Long Island National Golf Club Riverhead
Designed by legendary fairway-carver Robert Trent Jones Jr., Long Island National Golf Club Riverhead's 18-hole course layout runs along 6,838 yards of rolling terrain wreathed by farmland and vineyards. Throughout the round, each hole plots a path through a sea of knee-high fescue grass that sways in the wind atop fairway side mounds, channeling the look of golf's seminal Scottish courses. Water comes into play on four holes, promising a grim fate for wayward balls that don't speak catfish. Rated the course's hardest hole, the par 5 18th offers a dramatic end to the round, as clubbers must blast the ball 590 yards over a treacherously narrow fairway to reach the green. Alongside the grassy monolith, soaring drives lift off from a gallery of hitting stalls at the driving range, where players can smooth out herky-jerky swings and make clubs do calisthenics in preparation for their round.
Those looking to upgrade their golf garbs or replace a club damaged in a street fight with a gang of croquet mallets can head to the pro shop, which peddles apparel and equipment from top brands including Titleist, FootJoy, and Adidas. Post-round hunger meets its match at Bogey's Grill, which serves up savory grill fare and icy drinks to weary linksmen.
