Following the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Long Island's Middle Bay Golf Club will remain closed, according to a CBS New York report.
“The water came over the bulkhead, probably 6 or 7 feet high, and just covered the entire golf course, and just caused so much devastation that we couldn’t rebuild,” said member Steve Cohen.
“I lost my job, and I lost a family here,” said Susan Barnathan. “I’m here 17 years. It just wasn’t a job. It was a family.”
“Right now, I’m currently on a visa program,” said club food and beverage manager Rakesh Sarkar. “Right now, I don’t have a job, so I have to find a job in two or three months to stay in the United States. If nothing happens, I have to go back.”
