No real trouble
Condition was great, Starter was great (let me skip ahead 2 groups to play solo instead of paired with high handicap members), no real trouble for the lay out, only 1 200+yd par 3. Overall a relaxing round, but I’d rather play the lakes course.
Cold and Windy with Great Conditions
It was about 47deg outside and blowing a solid 10-15mph, but hey new years eve golf... why not. This course is always well maintained. Greens were fast and smooth, somewhat dormant now but still appeared to be cut. Course was fairly crowded, but pace was under 4hrs easy, and most other days pace is under 3hrs. Can't go wrong with Wildcat for the location, cost and conditions.
The greens are in excellent shape and fast!
The Highlands Course is a challenging course with well maintained greens and fairways. A few blind shots which require some prior research.
Best course in Central Houston vicinity
For all the people inside the loop, or those who don't want to drive up to Spring or Humble, this is hands down the best golf course there is.
The grounds are very well taken care of, with the exception of some greens. But I blame that on non courteous golfers who apparently don't bother to fix their divots.
Anyway, the course is amazing, we always have a great time here. They have gained a customer for life.
Unique course with none like it in the Houston area!
Greens are great!
Course full of people so play was slow. Greens putted true and were soft enough to hold shots. Enjoyable course to play.
Easy access, great condition.
WC Highlands, just a few minutes south of I610 South Loop. Open links style course with varying elevations. Greens, tees, and fairways all in good condition. Challenging, but fair layout. Great views of Downtown Houston in distance. You have to think out strategy and execute on every hole. Good food and drink in the grill. Well staffed.
Worth a trip
From the Pro Shop to the 18th green, everything was first class. Course was in great shape and service top notch. Well worth playing
It was great course and fun layout
Not much difficulty, clean cut farways, fast green speed I like it.
Great Fall Day in the Highlands
It was a great fall day with perfect weather at the Wildcat Highlands. Greens are in great conditions but faster than most other courses in area. Fairways in great shape. Pace of play was very good even though their was a small tournament going on at the same time.
It's a must
This course was amazing. I chose to play the highlands over the lakes, because I didn't want to loose too many balls in the water. I was super impressed by this course. Pretty impressive elevation changes for it being in Houston. It also had a links style of feel to it, which made it feel like you were in another part of the country. The fairways and greens were in pristine condition. I got a great deal on GolfNow, so the value for the money was amazing. Maybe the only negatives were the weather, it was pretty muggy for this time of the year,, and the carts had no GPS, which is not a big deal if you have your own GPS tracker. I will definitely want to return to this course and hopefully shoot a better score. Highlands was by far one of the best course I've ever played on. Two thumbs up!!
Good luck on first trip
Course is in excellent condition and the views are spectacular. If you never played the course, or it's been a while, you have almost no chance on many of the holes. Blind shots and waste areas that unexpectedly poke out mean that you will lose balls that are well struck and aimed where you THOUGHT you wanted to go. From the tee box, you will be hard pressed to even figure out which direction the flag is on a few holes.
When you do find the green, you will be treated to some of the nicest short grass in the city. If you miss a putt it's on you because the greens roll true.
I can't wait to go back with a little more knowledge of where NOT to hit it.
