NEW YORK PLANS LINKS
OPTIONS OX TWO TRACTS OK LAND
Holding Company lo Be Known As
Massapcqua Golf, lnc, With Capi
tal of $1,000,000.
NEW YORK, Feb. 5. (Special.) A
four-course golf links is the latest
scheme in New York. William C. Freo-
man, father of the idea, has been r
sponsible for obtaining an option on
two tracts of land at Massapequa, L. I
One tract is 357 acres, while the other.
separated from tho first by only tho
tracks of the Long Island Railroad,
contains 205 acres. It is within an
hour's ride of this city.
The holding company will be known
as the Maesapequa Golf. Inc., with a
capital of 41,000,000. consisting of 100,-
000 shares, all common stock, at si" a
share. The public will bo asked to sub
scribe $175,000 of this stock and in re
turn the holder will receive a coupon
book, entitling him to 50 per cent, of
his subscription in playing privileges
on the basis of 11 a day except on Satr
lirdavs Sundays and holidays, wnen
the charsre will be $2. This 50 per
cent playing privilege will be divided
over a period of five years.
The name Niblick, L. J.. has been sug
gested for the title of the special sta
tion for the golfers to get of at on,
the Long Island Railroad to reach tha
grounds. The Holding company con
trols the property with some liabili
ties, of course, but the public subscrip
tion of $475,000 will float tho enter
prise. Tne pudiic win own ir,s p-c
cent of the whole proposition and wilt
get back half of their money in play
ing privileges. They will still own
their stock, always worth par or more.
The Massapequa Country club will
lease the golf courses and will conduct
tournaments under its name, thus com
plying with the rules of the United
States Golf Association that golfers
cannot run a golf club to make money.
It is a member of the Metropolitan
Golf Association in good standing.

Preliminary plans call for the loca

This will necessitate the building of a
suspension bridge across the river and.
will mean a great boosting in tha
profits of some of the ball manufac
turers. The Tualatin' River is 40 or 50 yards
wide at this point and is flanked by
high and precipitous banks. It will
take a good 60-yard drive to clear the
river and beware the "topper."
