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.

Windy day and falling leaves

First few holes good condition for playing. All of sudden wind and breezy air made me awful performance to play game. Even though they were working on blowing out leaves too many falling leaves bothered to look for a ball.
Above 50 degrees of weather would be playable but bottom of it stay home unless you’re crazy about golf game.

A Good Fall Round.

This is a really nice golf course. Varied holes make the course a fun play. Challenging holes are mixed in with player friendly holes. Plays through some houses. For a late fall round the conditions were good. Greens were top dressed so they were not fast. The only other issue we’re leaves in some fairways that could have blown to the edges. Play moved at a good clip

Conditions are GREAT

Windwatch is always in Pristine condition. Greens are fast but true. Had frost delay today, can’t control the weather. They did there best to accommodate everyone. Cart girl out to us by the 4th hole. It’s nice to see, a lot of courses don’t put them out early. My foursome had a great day

A true challenge

You have to bring your A game to this course, as it has many challenges and will test all your golf shots. Narrow fairways and fast, sloping greens make it pretty tough to score well. Water hazards exist on most holes as well. Course is in tip top shape and is well maintained, one of the best public courses I have played on Long Island. I was just disappointed the halfway house was closed and no food available at the turn. But it is off season.

Had a few too many leaves on the course but that is hard to control with the trees and wind.
