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.

First Time at Wind Watch

I’ll be back!

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Wind Watch today. Yes, it was 37 degrees outside, yes the ground was so hard I struggled to get a tee into the ground, but the scenery was beautiful. The layout was fun and challenging. As with every course, it’s always to play from the fairway. This is particularly useful because there are several holes where water comes into play.

I used a cart and while they do offer a covered cart for $20 more. I had booked my tee time using GolfNow, Hot Deal, otherwise I may have played elsewhere. I’m glad I didn’t.

I did happens to shoot my best round of 2020-2021 today, but that is now the reason for the sparkling review.

Fairways were a little hard and browning, but it’s to be expected in the winter on Long Island.

The greens were actually impeccable! Fast and true. Some difficult reads but I mostly 2 putted them.

The cart was powerful and handled the terrain easily!

I started out alone, behind a twosome and another single caught up to me on the 9th and played the remaining holes. Nice guy that played at the same pace as me. He was familiar with the course so he provided some layout into.

I don’t have my reading glasses on so I’ll apologize now about any typos or autocorrects gone wrong.

Like I said, I’ll be back!

Quality golf course, challenging greens

Played once in the summer and now once in the winter. Well kept course with a few very interesting holes, especially the ones with water hazard and a few beautiful holes with elevated tee boxes. Cart mandatory, and necessary due to slightly strange course layout where there is significant distance between holes 3-4 times in a round. Not a long course, but intelligently placed bunkers that make you think very strategically. Fun round, BEAUTIFUL in the summer, but still looks good in winter. Will be back!
