Cape and Islands Golf Shop is the latest incarnation of a golf-accessory store that has served the Hyannis area for more than 20 years. Kevin Cullivan recently reopened the shop under its current name, combining his two decades of golf expertise with the knowledge and skills of industry veterans Keith Rose and Brendan Army. The trio's more than 50 years of combined experience allows them to ensure each customer gets the right equipment for his or her needs. They also welcome representatives from top golf-gear brands for club-fitting events, which take into account a golfer's height, favored hand, and the number of languages in which he or she can yell, "Fore!"
Mahoney's Garden Center beckons green-thumbs and novices alike to its sprawling facilities, which burst with a plethora of plants, blooms, and gardening accoutrements. Although merchandise varies by store, shoppers may score finds such as a knock-out rose shrub ($29.98), zinnia perennials ($4.98) or an 8-inch hanging ivy ($16.98), complete with a Rhodes Scholar application. The 6-inch hibiscus ($12.98) lends its vibrantly hued blooms to front porches or a modest giant's windowsill. Perch deserving bouquets in the 12-inch embossed teal ceramic planter ($44.99) or display 10- and 11-inch hanging baskets ($12.50) that double as hideaways for spare doghouse keys. Customers can also narrow their searches for outdoor patio furniture at the Winchester and Falmouth locations.
Armed with only a putter, players on Cape Escape's miniature golf course traverse 18 holes littered with nautical obstacles. Contestants must tune out a host of distractions as they concentrate on putts at hand, including crashing waterfalls, narrow bridges over a live koi fish pond, and the constant fear that the shipwrecked fishing boat might actually be a sleeping Transformer.
