I had a chance to visit the once popular Bridgehampton, New York racetrack known as 'The Bridge'.
It was sold off to developers who proceeded to build a high end private golf club who coincidently name it 'The Bridge'. A portion of the back straight and the original bridge was left intact to go along with the club's racing theme. Membership fees are $500,50.00 per person, yup that is no typo.
Here are few recent photos of this once famous track.
Spend a lot of weekends at that track. Hamburgers falling off of the hibachi into the sand... then serving it to a friend. Ahhh, memories. They should have the golf course and the track open at the same time.
I must say that I am a true fan of golf but this seams a little over the top. I have seen a trend developing here in WI where golf courses seem to be selling themselves off. At least a nine to make room for condos or homesites which is more profitable. There is no denying that there are many more golf courses than are demanded. I do not belive this to be true with road courses. With the few tracks we have in this area many people I know are ready to develop thier own. Seeing the demand for track time from riders like us to car clubs etc. I could see more profitability in having a well managed racing, training facility. Sad to see another one go.
