Great Course

This course is probably the best value for the money of any public course I’ve played. They just do everything right and the course is in great condition. It’s definitely worth the drive if you want to have a great round of golf.

Wilderness

This Course is about 50 miles from my home. I had heard good things about it but had never played it. It was worth the drive. The Course was in excellent shape. The design was interesting. Greens were challenging and fast. The staff was friendly. Look forward to playing there again.

Fairways were nice green were just cut so they were not to fast just right. Greens held the ball good u could spin it back a lil. But with mid irons in u could get about a two ball hop and stop. Will be going back had two three putts on front one for double and next one for bogey. But came back on back nine shot two under with two lip out

Houston Area Must Play

The Wilderness Golf Course is the 4th Jeff Brauer designed course I've played in the last month. As is characteristic of the other designs I've played, The Wilderness is a bold layout with ample fairways, solid bunkering and wild greens. This course is a must play if you're in the Houston area.

Built on a flat piece of land, The Wilderness relies on bunkering, strong greens and we'll placed water hazards to challenge the player and keep things interesting. The front 9 is the longer of the two 9s and seems a bit more challenging. The back 9 has some shorter holes and a few quirks that make for a bit more fun.

The condition of the course is solid, but not spectacular. The maintenance staff has clearly worked hard to keep the course green and playable in the Texas summer heat. There are a few burnt out spots throughout the layout, but nothing that drastically affects play.

As I've already said, the greens are wild! The 7th hole has a green that's nearly 70 yards long. The 16th green is a Biarritz design and the 2nd green is a bit of a punch bowl. Each green has character and makes you want to play it again just to see different pin placements!

If you're in the Houston area, make it a point to take the short drive to Lake Jackson and play The Wilderness! You'll be glad you did!

My favorite hole is the long par 3 16th, which has the Biarritz green. The Biarritz is one of my favorite features and I always get excited for one of these greens!
