Wildcat is wild

Ball placement is key off the tee and most definitely on the green! Course is not long,but the greens are it's defense, fast and undulating greens. Great place to play

Wait for Fairways to Come Back

Have played here before and all was good then but not now. Almost all fairways totally gone/being redone. They definitely should have alerted us to that when booking. Poor communication on that front. Greens were great and rough/tees were fine as well but a course with no fairways is an unexpected bummer.

Wildcat Course in rough shape

Played 18 on the wildcat course on 9/15/22. We got a “hot deal” which made it only $23 or so for 18 and a cart which is the only reason I’ve provided as many stars as I did. Clubhouse is dated, but ok. Staff didn’t leave an impression, bartender was helpful.

The course was in really poor shape. The greens were fine but the “fairways” were bad. I put fairways in quotes because, honestly, you’d be in better position to hit from the first cut of the rough. Most of the fairways were bare or weeds. A brand new ball could be pured down the middle and when you get to it you have to improve your lie because it’s covered in mud and below the surrounding weeds. The rough was ok, but a lot of Bermuda grass that would hide your ball for one, and grab your club in the swing on the off chance you could actually find it. Mowing must be done when it’s exceptionally high as well because there is lots of obvious dead grass from mowing around. Greens were in decent shape and played fast. Tee boxes were fine as well.

Pace of play was great. Our twosome never had to wait and no one was ever waiting on us. This is to be expected though for a 12:45 tee time in the middle of the week.

No beverage carts, but as I said the bartender was good at the turn.

If I had paid full price I would have been disgusted with the course conditions but at $23 all-in, it was “ok.”

no good

made a time on golf now for the big blue course. got to the course only to see there was a junior tourney going on. i was then assigned to play wildcat course. i got to the 1st tee and there were two groups waiting on the tee!!! two foursomes and they had not even teed off yet. This hasn't been the 1st time this has happened at this course. there seems to be no spacing between tee times. The group in front suggested I start on 10 tee and I did that. my round on the back was around 2 hours which is fine being behind some foursomes. Then I get to number 1 with finally no one on tee. I almost hit my drive and a guy says what are you doing. He said they had a tourney getting ready to start. I was not told any of this by the pro shop and just decided to leave. The course was not in good shape. The greens were smooth but had lots of unfixed areas. The fairways were fine. The rough was extremely patchy. Wont be back.

Great Course!

Really enjoyed the course! Course was in great condition. Pace of play was the only issue. The front 9 took right at 2 hours, which is fine, but the back took over 3. Not sure what happened there but overall good experience! I plan to play there again.

Best course in town

Best course in town by a landslide. Course was in great shape, greens were a little fast. Other than the wind coming into play on #14, best round in the last few months.

Really terrible shape

We were told in pro shop before round that course was in pretty good shape. Compared to what - a dirt field? Won’t play here again - very disappointed.
