Great Course but Slow

I'm a big fan of both Wildcat courses. We played Highlands today and it was smooth sailing for the first four or five holes. Then we hit a wall and it only got worse the more we played. There were three groups on the tee on the par 3 8th and no marshal in sight. It was around the holidays so I understand people are off of work and the course is crowded. But this seemed excessive, especially with tee times ten minutes apart. After 9 the group in front of us went back and played the front again. Probably the right move. It sped things up briefly but we were back to waiting by hole 11. Aside from that, it's a good challenging course that was in very good winter condition.

Windy Day of Golf

I don't play many premium or members only courses, so there may be limited value in my evaluation here. Who needs Austin terrains when you can play here? The course is well maintained and a good challenge. A cold front was pushing down and it was super windy and chilly, which impacted my play a lot. One of the bright spots was my par on 17. I came on close with a 5 metal wood.

Slow pace but great course

This course has some good challenges for all levels but unfortunately our round took 5 hours and 20 minutes. It didn't take that long because the course was busy, it took that long because we had a lady in front of us that was a first time player and took a minimum of 12 strokes per hole and was looking for her ball every other stroke. We were disappointed that no employee politely told her to put a limit on her strokes due to her slowing down the entire course. When you have 3 different tee times all waiting at the same tee box because of a slow group, thats when the golf course staff should step in and do something

Not all it’s cracked up to be?

I was a little underwhelmed by this course. With such good reviews overall, frankly I expected a little more. The course itself was playable for the most part and in good nick. My main concern centered around several holes having blind shots off the tee and unexpected issues for reasonably long and straight drives i.e. run out of fairway. The other problem for me was that frankly the course is pretty ugly! It has a general feel similar to some of the Scottish Links Courses which some folks like. Think open, exposed areas, etc. around the edges of the holes however, there were some fairly gnarly areas. Overall, not for me I’m afraid.

Excellent as always

We played the day before Thanksgiving, when I expected most courses to be booked solid. Pace was great and course was in excellent shape, especially given the time of year. I could play here every day and be happy.

Good course conditions / slow pace of play / no cart girl

Pros:
- good course conditions
- good course layout

Cons:
- bad pace of play
- no cart girl (didn’t get a single drink the entire round)

I breezed through the front 9 but was jammed up on the back 9. I left early it was so bad.

MANAGEMENT: There were no marshals to be seen on the back 9 and it was evident they didn’t know how to do their job - they were all huddled together just talking when I did see them on the front 9.
