Nice course

I got to play this course with my son. Enjoyed the day and great view of Houston city skyline on #18 hole. Challenging course and lost a few balls in the water but all in all great day.

Wildcat Golf Club - The Lakes, 7.1/10

Course is always in fairly good shape. Green speeds vary by day, time of day, etc.

Wish the green speeds were more consistent from round to round. Can be quite challenging if wind is blowing, and pins are in difficult places.

Fun course to play, always plays differently based on the elements.

Tough Tee Shots on 70% of the holes.

KEYS TO SUCCESS: Accurate off Tee, Lag Putting

THINGS YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH: In-Accurate approach shots, as most danger is off tee-shot.

Overall -- good bang for your buck. Probably 1 of top 3 public courses in Houston.

Greens are rolling great

Easy check in with friendly employees. The restaurant had breakfast tacos, which hit the spot before playing. The greens were rolling great, probably the best I've seen them here at Wildcat. Definitely recommend.

Great conditions

Even after the rain over the weekend, the course was in great shape. The greens roll quick and punished any poor chips or approaches, but they were in perfect condition.
I will definetly be back.

Only one

I’ve played both courses at wildcat many times. Pro shop is very nice and so is the clubhouse and restaurant. Course was very soggy from 4 days of saturated air. I asked before setting out if it was cart path only due to ground being so wet. The staff looked at me like “Do you really need to ask” then said it was. I tee off and front 7 holes no one behind me. On the 8th hole a group showed up behind me. Caught me by surprise. Did not think I was playing that slow. my third shot on the par 5 I understood why. Here they come driving all over the fairway. I sped up and put two holes between by the 11th tee. On the 14th tee here they come pushing me again. How could I put 2 holes between us and now their on my butt again. Ahhh 8,9,&10 all go into the club house. They had to cart path. Now we’re away from clubhouse with no marshals. Therefore they can get away with tearing up the fairways. Then I look behind and the 3 groups behind them doing the same. Ok I hit to give me range and took off to get space. Hit to cart path, green, give me 2-3’ range and go. Did this until I finished. So much for having an enjoyable time. Went in pro shop and asked the new person was I the only one that was told cart path only? He just laughed and said well you know people going to do what they want when no one Is watching them. Just as he said it here comes the group straight up the 18th fairway. I pointed at them and said I guess so. The guy in the pro shop just shook his head and said yep. Premium course is going to be nothing but premium ruts by the end of the day. I guess if the pro shop don’t care, why should the guy that fixed 2-3 divots and 4-5 ball marks on the green at every hole he played give a darn. Now I know why there’s so many of both. They can add cart tracks to the list. Wildcat is my favorite course to play. I drive across town (from the Woodlands) when an opportunity to play comes up. It very upsetting that I was the only one that appreciates the course on this day. Greens always roll pristine. The new carts are great. The maintenance staff and cart barn kids have always been professional. The valets have always been great. Keeping the entrance clean even on a messy day. I know two of the pros that work there and both are upstanding, respectful, & prideful of where they work. I’ve played golf with one of the restaurant’s grille supervisors who is very proud to work there. I’ve met and or played golf with allot of the Marshalls. Wish one was there today! One of which has been a mentor to me for the better part of 30 years. Sad that the people who get to play these great courses don’t give a darn about the job any of them do. Nor do they care about someone that relishes the chance to play either of these courses because of the facility and people. They just want to tear up the course, impose on the person in front of them, all so they can play a 3 hr round. I guess as the guy in the pro shop, whom by the way I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, said. People will do whatever they want as long as no one is watching them. To him all I have to say is “Only people who lack integrity and respect for those whose living is earned managing that fine facility...
Those people are not me”.

Thank you for noticing. I know your staff works hard to create a great experience for all golfers. I wish I could be as diplomatic. I would suggest push carts or carry on the extremely wet days. Save on the additional maintenance caused by carts. Use the money to build the pro’s a training facility that is welcoming and upstanding as the courses it represents. That is how my brain works.
Not very diplomatic.

Very Average

It's okay. Not great and maybe not even good. Fairways and greens are fairly good but rough and areas around are a little bit out of shape. Not worth anything over $40 in my opinion. Staff was very friendly and helpful, pace of play was very slow today.

Great Course

This is an awesome course which will cause you to use every club in your bag. If you haven't played this course before, this is one course that should be added to your must play list. We had so much fun and the wind makes you think even harder on shot selections. The greens were fast and the par 5's are a blast to play and not to mention the holes starting at #7 when water comes into play on you tee and approach shots. It's a must paly and I will be playing Wildcat Lakes again soon.

Nice!!!

This course is well maintained and the greens were in great condition! I didn’t like the fact you have so many (4 or 5) blind tee shots but you’re going to get that with rolling hills. The course layout was beautiful and challenging! Great spot! I’ll be back!!
