Abstract:The Woodlands Estate, owned by the town of Oyster Bay, is on the site of one of the best-looking public golf courses ever built. Designed by Tom Fazio, construction required clearing 20 acres under the watchful eye of environmentalists concerned about the trees and wildlife being affected. Adding a touch of class is the 60-year-old Bruce mansion, which was remodeled into the clubhouse. According to Director of Golf Course Operations Steve Matuza, the greens and tees are Penncross bentgrass, and the fairways are 50 percent Penncross and 50 percent Penneagle bentgrasses. The rough is basically a bluegrass/ fine fescue mixture, with some perennial ryegrass added for fast spring germination and good color.
