SOUTHAMPTON TOWN CPF PRESERVES THE SOUTHAMPTON GOLF RANGE

The Town of Southampton teed up another victory in land preservation with the purchase of a recreational easement on the Southampton Golf Range through the Community Preservation Fund. 
The Golf Range is located at 668 County Road 39 near Tuckahoe Lane.  The 13 acre property has been operating as a golf range since 1957 by the Hansen Family which intends to continue operating this long running family business. 
The purchase price for the recreational easement is $6.5 million.  The recreational easement will cover the entire property allowing only the existing golf range recreational use and miniature golf facility; peddle cart track as well as the very popular seasonal skating rink.  
Preserving this property ensures an affordable recreational opportunity, centrally located in the Town as well as providing a scenic vista on a heavily traveled roadway.  The property is zoned highway business and had the potential to be developed into a number of other businesses.   80% of the property must remain open with buildings and structures limited to a defined 20% of the total land area.
“By preserving this property we ensure the public will always enjoy this popular recreational facility along County Road 39”, said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “It will continue as an affordable fun experience for local families for years to come.”
Under the agreement, the Town will control the types of recreational activities allowed on the property as well as the fees charged in order to ensure that prices remain affordable to the community.     
The Community Preservation Fund was established in 1999.  To date, 4040 acres have been preserved.  Other CPF-acquired recreational properties include, Poxabogue Golf Course.
