Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course to Re-Open Wednesday with Additional Safeguards
In following the direction set by the Governor at Bethpage State Park, the Town of Oyster Bay will reopen the Hon. Joseph Colby Golf Course and Driving Range in Woodbury tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25th.  New safety measures include tee times staggered in 15 minute intervals as opposed to the standard 8 minutes.  We regret to inform residents that golf carts will not be available for rental at this time.  To protect golfers and employees, the use of credit cards is recommended as is registering your tee time online.  The Town encourages residents to continue the practice of social distancing, as all these measures are being taken to ensure the safety of golfers and employees.   The Town will continue to safeguard visitors through intensified cleaning procedures that meet or exceed standards set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
 
“After carefully reviewing our procedures, additional preventative measures are now in place to protect the health of our residents and staff while ensuring patrons can enjoy rounds of golf again,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The safety of our residents and employees will always come first. Please practice social distancing at all times.  Thank you for your cooperation and for assisting everyone with getting through this time safely.”
