I took the liberty of emailing our Nassau legislator Denise Ford regarding the Nickerson beach Miniature Gold course and here is what she said:
I received (a letter) from the Commissioner of Parks. He indicated that this project will go out to bid, as required, and he is hoping that the work will begin in the summer so the miniature golf will not be available this summer in Nickerson. Like yourself, I am looking forward to miniature golf. Leg Denise Ford
Of course I figured this wouldn’t be done over night, but it’s still totally awesome that it’s moving forward. I’m glad that it’s not just something that was mentioned as a ‘possibility’ – like the proposed zoo for Eisenhower Park that Tom Suozzi mentioned a few years back…. Anyways, kudos to Denise Ford for getting back to me on this subject.
