The first public golf course built in Long Island in more than 20 years opened this month as part of a 55+ luxury multifamily community. Heatherwood Luxury Apartments, an apartment development company based in Long Island, New York, developed the community and the nine-hole golf course, Heritage Spy Ring Golf Club. It has advertised 1,000 to 1,600 square feet apartments for $3,445+ a month.
The community comprises 200 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with views of the course and various floorplans. Other apartment amenities include a lawn area, outdoor pool with sun shelf, state-of-the-art fitness center and private fitness studio, physical therapy rooms, club room, private dining room, conference/event room, game room, tennis court, pickle ball court, and nature trails.
“Projects of this scale are complex and particularly difficult to execute on Long Island,” said Christopher Capece, Heatherwood’s President. “Our partnership with the Town of Brookhaven resulted in the construction of a ‘best-in-class’ multifamily community and a new public golf course built with private Heatherwood investment … Building Spy Ring as a public course is another example of Heatherwood’s long-standing commitment to community.”
Tyler Rae designed the golf course. Rae previously worked with Ron Prichard and Keith Foster, and has completed several renovations and restorations. This appears to be his first new build.
Heatherwood also owns Pine Hills Country Club in Manorville and announced an extensive renovation of the 18-hole PGA course that will include major pond and bunker renovations, among other plans.
