Wet Day at Course

Course was is fairly good shop despite all of the recent weather issues but some maintenance is needed along with ant remediation will be needed. WE enjoyed the course through 16 holes before the heavy rain and winds came.
Overall a good outing.

I invited some out of town guest to join me and they are still talking about the experience 3 days later.

The course is in excellent shape, the staff is the best in Houston and the owners are the best. Always enjoy Wildcat

Worst Booking Policies Ever

Love the course but all tee times are prepay. Unfortunately, we had a player who could not make it. Too bad, you prepaid and are now paying for them. Great course but they charge you top rates to play and have restrictive tee time policies.

Must-play Course

Unique and interesting course. Good elevation, undulating greens, lot of water and hazards make it a must-play course in Houston.

Enjoyed my new friends

Staff wasn’t sensitive to first time at the course golfers. I asked about practice balls and bought a code for a medium bucket. Got up to range and machine wasn’t working because out of balls. The next 12 golfers tried the same thing. Someone finally came and said it was out of balls and would be awhile before it was refilled. No info offered by pro shop about putting green, cart path rules in place, food, drink, ice, restrooms, etc.

Slow greens, hot and muggy

The course is recovering from aerating the greens, and the greens in general were very slow, maybe 6 on a stimpmeter. And generally the course is very open, so other than water there really are no hazards to deal with. However, every course I have played this year has the same green conditions so there isn't much that can be done about that.

Best staff, grass, and class around

I’m new to the Houston area so I’ve only hit a few links around town but I can assure you wild cat is a excellent course. My group and I caught the late tee time to try and avoid as much heat as we could, ended up being out there till the horn went off. Great course, for a town that had a unreal ice storm damage wildcat seemed to stay on top of it. Played the lakes, and it might be my favorite course at wildcat. Staff is always so darn nice, overall great place to catch 18 with your buddies.
