The Baiting Hollow Club has been named Long Island Course of the Year for 2012 by the Long Island Golf Course Association. It was a departure for the group that represents course owners, which has presented its honor the previous two years to Rock Hill and Great Rock, which are daily fee courses. Baiting Hollow is a private club.
"A new administration, new staff and commitment to the game all fit well with our purpose: For the Good of the Game," said Richard Rocchio, executive director of the association. Baiting Hollow is scheduled to host the Long Island qualifier for the U.S. Open on May 16.
