Great course for the value

This course is a gem to play under windy conditions. Proper club selection and low shots critical for scoring. Thoroughly enjoy playing this course at all time and recommended

Highlands course

It’s a fun course to play and challenging. The greens were recently aerated but still rolled fine. The maintenance staff have been doing a lot of work cutting back brush and making the course more player friendly. The fairways and tees are beginning to green up. If you are visiting Houston, this is definitely a course worth playing.

Wonderful track

Funny how some feel they have to give Wildcat substandard reviews. The course was in very good winter shape considering all the rain that has fallen. The fairways were very good, except for the locations where people drove their carts where they weren't suppose to. The greens were running true and smooth, except where people refuse to fix their ball marks. Wildcat gives you a true test for your game on either course. If you love the game, you will love Wildcat. If you don't play well, it can bite you anywhere. So if you love golf, you will love Wildcat.

Great layout, great-ish staff

I may lean slightly to the lakes course but don't sleep on the highlands - linksier style sibling! Great elevation changes in the layout!

Great course

Great course, hole 17 flag on fairway so I’m assuming they are working on greens on hole 17.

Scorecards are not placed on carts. I would expect this from Wildcat Golf Club.

Blind Shots

It was my 1st time playing the course. Showed up 40 minutes early before my tee time to get warmed up at the range to find out the ball machine ran out off range balls. Having course knowledge on this course is a MUST because the course has a lot of big hills EVERYWHERE! The pace of play was held up due to all the blinds shots on almost every hole. There were a lot of blind shots hit throughout the day. The greens were a little bare, but it looks like they were recovering from the Texas freeze. Hole 17’s green was under repair, so the 17th green was basically a field with a hole it it.
