Golf courses affected by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy have a long road ahead after water levels flooded fairways and winds ripped apart buildings. Despite their challenges, many clubs offered their communities a helping hand after the storm. Rockaway Hunting Club on Long Island collected donations of supplies for those affected and the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club gave displaced residents a free hot shower in its locker rooms. "We may be a private club, however, our members are residents from the local communities and part of our mission is to be a good neighbor to all and give back to those in need," says Dan Brown, MBYC commodore.
