Here's a map of OKW with building numbers and the golf holes which meander thru the resort, as you can see there are many buildings which could meet your criteria. The main thing would be to make sure you get an upper floor either 2nd or 3rd floors to maximize the views, ground floor rooms have a lot of foliage which would minimize views.
If I were looking to book something with a golf course view I would request building 63 or 64 and 2nd or 3rd floor, overlooking the 7th green. Buildings 16, 17 or 18 would be my second choices, overlooking the 6th green.

We were in a 1-bedroom second floor unit in building 47 last month and were right at bunker #4.

Just to go along with what skelooch said, we were in building 16 once, 1 BR, and had the best golf course view ever! DH especially loves golf, and thus golf course views, and for our next trip we've requested a 1 BR in either buildings 15, 16, 17, or 18. Those were our favorite golf course views. I admit we've never gotten building 47 though.

We were in 37, 2nd floor, no third floor, on the end by 36, golf course view, I'd sit mornings watching golfers go from one sand trap to the other...we request top floor, golf course view.
