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.

Well kept but not much else

Typical resort course with little character but an okay upkeep. Weaved in between homes and trees nearly every hole feels the same. Not much character to it

Well kept coarse

Went out with one other golfer they wanted me to pay 20.00 for a second cart. The other 2 players were able to get 2 carts. I thought with COVID 19 they had to separate. There were plenty of carts.

Great course

A little on the pricey side but very well maintained. Pace of play was great. Very challenging course. Felt like i was at the beach but spent a lot of time in the sand. A little confusing to navigate around to the next hole.

Refreshment cart staff not wearing a mask and discussed how her whole family had COVID. A group cut in front of us and there was no ranger keeping track of pace. This caused a bottle neck for the back 9.

Hard but well kept!

First of all. I sucked at golf today but that doesn’t reflect my review. The course was beautiful but difficult. Narrow fairways, some cool water features and a lot of bunkers. A little pricey but worth it
