Welcome to the Premier Beach Club on the South Shore of Long Island

About Us

History of Green Harbour Beach Club

 "GHBC" opened its doors in 1958. Generations of  families have made the Green Harbour Beach Club their home for the summer. We maintain over 2 acres of beachfront property in Massapequa, Long Island. Located on the Great South Bay, there are a multitude of activities to enjoy. Our beach club showcases one of the best sunsets on the South Shore.​ 


We are a private member only club. However what makes us unique on Long Island, is that the Green Harbour Beach Club is open to all residents with no-residency/neighborhood restrictions.  

Why Join GHBC?

Every season has its special beauty. Summer is a time to enjoy the sun, relax and spend time with family and friends. There is no better place to do this than the Green Harbour Beach Club.

PARTIES

Parties:

Personal, Family or Guest parties are not allowed at GHBC on the patio, kitchen or any where else in the club. The only exception to this rule is pre-approved Children's parties for which the rules are located below.


Reserved Children's Parties: 

Parties for children 15 and under are allowed in season Monday - Friday from 11:30 am - 4:30 pm only for up to 15 children maximum. (not including the boy/girl member). The area by the club house under the overhang and the two picnic tables from the club house are only to be used. The cost is $200 for 2 hours or $350 for 4 hours. The date must be requested to the board and reserved in advance. All food, decor, favors, cake etc. are to be supplied by the member. There is to be no music or entertainment (clowns etc.) There is no parking in the lot for any guests. Parents of the guest children are welcome to stay during the party. The rule for only allowing parties to take place under the awning at GHBC was implemented so as not to take patio space away from members and to allow the party family privacy to enjoy their event. It also prevents members from feeling excluded from the party.
