Lloyd Shulman and his sister Gail Koster have taken on the role of investing their own money into this South Shore gem known as Middle Bay. This club devastated by Sandy is now being run by the property owners of over 50+ years.
As the director of golf and a club professional here for over 14 years I see significant changes already and who better to take on this task then the person who has a passion for the property that has been in his family for over a half a century. His loyalty to the property is unrivaled by other potential management teams and the purchases of a new equipment fleet as well as 80 new golf carts, a half a dozen new utility vehicles and the redesign of a new 1/2way house/cafe at the turn is a testament to his commitment.
Justin Buhler, former assistant at the Meadowbrook club, is on his way to restoring Middle Bay to the way it once was. Who better to have then Head Green Superintendent John Carlone of the Meadowbrook club the former Middle Bay Superintendent a phone call away for a smooth transition. Lloyd Shulman's dedication to this property will benefit the business, the golf course the community and the entire golfing industry -- and I am eager to display my knowledge and ability to making this one of the most popular South Shore golf courses in New York. It gives me great pleasure to work with Shulman and Sal Cappuzzo the COO of Shulman's management empire.
