Lessons are taught on our practice range which offers full amenities. On the range, you will find a full grass driving range, a practice putting green, target greens, a pitching area, and practice bunkers.
Private group lessons may be set up or you could join one of several clinics arranged by the Southold Town Recreation Department. Private and group lessons are also available for junior players. Each summer, Island’s End holds a golf camp and a golf clinic for junior golfers. The camp consists of an hour per day instruction on the range, Monday-Thursday, and two hour lesson on the golf course on Friday. For eight consecutive Thursdays throughout the summer we hold a junior golf clinic that is held on the driving range.
Bill Fish – General Manager/Head Professional:
As a Long Island native I found myself in the golf world thanks mainly to my grandfather. He was the first person to take me to the driving range and eventually on to the golf course. I was born in Port Jefferson and attended grade school at Longwood High School. There I played many sports but ended up taking golf quite seriously. As the captain we won many league championships. I ended up playing collegiate golf while attending Hofstra University on a golf scholarship. As a junior golfer I worked the driving range at West Sayville Golf Club, and always had a passion to run a golf club.
I soon entered the golf business as a young adult at Marriott Wind Watch in Hauppauge. The club was then purchased by Hamlet as it is known today. In my eight years at Wind Watch I had many roles. My duties included merchandising, staff management, tournament operations, budgeting. Not to mention assisting John Jacobs and Nicklaus Flick golf schools, conducting several private lessons as well as large and small clinics.
Now in my tenth year at Islands End, I have found a unique opportunity to further promote the game of golf in several different capacities at an extremely beautiful golf course. Today my day includes, setting up member events, golf outings, merchandising and conducting private and group lessons and managing the entire operation.
There is a great feeling shared when a student of the game (seasoned or beginner) understands and feels the swing groove in the right direction. This can be achieved by communicating to the student as an individual in an attempt to tap into their abilities.
