WESTPORT, Conn. -- Longshore Golf Course in Westport is set to close for three days next week for maintenance work, officials announced.
The golf course will be closed Oct. 7 to 10 "for a full course aeration of greens, tees and fairways," according to a notice from Parks and Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy. H. Smith Richardson golf course in Fairfield "will honor Westport golf passes for the Westport resident greens fees" during the closure.
“A full closure of the course will allow the greens crew the opportunity for an aggressive full course aeration as we continue our efforts to restore course conditions after a difficult summer season,” said McCarthy in the notice. “We are grateful to Gerry Lombardo, Fairfield Parks and Recreation Director, and our neighbors at H. Smith Richardson for extending an invitation to our golfers. We believe the access to H. Smith Richardson will be well received by our customers in lieu of playing temporary greens during the aeration process.”
Longshore is scheduled to reopen on Oct. 11.
