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.

So why are these professional tree guys clearing a town golf course when you can’t get there because the streets are littered with trees? I got nothing against golf but how can this be justified when we have a real emergency with our roads? seems like someone has their priorities misplaced. Please let us hear a rationale for this.
