Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton hosted the 68th U.S. Women’s Golf Open this past weekend, which ended Sunday with Inbee Park hoisting her second Open trophy. Park, 24, won her first Open in 2008 while just 19.

Park shot an 8-under-par 280 to win the tournament by four strokes over I.K. Kim. The top three finishers were all from Korea.

Sebonack was the first Long Island golf course to host a women’s Open.

The nearby location of one of the top golf tournaments brought out plenty of fans from the North Fork, some of whom were watching a big-time golf for the first time.

Times/Review golf columnist Jay Dempsey caught up with some of the locals at Sebonack to get their take on the tournament and the golf course:

“I love seeing the women play. The course is fantastic.” — Jan Rose of Orient.

“I wanted to see the women swing. Maybe I can learn something.” — Don Rose of Orient.

“This is my first time at at tournament. Maybe it will revive my interest in golf.” — Cathy Gallagher of Southold.

“I’ve never been to an event like this. I wanted to see the course and it’s dynamite.”  — Chris Gallagher of Southold.

“I’m not a golfer, but I wanted to see the course. It’s beautiful. I’m here to enjoy the walk and the day.” — Terry Connell of Southold.

“I’ve been told that to improve my golf game, I should swing more like the women. So I came over to watch the ladies swing.” — Allan Connell of Southold.

“I wanted to see Morgan Pressel because my middle name is Morgan.”  — Andrew McKenzie, 6, of Laurel.
