The U.S. open is going to be held at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club for the first time since 2004 and the June golf tournament is expected to bring an influx of people looking for scarce hotel rooms, short-term rentals and some seasonal renters. As of last week though, there were fewer than 100 hotel rooms on the South Fork left for the tournament, according to a report by tourism promotion agency Discover Long Island. Short-term rentals costing between $6,000 and $15,000 are up 15 percent, the report found. [27East]
