THE TRUE STORY behind Bethpage Black’s famous sign.

Posted

Mike Asheroff was the deputy regional director for the Long Island State Parks when the sign was first created, and he customarily spent holidays and weekends visiting with park superintendents believing “if they were working they ought to see the boss is working,” Asheroff said.

"The sign originated on Memorial Day, either in 1981 or ’82, maybe even 1980". Asheroff said he was sitting having coffee with Eric Siebert, who was the park's superintendent at the time when Siebert’s two-way radio alerted them of an altercation on the golf course.

“We went out there and some guy had decided he was going to teach his wife to play golf on Memorial Day on the Black Course,” Asheroff told The Post in a telephone interview. “There were four or five empty holes in front of them and a foursome of very angry Asian golfers behind them. They were getting upset with the man and the woman and their English wasn’t good. To hurry them up, they hit several balls into him and his wife. He turned around and hit the balls back at them. They all became extremely angry.

“The park police showed up. We managed to get this guy off the golf course. His wife was mortified. We refunded his green fee and told him to go away.”

Here’s where the legend of the Black Warning Sign is born.

“I turned to Eric at that point and said, ‘Give me a piece of paper,’ and I scribbled out the wording of the sign and said, ‘Get the sign shop to make this up and put it by the park register and if anybody wants to play golf on the Black, point it out to them.’ That’s how the sign got out there,” Asheroff recalled.
