Rating 72.4
Type Resort/Semi-Private
Although it is located in Hauppauge on Long Island's North Shore, Wind Watch Golf Club possesses the look and feel of a destination course. Sprawling across a lush, rolling landscape covered with sparkling ponds, the course is as challenging as it is scenic. Water hazards come into play on 12 holes and there are more than 75 bunkers, some of which are massive in size, strategically placed throughout. Almost every hole presents golfers with a unique risk-reward opportunity. The golf course begins and ends at its highest point, which is one of the island's highest elevations. Wind Watch's closing hole provides a memorable finish as the only dogleg on the course. This par 4 takes a sharp left before climbing uphill to the triple-tiered green that is protected by three enormous traps.

Very Nice Course

I've played this course before and always enjoy it. The course on this day was in very nice condition considering that there was some soft areas by the rain the day before. The greens rolled nice and true. Played #16 along 3 deer feeding under the trees along the fairway. If you haven't tried this course,I recommend you do,

No food or beer available

Course is good design but our foursome was disappointed to find that the restaurant was closed so we couldn’t get any beer or food at the turn- we noticed a cart girl when we were teeing off at 3:40 and then never saw her once during our round. Disappointing- prob not coming back to play again

Tight Layout

If you spray the ball off the tee you will have issues. The fairways are not very wide but they are fair. The greens are beautiful but tricky depending on pin placement. Watch out on the downhill putts.

Rangers needed

Front nine played in two hours and fifteen minutes very respectable

Back nine played two holes then the entire back nine was at a stand still and went home

Course must get rangers out on course

Challenging course, tight on some holes. With the exception of having to dodge the odd goose droppings the course in great condition. Staff is friendly.

Wind watch

Excellent layout, fast greens, traps had alot of stones, no starter - before we played they sent out a twosome and a single, we were a twosome and joined single, no ranger - but played twilight. Backup on 10, so went back and replayed front, probably would have been more annoyed if I did not pay twilight Rates. Other than rockey traps and pace of play, it is a great layout and challenge

Hidden Gem

This course is on the grounds of a Hilton property, which may explain why I haven’t great of it before. I live in Queens, NY and play in Nassau and Suffolk frequently. This course is a hidden gem. I played on a Friday before Memorial Day with a tee time if 730am. Started on time and was walking to my car by 11am. There are lots of sand traps, water and a few narrow fairways. Strategy is the game here. The greens were excellent and played true so it allows one to feel like you can score well.

This is a hidden gem out in suffilk county but I highly recommend it.

Very Slow

Ironically, the carts display a sign encouraging everyone to play at a four hour pace. Round took just about 5 hours! No rangers on the course that I could see. Otherwise, other than the first and last holes, a very nice place to play. Lots of stuff on the greens from the trees so at this time of year it would help to have staff blow off the greens.
