I’ve been kicked off golf courses numerous times, trying to run their bucolic paths. So here’s an opportunity for a legit run around a golf course. The well-known 27-hole Hamptons Golf Course is a public course, that actually has a nearly 4-mile paved trail around its perimeter. It’s very popular with runners, cyclists, rollerbladers, and the like. Part wooded, part open with nice views of the course.

Access is from the Hampton Aquatic & Youth Center. It’s well signed.
