Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony J. Santino has deployed the township’s team of park’s department professionals to refurbish the Lido Golf Club during a two week period between June 4th and June 17th. The refurbished course will re-open on Father’s Day, June 18th. The famed seaside links course will witness a host of improvements including replacing all golf carts, manicuring the greens, rebuilding bridges, repaving paths with new asphalt, refurbishing restrooms and much more. All of the upgrades will be done as the town assumes the management of the venerable links course.
“The time is right for the town to run the day-to-day operations of the Lido Golf Club,” said Santino. “The beautiful south shore course attracts golfers from the entire region to enjoy one of Hempstead Town’s gems. This Father’s Day come on down to our new and improved golf club. It is sure to be a memorable day regardless of your final score.”
The Robert Trent Jones designed seaside links course features elevated greens with massive bunkers, water hazards, and what is commonly called the toughest stretch of finishing holes on Long Island. Sitting on the thin strand of barrier beach between the Atlantic Ocean and Reynolds Channel, the Lido Golf Club is a joy to play and a test for even advanced golfers. Just shy of 7,000 yards, the course is rated among the top 10 public courses in the metro area and is a must play for any golfer visiting the region.
The rates to golf at the club will range from $20 for a resident to play 9 holes during early bird hours to $44 for 18 holes on weekends and holidays. Rates vary based on residency, time of day and day of the week. Discounts are available for veterans, volunteer firefighters, auxiliary police and EMT’s, seniors, and for individuals with disabilities.

“Already considered a top destination for golf fans, I am positive that the improvements and upgrades will give all who visit a reason to schedule another tee time,” concluded Santino.
