For more than a century, the East End of Long Island has been an A-list destination for golfers. Those with connections seek out private clubs such as Shinnecock Hills and National Golf Links of America, which are part of the seminal history of the game in the United States. But if you don’t have an “in” with a member, there are publicly accessible courses that can satisfy your desire for the game while providing a day of exhilaration (or is that exacerbation?) in the refreshing, salty air of the East End. Use Wine Spectator's expert guide to plan your next outing.
