Major Upgrades Underway At Oyster Bay Golf Course

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board announced that a $5 million upgrade is underway at the Hon. Joseph Colby Golf Course in Woodbury. Improvements include new tee boxes on all 18 holes along with a new irrigation system for the entire course. The course will open to the public on April 1, however, all holes will be played with temporary tees until early June when the new tee boxes are completed. The irrigation replacement project will continue throughout the season; however, the course will remain open with little interruption. The town thanks golfers for their patience during these improvement projects.
“We strive to deliver a great experience for all golfers at our course and these improvements will certainly enhance the playing experience once complete,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Make your reservation, enjoy the beautiful course and spend the day in the Town of Oyster Bay.”
Registration is now underway for the 2024 golf season. The Honorable Joseph Colby Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is situated on 121-acres of Long Island’s coveted Gold Coast. It is a challenging 18-hole, par 70, championship golf course that features meticulously manicured greens complete with cascading waterfalls, narrow fairways, water holes, sand and grass bunkers, as well as a putting green. Completing the scene is a turn-of-the-century mansion that offers a state-of-the-art catering venue that sits majestically in the heart of our beautiful golf course. The ambiance of this one-time Gold Coast estate is rich with elegance and hospitality, but updated with modern amenities. People can enjoy a round of golf as well as the incredible setting while dining outdoors course-side or hosting a private event.
