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.

Good course but it was just aerated . I paid $90, and the course directly would have been $85 , they were giving an aeration discount.

Good course

One of my favorite courses on the island, but C’mon!!! Had an 11am twosome. The starter wouldnt let us off early, had to wait around at the putting green. Finally puts us on the tee and sticks us with a husband and wife with an 11:30 tee time!!!! By far the two slowest players ive ever played with!!! I think their last name was Dechambeau! How come they got to go off early?!? The round was painful. I had to apologize to the group behind us several times.

Tough course with Tough conditions

Just like my title, the course layout is good but the facilities on the course are extremely poor. On a hot day with the temperatures soaring to 90 deg F there is not a single water cooler on any of the tee box. Even Bethpage a public course has that and Wind watch green fee is higher then Bethpage but no facilities at all. We cant's even order food before hand from the 8th hole.
