A new scandal is brewing at a Long Island country club where an ex-bartender claimed he was ordered to refill top-shelf liquor bottles with the cheap stuff.

The claim was the latest to roil the Tam O’Shanter Country Club in Brookville, N.Y., where other employees recently said members were sometimes accompanied on the course by prostitutes and bikini-clad strippers.

“The premium bottles would be used over and over, to the point the writing would be worn off the labels,” former employee Justin Williams wrote in a complaint the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. “I didn’t realize what was going on until the end of my first year.”

The New York Post said the alleged shell game irked the membership more than the tales about the ladies of the links. “Hookers and strippers don’t really surprise me, but I’m furious to hear they’ve been serving me cheap booze,” one incensed member told the newspaper.

Not everyone was ready to revolt, however. Another member doubted the veracity of Williams’ claim. “I know my Grey Goose,” he said.
