a pass at the goal line.

 

Farmingdale State College’s women’s tennis team opened the 2014 season with an 8-1 victory over John Jay College (0-1) on Sept. 3. The Rams (1-0) held a 2-1 advantage after doubles play before sweeping the singles matches.
