Golfers Meet New Course Maintenance Company

By James Lomuscio

Westporter Andy Kaplan said last July he had given up on golfing at Longshore Club Park, opting to go as far away as Farmington to play on decent links.

“The greens, they looked diseased,” Kaplan said. “It was like the surface of the moon, brown, discolored.”

Even pockmarked, he said.

But as Kaplan left a Town Hall presentation tonight by principals of ValleyCrest Landscape Companies, he seemed a bit more optimistic about returning to his hometown course this summer. Calabasas, Calif.-based ValleyCrest has a three-year contract with the town and aims to upgrade the 18-hole golf course while saving the town $755,450 attributed to personnel attrition over three years.
