A new demand-based pricing model will be implemented at Crab Meadow Golf Course during off-peak hours this summer.

Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci said the move is intended to boost revenue for the town while lowering the price to tee off during off-peak hours.

“This is an excellent opportunity for the public to take advantage of the beautiful 18-hole golf course at Crab Meadow,” Lupinacci said. “It’s one of several creative revenue-producing measures the town is working on that will allow us to continue to provide new and existing services to our residents without increasing the tax burden.”

At the 18-hole course located at 220 Waterside Road, non-residents currently pay $46 for tee times between 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday.

The new pricing model reduces that rate to $29 and $21 for seniors and disabled persons, the rates residents pay with the Town of Huntington Golf Card. Residents who do not purchase the Golf Card can also take advantage of the new weekday rates.

Town Director of Parks and Recreation Greg Wagner is confident the move will draw more golfers to Crab Meadow.

“The more we can expose and attract our neighbors, the more word spreads and generates interest in returning for another great day of golf and food at Macs at the Meadow,” Wagner said. “The new pricing model will remain in effect for the next few months, so please come take advantage of this opportunity and join us for a great day on the course.”
