The Longshore golf course opens in about 6 weeks.
There are still no carts or balls in the pro shop. A new pro has not yet been hired.
Now there’s no greenskeeper either.
Michael Golden — who earned raves as head golf course superintendent at Longshore, turning the facility into Golfweek’s #8 public place to play in 2016 — has moved on to Sterling Farms in Stamford.
A number of Longshore golfers have expressed concern about the unsettled situation. As reported in December on “06880,” longtime pro John Cooper felt that the terms offered for renewal of his contract were untenable.
The town has reworked its RFP, but so far has not reached an agreement with a new pro.
Time for a mulligan?
