Mary Palmieri Gai

My son Andrew Gai holds the golf course record at Longshore with a 59 which he set in August of 2012. when he was 19 years old. He’s currently on a pro tour in the south. We know he’s one of the best golfers anywhere and I can’t wait until the world knows it too.

Longshore is one of the main reasons Westport is so special. With its purchase by the town in 1960, for under 2 million, Westport has set itself apart from other towns with a public 167 acre country club located on Long Island Sound with Beach front, a sailing school, swimming pools, tennis courts and an 18 hole golf course. Enjoy my research.. I think you’ll get a kick out of it.

Frank Fellowes owned much of the property along Westport’s Coastline  the property until his death in 1900 when his widow sold the property to Frederic Lewis. Patrick Powers, wealthy entrepreneur bought the property in the early 20s. Powers was a powerhouse. He backed Walt Disney at one time and was the founder of Universal pictures. Here’s a little tidbit from 1938 which caused an uproar. These three articles found in 1938, chronical a time when the landscape of Westport could have been shaped very differently than it is today.
