North Fork Gem

Played Island's End today for the first time and was glad I did. I got there super early because I did not know what traffic would be like coming from Riverhead. The starter got me right out and was super friendly. The course has an interesting layout as it has five par 3s and five par 5s. Hit the ball in the right area and many of these par 5's are reachable in two. The course is still short from the tips, but where it makes up for it is the par 3s are decently long. All but one were playing 180+ today. My favorite hole is the par 3 16th which played 205 downhill with a view of the sound on your right. The course was in great shape even though the greens had recently been punched. They were still soft and rolled true. I'd like to see the price of $70 come down to be honest and to add on, the golf carts were kinda dingy and the floors were falling apart. That, however, is just a minor part. Overall great and fun course.

Greens are sweet

Golf course was in great shape, staff was terrific. The greens were rolling great. Some real tough par threes along with some reachable par fives for a great balance. 16th Hole! What a view.

Much Improved Course

I have played this course before in the past and the conditions were normally a little run down, but they have improved this course greatly. They had recently aerated but the greens were starting to roll nicely. My only complaint is about the pace of play, I went out as a single and either no one was willing to let me play through or the people behind me were unwilling to join up, I spent almost 10 min on every tee box and in the fairways waiting for the greens to clear, I quit after a 2 1/2 hr front 9 because I couldn't put up with the wait any longer. The course is beautiful though and I will definitely return.

Special way to spend my birthday

Love taking the ferries across from the south fork to play Islands End. The Greenport area is a special place to visit, especially after Labor Day without the crowds. Low key golf course with grass driving range, putting green and sand trap to practice and warm up on. Greens had been aerated when we played so that made putting more of an adventure than it usually is, but all in all a great place to play for golfers of all skill levels.

This course can be challenging but......

The course was challenging with interesting pin placements. The Tee boxes were in poor shape and several traps had large puddles in them. Overall we had a nice game. Please work on course conditions.

Nice starter

As a lone female player, I was fairly certain I would be paired with men, and was concerned that they wouldn't be happy having a woman join them. The starter was so helpful and reassuring. My playing companions were gracious, especially so since the starter had let them know of my trepidations. So along with a fine course, easy check -in, and great weather, this made for a five-star experience. View of the sound from hole 16 is spectacular.

Gem of the North Fork

Great course in excellent shape. Only downside was there was no beverage cart and it was a very warm day outside. Fantastic view of the sound from their signature hole

Cut the Greens

Course is a very nice layout with challenges at almost every hole. . Fairways, bunkers, tees in very good shape. The Greens unfortunately were much to slow. They were either not cut or they are kept to long. Made judging speed almost impossible. I would go back if assured the greens were in better condition..

So Boring

This is my first review, and I feel terrible writing it because the staff was so nice, but i had been looking at this course for months and finally went. I have never been so bored in my entire life, and quit after I fell asleep on the 8th hole in my cart. To be fair - this is a fine course for seniors. But there is 0 water and the course is completely flat. I would never come back. I actually drove to cherry creek and had a great afternoon on the woods course for a cheaper price than this course.

One of my Favorites

I always play here at least once a year with my club-40 members, but it is always such a great experience, that it makes me want to come back 1 or 2 times more over the season. Did that yesterday and as always it was perfect. Staff and course were superb. Greens were a little slow but consistent once you get the speed down and edges of most cups were slightly damaged but all in all it was a great day and if the course was closer to my home -some 70mi. away-I would play at least 2-3X's a month. We saw a deer and fawn dash across the 7and 8th fairway and wild turkeys @5th green.

Bad day from Golf Now.

Had a 1:03 tee time at Island's End booked on Golf Now on 6/23/14 in the am. Arrived at course only to find out that they had an 18 hole shotgun planned (months in advance) and I could not play. After a 95 mile round trip I called Golf Now, who apologized and said they would credit my cc. Ruined my whole day!

Always a pleasure.

Got a great deal on golfnow.com for a weekend round. Staff was forthcoming about the temporary green on #8 ( a problem area for a few years). New owners seem to be trying to get it right. A fun track all around with a good mix of holes and quick greens that will speed up as the weather settles down and they can get nice and firm. 16 is the hole that this course is built around. Spectacular Par 3 on a bluff overlooking the sound. Swirling winds make club selection a key decision with NO room to bail right. I always make a point to play here when out east because of the course and the people. Pace is good without feeling rushed as well.
