Manhattan's only golf course will re-open for a celebrity tournament this fall.
The nine-hole course on Governor’s Island will be used for the Manhattan Golf Classic.
Tees and pins will be rearranged after nine holes to play a second nine.
In addition to the celebrities, there will be a Skins Game competition featuring eight-time LPGA Player of the Year Annika Sorenstam, as well as one of the top U.S. players in the world, Natalie Gulbis.
Organizers of the event will pay $75,000 to rent the island for the four-day tournament, which tees off October 22nd.
