Golf on Long Island’s North Fork: Island’s End in Greenport

As the name suggests, Island’s End Golf Course is at the far end of the North Fork, just a few miles from Orient Point and a five minute drive to the east from Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast, in one of the most beautiful spots on Long Island. You can golf here year round, except for Christmas Day and public players can book tee times 7 days in advance. The golf course and country club is semi private and includes a Pro Shop, driving range, practice putting green, sand trap and chipping areas. You can rent clubs, take private and group lessons, and refreshments are available at the restaurant and bar or beverage cart on weekends.
Island’s end has a great reputation for the quality of the course and its natural beauty. For a spectacular sunset view, plan on playing the 16th hole, which extends to the bluffs looking west over the Long Island Sound, towards the end of the day. If you play earlier, you can always be back at the Shorecrest in time to stroll across to our own beach and toast the sun as it dips behind the horizon with a glass of wine or a beer sitting in one of our Adirondack chairs. Ask for some crackers and cheese to take with you and we will be happy to oblige!
Island’s End is located on route 25 in Greenport, and like Shorecrest, a reasonable drive from any part of Long Island. But positioned as we both are, in the North Fork’s most rural and bucolic area, you feel that you have entered a different world from the largely urban or suburban landscape you will find on the rest of the island. Driving from New York City or the west, as you approach Riverhead, take exit 71 north, then turn right onto Sound Avenue. You will avoid traffic bottlenecks of the Tanger outlets and immediately enter farm country. A half hour drive past miles of wineries and farms, where almost every country road or lane will eventually take you to a secret beach or quiet harbor, will calm the mind and get you ready for your North Fork getaway.
Shorecrest is offering special packages for our golfing visitors. During April, add only $40 for each person golfing to the cost of your stay and we will include a pre-booked T time with golf cart and free club rentals should you need them (you can demo the latest from the golf shop!)
For more golf packages including massage and spa options for the non golfer, dinner packages, to go breakfasts and picnic lunches check out ‘specials and packages’ on the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast reservation and availability calendar, or call us with your special requests. We will be delighted to help make your stay a memorable one!

Greenport East End Lighthouse Tour

One of the delights of the summer season is to be able to take a cruise on the waters of Long Island and enjoy viewing the many lighthouses.  Our favorite lighthouse cruise is on board of the “Peconic Star II”.  The first East End Lighthouse tour of the season is scheduled to depart on Saturday, June 27th at 3:30 P.M.  Guests will enjoy a cruise on the waters of eastern Long Island and Gardiner’s Bay.  

During the cruise, you will learn about the maritime history of the area, including that of Plum Island and Gardiner’s Island.  For those history buffs, the cruise will be following the routes of American and British war ships in their 1812-1814 naval engagement.  Additionally, one may remember that Gardiner’s Island is where Captain Kidd buried his treasure.  Perhaps it may be discovered!  

Five lighthouses will be viewed along the way including Orient Point, Plum Island, Little Gull Island, Race Rock, and Long Beach Bar lighthouses.  The cruise includes dinner and Long Island wine.    Cost per person is $95.00 and space is limited.  What better way to enjoy a summer afternoon!
