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.

Lot of water

The course was in ok conditions for this time of year 3/3/2020. The geeens fee was reasonable $47, it is usually a lot more, because this a course next to a major hotel. Overall everything was good except I played poorly.

Listen, when you can play golf in January on Long Island it’s never gonna be bad, but WW was great. Well worth the little bit of a drive, course was in great shape (little bit of goose poop) and pace of play was quick.

Winter Golf

When you have a nice weather window to golf, take advantage! The course was a little chopped up but this is to be expected during the winter months. The pace of play was fantastic, finished at 3hrs.

Bad layout

You will see you have to spend too much time find out where is next hole?! The layout of some holes look like the same. It made me bored soon. Overall, I don’t like the course. Don’t want to come back.
