Great pace, slow greens

Fantastic day on the Highlands course on a very hot day. Finished round in 3 1/2 hours. Greens were a little slow for my taste on this particular day, but I don't think that's always the case.

Cart service

Mid day round was pretty pricey for a Tuesday, cart service would’ve been nice during our round. We had to swing by the club house to hydrate. The course was in good shape.

Greens were perfect

Felt like they were rolling. Had enough zip on chips and pitches around the greens to check and stop. Best conditions I’ve played in this year around the a Houston area

Great views and landscape

The course is great, very challenging but still fun. You have some blind shots so hit them straight.

Wildcat never disappoints

Loved it!

Plenty of challenge without making me feel it's above my level of play. Great wind down sitting on the patio afterwards.

Always happy at Wildcat

We often play here because it’s so close to home. You can rarely get snagged in a slow pace of play crowd, it otherwise, this course is a sure-fire hit. We were surprised the course was in a good a condition as it was. Compares favorably with much more expensive and private clubs.

Sunday at the Masters pin placement on a Monday

Really enjoyed the Highlands course. I played with a fellow crew member that I tour with on the road. For winter conditions, the course was in great shape. Some of the pins were tucked or cut right at the top of a ridge or hill, which added strokes. A map of the greens is highly recommended for newcomers. Staying under the hole or on the correct side of the green is the difference between a par and a triple! The staff there are friendly and attentive. The practice green by the range didn't quite match the slickness of the greens on the Highlands course, but I bet that the one right by the first tee did. I will roll a few putts there instead next time. The practice mats had some give. They weren't hard as a rock. I always appreciate that when you're not allowed to hit off grass. The sand was consistent and fair. I will be back to knock some strokes off my score next week!
