In his afternoon briefing on WWPT-FM (90.3) yesterday, fire inspector Nate Gibbons warned that golfers would find a very different course when Longshore reopens.
He’s not kidding.
Director Jen Fava’s crew has worked tirelessly to get the town jewel back in shape, after it took a particularly hard shot from Tropical Storm Isaias.
Here, for example, is — er, was — a white oak, along the end of the 18th hole fairway. Judging by its rings, it was 275 to 300 years old.
Brian Sikorski — who took the photo above — sent images of more damage, all over the course. Fortunately, no greens were damaged.
But Nate Gibbons was right. Golfers’ views are now very, very different.
