I am proud to announce the grand comeback of the Lenney Peters Junior Golf Tournament at the Crab Meadow Golf Course in Northport on Tuesday, August 30th.
For decades, the Town of Huntington sponsored the Lenney Peters Junior Golf Tournament at the Crab Meadow Golf Course to promote youth golf, sportsmanship and the love of the game. The popular event was founded and first held in 1967 by Crab Meadow’s first golf professional, Lenney Peters.
When Crab Meadow first opened in August of 1965, then Supervisor Robert J. Flynn tapped Mr. Peters as the club’s inaugural professional. Serving at the same time as the head golf professional at the Huntington Crescent Club, Mr. Peters was instrumental in setting a positive course for Crab Meadow. He was a true champion of the game and a fierce advocate of promoting youth golf.
Registration is now open thru August 29th, and the tee-off time will start at 1:30 p.m.
The cost is $35 per player which includes: 18 holes of golf, a barbeque dinner and an awards ceremony.
The Tournament will have three divisions:
Junior (boys and girls ages 10 to 14) Act. #123201-01
Senior (boys and girls ages 15 to 17) Act. #123201-02
Elite (participants with a MGA handicap) Act. #123201-03
To register, please access the online portal here:
You may also register in person at the Crab Meadow Golf Course or at Huntington Town Hall.

A new hearing loop in Town Board room improves audio clarity for those with hearing aids and cochlear implants.
Persons with hearing loss should find it a little easier to follow the proceedings in the Town Board Room at Huntington Town Hall, thanks to the installation of a hearing loop that works with hearing aids and cochlear implants to improve the clarity of sound emanating from the room’s audio system.
Huntington is the only Suffolk County town to have such a system, which has been installed at places such as the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Botanical Garden and the city’s two baseball stadiums, Yankee Stadium and Citi Field.
The system, which cost $8,000, was installed last November by North East Hearing of Miller Place. Installation entailed placing a copper wire in the floor throughout the room. The wire is connected to a control box and existing audiovisual equipment; the wireless technology magnetically transfers a microphone or television sound signal to the receivers in hearing aids or cochlear implants, improving quality. For those without either hearing instrument who need assistance, headphones attached to a lanyard are available (the headphones are sanitized after each use).
The system was installed after meetings with Halesite resident Len Urban, who frequently attended sessions held in the room – including the Town Board, Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals – but was frustrated by his inability to understand what the board members were saying, even after getting a cochlear implant in 2013. Urban met with Town officials and shared research he had done into various systems. Urban also pointed out that a loop system was preferable to a headset system, which the Town had been considering. “A person with a bulky headset would stand out in a crowd and, therefore, many in need would not use them. A loop system required the push of a button with no fuss or embarrassment,” Urban wrote in a recent newsletter of the Hearing Loss Association of America’s North Shore chapter.
Urban wrote about being invited to Town Hall for a demonstration of the newly-installed system. He was asked how things sounded. “I couldn’t answer because of the large lump in my throat,” he said in the article, “so I gave a thumbs-up and signed, THANK YOU.”
In an effort to help provide Town of Huntington residents with more ways to communicate and receive important information, the Town has launched two new Facebook pages:

Please "Like" these pages and share them with your family, friends and neighbors. It's a great way to keep informed of the wonderful programs and services that are offered through the Town of Huntington
