About North Fork CC
We consider our 18-hole playground the ultimate sanctuary.
The legendary Donald Ross designed North Fork to take full advantage of its natural setting—with four holes fully embracing the waterfront and the balance offering exquisite views of Peconic Bay, this is easily one of the most compelling combinations of golf and sea ever created by this master.
Walkable fairways flow gracefully through a lush landscape, with bunkers shaping drives and approach shots that lead to smallish manicured greens. While it’s not uncommon for first-timers to give up a few “distraction” strokes to our stunning scenery, this green jewel—Long Island’s only Donald Ross-designed course—is a fully modern golf experience.
