Come to The US Open in Bethpage, Long Island! The pictures here will tell the story of this lovely place, Bethpage State Park.
It has recently been announced that once again Long Island, New York will host the 2009 US Open at its famed Bethpage Golf Course at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, Long Island, New York. This beautiful and challenging golf course and State Park is so large it extends into both Nassau and Suffolk Counties and borders the towns of Farmingdale, Bethpage, Old Bethpage and Plainview.
We were thrilled to have the US Open held here in 2002 at their famous BLACK COURSE which was designed by architect A. W. Tillinghast and is one of the most challenging courses in the Country with it's narrow fairways, high roughs, well placed borders and small greens. Some consider this his finest work. This historic building was opened in 1932 and in addition to the huge expanse of golf is home to two restaurants, one of which is The Oak Room which has won awards and a wonderful catering facility at which many events are held including weddings (call early to book!). Every year The Bethpage State Park caters an event for all members of the Department of Parks and Recreation at this lovely site. Two years ago they hosted one that was about Wholistic Health and I was included as a presenter along with many other modalities of all natural healing.
They were kind enough to allow me to share these photos of this Bethpage State Park. In addition to golf, they also have picnic facilities, tennis courts, brindle paths, hiking, biking and cross country skiing along with a beautiful nature trail.
Tiger Woods won the 2002 US Open on the very difficult black course and it's no surprise. Tiger says he always wears RED when playing an Open because it provides him with the Energy he needs to WIN (sound familiar?). I just could be that he knows a thing or two about Feng Shui. I'm sure many of us are looking for a win from him again! In addition to several large hotel chains, be advised that some people's homes back up to the course; in 2002 some actually rented out their backyards or parts of their homes to the many visitors from all over the country who attended.
If you'd like information about booking an event or about the US Open, please feel free to call them at (516) 249-0701. Enjoy some of the pictures of this fabulous place. Here's a Tour with the pictures telling the story:
