Rating 72.4
Type Resort/Semi-Private
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.

No food or beer available

Course is good design but our foursome was disappointed to find that the restaurant was closed so we couldn’t get any beer or food at the turn- we noticed a cart girl when we were teeing off at 3:40 and then never saw her once during our round. Disappointing- prob not coming back to play again

Tight Layout

If you spray the ball off the tee you will have issues. The fairways are not very wide but they are fair. The greens are beautiful but tricky depending on pin placement. Watch out on the downhill putts.
