LAND OF THE DUFFERS: U.S. OPEN GOLF GOES PUBLIC IN 2002
Published August 27, 1996
Tomorrow, USGA officials and NY Gov. George Pataki make the formal announcement that the 2002 U.S. Open will be played on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park, a state-run public course. The only other public course to host an Open is Pebble Beach, but the $225 greens fees in Monterrey are about $200 more than those at Bethpage. The course will undergo a USGA-managed reconditioning in the years before the Open (Jeff Williams, NEWSDAY, 8/27).
