Great value!

Perfect day for golf. Staff was friendly. Course is in really nice shape. There was a 5 some that my twosome caught at #4, and had to wait til the turn to play thru. Sadly, I can’t use that as an excuse for hitting the 1st 4 greens in regulation and walking away with 4 bogeys. But still finished in less than 4 hours. An enjoyable day. I’ll be back!

Great course

Really enjoyed the round at The Wilderness. Enjoyed the golf course layout and the friendliness of the staff. Well kept course. The greens were punctured for airification but it was known before getting the tee time.
I took the Golf Daycatiion and played 36.

Excellent

Course was in excellent shape and the layout is great. Several driveable par 4’s and several that play long. The par 5’s are fair. Course reminds me of low country Carolina. Can’t wait to come back. One of the best values and courses in the state IMO

First Timer

After hearing about this course, I had to play it. The course was beautiful, the conditions were great. Front nine greens were sanded, but other than that, it was immaculate. Loved the layout.

Very worth the drive!

This course is a gem. Great layout, nice big greens, which roll very consistent and the scenery is fantastic. You truly are in the wilderness. We drive in from Houston which takes about an hour but is well worth it. I have never been disappointed here and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this course. If you’ve never played here, do yourself a favor and go. It won’t be your last round.

Worth the trip

The course is a hidden gem, well worth the trip. Greens were punched a few weeks ago, but really weren’t an issue., the tee boxes and fairways were in great shape.

Course is in Good Shape

The course is looking good and has some unique holes. Greens, fairways and most of the bunkers are really good. Pace of play was an issue; I was a single in a cart behind a foursome and couldn’t get past them even though I was on the tee box at the same time for several holes. I will give the course another try to see if this was an anomaly or not.

So much better than other courses around

I really appreciated the great condition of the bunkers. I was only in a couple, but having a bunker play like a bunker is really enjoyable. So many of the public courses in the Houston area have washed out or packed hard bunkers that are more like ground under repair than bunkers. Frequently, we declare our own rule that they are a free drop outside. No such rule at Wilderness. Outstanding. Fairways were in great shape, and the greens were nice as well. The greens had just a little remaining evidence of having been punched recently, but it didn't affect the roll. I wish the course were closer to me. I would play it frequently. The only issue I had was the starter bumping us back on our tee time to accommodate his friends just because they came up early for their tee time. It was not as if we were late. We approached the starter 7 minutes before our tee time while a group on the tee had not yet teed off.
