Par 72
Length 6686 yards
Slope 136
Rating 72.4

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.

16 good holes and 2 horrible holes

Really like most of the holes on this course. I usually play it as twilight because it can get a bit pricey. The short par 3 8th hole over water is really nice and I like the 9th and 17th holes. The design is really nice and usually the course is in great shape.

The 1st and 18th holes are two of the worst designed holes ever. The first hole has it’s white tee box all the way over to the left which is almost directly into the trees. Unless you play a hook you will not find the fairway with the driver. I don’t understand why they just don’t use the same tee box they use for the tips? That one is a straight shot. The 18th hole is worse. It’s a short par 4 steeply up the hill with a boomerang dogleg left. They should just honestly make it a par 3 and be done with it. Lastly, the course is usually pristine, but today there’s were dozens of not more cigarette butts all over the course.

Great Day Out

Great day out on a beautiful course. Even after heavy rain the day before, course was in nice shape with the exception of a couple big puddles on two fairways. Course is challenging as it isn’t quite narrow at times. Some nice vistas from a few elevated tee boxes.

Really nice layout, can be tight on some holes and you’ll figure out why they call it wind watch because the wind was crazy today.

Good Winter Time Round

Played an enjoyable round in pre season conditions. Course was very playable & in suitable condition given the early season time. Pace of play was good. Fairways, greens & bunkers were okay.

Price that included a cart was reasonable. Driving range & putting green we’re closed.

Will return as enjoyed the day.

Don’t ride

Well this course is a lot of distance between each hole including a lot of major hills. Our cart died on hole 16 and I had to push it back because no one would answer at the club house. Skipped the last 3 holes when informing the gentleman at the cart/pro shop he could careless
