Nice course

We played the lakes side of the course. Everything was well kept. The greens were smooth and not too hard or soft. I really have no complaints about the conditions. The only “bad” thing is that the layout is a little confusing for your first time. Specifically the first 4 holes. The signs giving directions weren’t too clear. Briefly saw the pro shop and grill so I can’t say what it really has to offer. They did appear to have a locker room.

Dazed and Confused

It had been three years since I played the Lakes at Wildcat. Yet I did remember where the first tee had been moved…next to the water in back of the club house. The trouble was my golf watch still used the back nine as the front nine. It was blind man’s bluff until I figured it out by the third hole. The next bit of confusion, playing the white tees, was how some par 4 holes were at par five length while other par fives played like par fours. I don’t normally make three birdies. I was up to the challenge and bogeyed the monster par 4s. My game has improved in three years, getting an 81 after seeing 93 there that last time.

Solid course

Great course. Challenging layout especially if you are not familiar with holes given blind shots. Couple green issues here and there but greens roll true.

Lakes Reverse Hole Changes

I like the reverse hole changes on the Lakes course. Glad I played it today and became familiar with the new changes and will now be familiar when playing the Dan Ewing Memorial Tournament in a few weeks.

Must Play at least Once

Love the views and elevation. Great view of Reliant stadium, Astrodome and downtown. Greens are undulating.

This course takes a few times playing to know where ti hit it.
Points of contact were all positive and happy.

I have played here many times and it is really different from your average Houston course.

Played the Lakes yesterday. A few of the greens had some scrunge on them, but overall in decent shape.

First time on the course. Layout is one that you better play with trustworthy experience partners or prepare to struggle. Find that this course has way too many blind, trick shots. If wind is howling, it really is frustrating.
Want to play it again, but waiting for winds to settle down if they ever do.

Wet and windy

Had rainy and windy conditions which is not unusual.
Winter conditions with wet and tight fairways. Greens were good except some repair work-doesn’t affect your putting.
Tee off during light rain so nobody else’ was on tee box.
Like Highland better, fewer force carries and way least water.
Still enjoyable round.

Fun Course, Great Condition

Really fun course layout with a lot of elevation changes. The white tees are very short, so if you usually play white tees, consider playing from the blues. Really friendly staff, and excellent pace of play (albeit the weather was in the 40’s).

Always a good play

Very good course layout with fun Tee Shots. Greens were good but a little faster than I remembered. Pins were somewhat unfair for most players this day as their were multiple pins in very hard locations close to the edge and you had to approach wisely. This made birdies very hard to get on this day. #17 was 7' off the back edge. Wind was not bad, but greens were drying out and flying down grain down hill.
