The Longshore Golf Course closed for the winter season at the end of play Monday.

The 18-hole municipal course will re-open in the spring.

"On behalf of the town of Westport, golf professional John Cooper, Superintendent Dan Rackliffe and the entire staff at Longshore, we extend our appreciation to our loyal customers and wish all of you a happy and healthy new year," Parks and Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy said in a statement announcing the closing. "We look forward to seeing you in the spring."
