Nice Course

Course is very enjoyable with a nice mix of friendly and challenging. Conditions for time of year were very solid with greens rolling well despite being punched. The varying undulations and layouts of the greens made for some difficult putting but added character. Only minor complaints would be the wet sand in most of the greenside bunkers. Would definitely come back.

Always Impressed

One of the best tracts around the area. Always in great condition. Played pretty fast for a 4 some, about 3 1/2 hrs. Lots of singles out on Sunday afternoon it seems so they were probably frustrated. Staff is very courteous and friendly.

Awesome, as usual

I don’t get down to play the wilderness very often, but once again it’s proven to be well worth the wait.

Staff: as always, small town friendliness with a professional demeanor. Knowledgeable, helpful and genuinely nice people. To include the maintenance guys on the mowers. Talked to a couple of them and they were all nice guys.

Range/chipping area/practice green: I could spend all day just practicing here. Doesn’t get crowded and is not only in top shape but is almost an exact replica of the conditions you’ll find on the course.

Pace: I teed off at 9:00 on a Tuesday. Didn’t see another soul until #14.

The course: finally, the course. As usual it is in excellent shape. From tee to green you couldn’t ask for better conditions. The layout is challenging, but rewards well hit shots. The greens were in excellent shape and even with a little moisture on the ground, they rolled fairly fast.

This course points out your flaws immediately, yet rewards well struck balls. I wish I could give it six stars.

1 hour drive to the best course from Houston

Every time I make this short trip from Houston to Lake Jackson I’m never disappointed. The greens have to be the biggest in a 50 mile radius from Houston. The speeds of the greens are always above 12. If you don’t know then these are PGA tour green speeds. Crazy fast. Plus a great tee boxes for all levels of play. Great place to play.

Hidden Jewel

The wilderness Golf Course is a must play!
If you enjoy the outdoors and the game of golf I highly recommend playing this course. I generally play the golf courses surrounding the Clear Lake area and this track is above and beyond any layout offered here. Well worth the seventy minute drive. Friendly staff including the starter, nice range to warm up. Greens were true and running about a10/11 stimp. Green side sand bunkers are very well maintained and protect the large greens nicely which requires a thoughtful approach shot.
Great golf course !

Exceptional Golf Course

The Wilderness is a hidden treasure in the Houston area. If you are willing to venture south of the city, you will not find a better golfing experience. It is a great course and when I played on New Year's Day, it was in excellent condition.

Great course, poor greens

This is a fantastic course that was ruined because the greens Had been punched and the ball bounces all over and off line.

I will be back, but maybe in a month.
