Disappointing

I have played both Wildcat courses a lot and had my first bad experience. It was a Friday, one of their "premier" days, but the greens had been aerated recently and had not been mowed. The greens were bumpy, slow, and unpredictable. That happens because of necessary green maintenance, but we paid top dollar on a "premier" day and were not told of the condition of the greens. I would have played elsewhere had I known beforehand about the greens. That said, I will play there again because I really like the place.

Play here

Greens have been punched and sanded, which have to be done. But they roll good and it will only get better. My only complaint is the pace, Marshall's ride around but the pace didn't imorove.. During the week, great place. Weekend, expect 5 hours.

Good track

One of the best public course options and most expensive on S/SE side of town. If you can pick up a round in the $30's or less it is a great value. Drastically different feel from the Lakes course, and a better course/layout/design, in my opinion. Pretty easy and gettable from the whites, where I play, so I typically play some of my best golf here. Couple of the guys in the group played farther back and it seemed like it would be much more difficult from farther back. Without a good discount I'll look somewhere else, especially considering I'm driving 45 minutes or so, but with a good price, I'm always happy to go! Based on this and past experiences, I believe ownership is looking to take care of their customers. Always a treat to play Highlands.

Wildcat lakes course

This was a great challenge, beautiful views, long enough to require the use of every club in your bag and was in great condition. There was a lot of water hazards as the name suggests so you really need to be on top of your game or you could lose a lot of balls.

We had a couple slow groups in front of us which made the round longer than necessary and we paid to play the highlands course but somehow was put out onto the lakes course.

Other than that the experience was absolutely amazing.

July 7th

Course is in excellent condition. Greens and fairways played great. Waited at a couple tee boxes but not long. 4 hours 20 mins. If I had any complaints it would be the driving range. The driving area was wet and soft. Couldn’t really hit anything that wasn’t on a tee. But really, that was minor.

Rain shortened round

Played the Highlands at Wildcat- First time.
Overall, really enjoyed the course, but would have enjoyed much more if I had played it once before..There are a couple of funky holes where your drive looks perfect, and then once you get over a hill, you find you've gone through the fairway into knee to shoulder high rough= lost ball! Oddly, seems like you need to hit an iron or hybrid off the tee on a couple of par 5s! Otherwise, it was a fun course, and in very good shape! We only got through 13 holes before lightning struck nearby...and we headed for the clubhouse.

Good layout

Golf course is in good shape, the greens were rolling well but I just wish that you could see more of the fairways from the tees.

Challenging and fun

we enjoy the short par 4s and the undulation of both the course, and the greens. The greens are fast and challenging.
