Solid

My brother and I bounce around to the public courses here for variety. We want good conditions and a fair price . Wildcat is an upper end public option in Houston and delivers a good value and 2 quality courses, both very different from each other. Highlands is overall in very good condition other than the 17 and 18 greens which are recovering from freeze damage as many greens are in Houston. It was an enjoyable round on a hot saturday afternoon here.

Striking Oil at Wildcat!

Usually, when I play a course for the first time, I don't fo so well. Yesterday at Wildcat was the exception. It was partly due to choosing a reasonable tee-I chose the 6100 yard Blue Tees and played the Highlands Course. This course has a very challenging layout. If you are playing it for the first it probably be good to play with someone who knows the course. Wildcat was in pretty good shape although most greens had burned-out portions. The choice of 5 tee boxes offers a variety of skill levels the chance to do well. I played the course alone and several times had difficulty locating the next hole or the direction of the hole because several tee areas are located near one another. In addition, more signs indicating the direction to the next hole are needed. However it was a good day to play and "strike oil" at Wildcat.

Great Course

I have to say, being a native Houstonian I have heard great things about WildCat. The course lived up to its name. It is wild and very sneaky as a cat.

Lets be brutal here I suck as a golfer, my buddy Mike is a bit better but lets face it he sucks too! The real entertaining part was hole 13 on the lakes course when mysteriously my 60 degree wedge ended up in on the lakes.... Needless to say it is a fantastic course and i will be back. Aside from me sucking the bar/grill is fantastic. I look forward to playing another round of golf with Wild Cat. Great course!

Great track

This is a great loop with lots of elevation change for Houston. Have to be able to hit the landing areas or will add lots of strokes.
Will play the second round a bit different know that I know the course better.
Very minor issues remain from freeze but they are working on it. Only have 2 greens under repair, and they are actively repairing.
Would definitely come back to play again.

Fun had by all

We had a good time at this course and will definitely return. The value for the money spent was very good.
My son in laws needed rental clubs and the quality of their rentals was as good as their own clubs.
While recent rain storms had drenched area courses, the Wildcat Highlands was in very good condition.
We were glad that we chose to play here today.

Rough Greens

I know almost every course in the Houston area had suffered some damage from our deep freeze earlier this year. I completely understand and Wildcat seems to be working hard on getting their greens back to the quality I have seen them in the past. Just made it a little more challenging then usual.

Punched Greens

Not worth the money when you end up playing on punched greens and one green was turned into a temporary green for $72 green fee at 2:30. $90 before 2:00. 18th green was in horrible shape.

Best front nine of my life!

The course is in pretty good shape, a few of the greens have freeze damage. I played the front nine well and I should have stopped there. The back nine put me in my place. It’s golf! Just go enjoy the round.

Some rough spots

Still mending from the freeze so understandable. I’ve always felt Wildcat could stand to let the fairway turf grow a little longer to allow the Bermuda grass to fill out a bit more.

The freeze hit the greens

Putting is difficult when the greens are damaged from the freeze. Slow speeds of putting due to long grass to grow in the greens, otherwise fair conditions.
