Having closed after superstorm Sandy-related damage costs forced bankruptcy, Middle Bay Country Club in Oceanside has been resurrected in a deal between the landlord and a group headed by Tariq Khan of Hewlett Harbor. Khan, a Middle Bay member, owns a chain of convenience stores and has been honored by several organizations for his philanthropy.

Former Wheatley Hills pro Doug Mauch, who also is part of the group, said it will be semi-private with 100 members and that it will open May 23. He added that it will be re-branded South Bay Country Club in honor of Oceanside's original name.
