RECREATION & SPORTS TAUK DOWNS 631-668-5000 has always been re- garded as one of the best public courses in the coun- try. Complete with pro shop, putting green, driving range, locker rooms and snack bar, a round of golf is a reasonable $43 weekdays, $48 Saturday and Sunday for NYS residents, double that for non-residents. To avoid the sometimes long lines you can reserve your tee-time a week in advance by registering with their reservation service - 631-668-1234. If you are into small ball, multiple holes-in-one and a game the whole family can enjoy try PUFF N PUTT 631-668-4473. You will find this classic mini-golf course at the west end of Montauk’s Main Street next to 7-11   HIKING AND BIKING Over the past 20 years the Towns of the East End have spent literally tens of millions of dollars preserv- ing and protecting vast stretches of forest and park- land. Much of the reason for doing that is to offer you the chance to explore these verdant stretches on foot or bike. Best of all, it is free, baby!! If you are looking for the greatest concentration of off-road trails you’d best keep that pedal to the metal and move all the way out east. Montauk’s Hither Woods offers 3,000 acres of State and County park land interlaced with miles of hiking and biking trails. It is a natural resource to be enjoyed by novices and experts alike. If you need to find your way head di- rectly to the MONTAUK BIKE SHOP 631-668-8975 on Main Street next to John’s Pancake House. Not only do they have a rack of state-of-the-art trail guides they offer on and off-road bikes for daily rent or sale plus all the accessories you’ll need to enjoy a day’s cruising. Bent your bike? No problem, they fix every make and model on-site. Just to the west you can do the same at the AMAGANSETT BEACH AND BIKE 631-267-6325. They offer quality Cannondale trail bikes for rent by the hour, day or week plus all the accessories you’ll need to ride safely off-road. Looking to organize a gro up tour? They can outfit and guide you by the dozens!   ONE WITH NATURE Over the years the PECONIC LAND TRUST has helped preserve thousands of acres of fields, woods and farms.
