I have only been golfing for a few months and thought id try my hand at a nice course. Wildcat is the official course of all the Houston sports teams so I was expecting this place to be snooty but was very surprised at the laid back atmosphere. I booked a discounted tee time for 2 online for Saturday at... More

Played the Highlands course on Memorial Day weekend (2014) and came away extremely impressed. The course is laid out well, with numerous blind shots and forced carries on several holes. Pace of play wasn't bad, and we saw the beverage cart every 3-4 holes. Greens and fairways played really fast, although this is how I prefer it to be. The... More

We like playing there in the Summer because there's always a wind to keep you cool playing course. The design and course layout on either the Lakes or the Plains is excellent and challenging. Service and food in the club house is very good.

The Highland Course is a well maintained tough course in a nice scenery with beautiful nature reserves. In my opinion this course isn't fun for players with a high handicap, especially when the fairways are soaked after heavy rainfall and the balls don't roll. But when losing balls don't matter, it's totally worth to play. Just one bad thing: the... More

Both 18's of this golf course are excellent experiences. The course is in outstanding condition. Very interesting layout with some blind shots. It is a little pricey.

This may be a beautiful golf course but the the snooty employees dont make it worth the money. Go to the school thats onsite...the Matt Swanson school is awesome. Just pick somewhere else to play.

The Swanson Golf School has great lessons for every skill level. They even have kid classes on Saturday afternoons! Class prices are reasonable and golf pro's are outstanding. Facilities are better than what you would expect for a public course. Grille has great food and nice outdoor seating! Pro shop has good selection of men's and women's golf accessories!

I have played this course 3 times. This most recent trip, we finally played the Lakes course. This course makes you believe that it is open for grip-it-and-rip-it play, but it can make you pay for mistakes. The course is well maintained, the staff is pretty friendly, and the food is pretty good. The price for the course is fair...about... More

I only come here because of the golf school. The Matt Swanson school of Golf is very nice; instructors are professional and willing to take time out to explain. The staff at the golf house is not so warm and welcoming. Once you get past the snobs working the counter when you pay your high prices to play....then the rest... More

Wife and I played the Lakes Course on July 3, 2008. Overall, this is a pretty nice course, with well kept fairways, tee boxes and greens. Nice views of South Houston from higher tee elevations. The club house, pro shop and amenties are above average. However,... 1. The practice range is so far from the club house and starting area... More
