Public Golf Course In Newtown?
To the Editor:
I have been a resident of Sandy Hook for over 30 years. I have seen money spent on many projects in town, including soccer fields, ball fields, horse trails, and walking trails to name a few. I have yet to see a public golf course built in this town. Fairfield Hills would be a nice place for one and they generate revenue. This is the second largest town in area in the state. But no public golf course. That’s disappointing. I’m sure I am not the first person to propose this. I would rather spend my money here in town and not in Danbury, Waterbury, Watertown, etc. I know of probably 200-300 golfers who either live in Newtown or would come to Newtown to play. As it is, I don’t do much business in Newtown other than a few restaurants and grocery stores.
Would love to see it happen.
