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.

Wind Watch Golf

Had a good day on the course. As a single I was coupled with three very nice women that were friendly and accommodating, not to mention very good golfers. As usual I wish my day went a little better but the course was well maintained and fun to play. I was prepared to walk the course but that was not an option, carts only. I wasn't too disappointed as this course is spread out with some major hills. I'll be back, hopefully soon.

One of the nicer L.I. courses that’s open to the public.

One of the nicer courses on lLing Island that’s open to the public. Great views, challenging holes and long, but pace of play is usually excellent and although it’s more expensive, it’s certainly worth it.

Pleasant track with challenging holes

Great condition. Good value. The only complaint I have is the 18th hole. Very strange layout. A little bit too strenuous and dangerous to walk from cart, path down strep hill to reach the fairway.

Short of being in a private club, this is the next best thing.
Well maintained course, great staff and a real fine restaurant. It is great to be able to enjoy a wonderful club in these trying times.
