Wildcat Golf Club’s two pristine courses take golfers on a competitive expedition through an emerald labyrinth of rolling Texas Hill Country. Players can prepare for the courses’ manifold hazards and heckling sand-trap rakes with 10 one-hour clinics from Wildcat’s golf school, where classes of 10 pupils or fewer learn the finer points of the game at the feet of seasoned instructors. Players will need to call upon all of their golfing gumption to conquer the 7,016-yard Lakes course, which begins at a breathtaking elevation of 100 feet before descending into a valley populated by vast lakes that come into play on seven holes. Knee-high native grasses, ever-deepening ravines, and mounded terrain supply the bulk of the difficulty on the 6,954-yard Highlands course, where the distinct, links-style terrain of Scotland meets the sun-kissed weather and roaming linebackers of Texas. Standing on the immaculate Bermuda grasses that define both courses, players can enjoy sweeping panoramas of Houston’s downtown skyline, the Galleria, and Reliant Stadium.
