Golf

With Houston's mild climate, you can hit the golf links 365 days a year. Not far from the city's impressive glass-and-steel skyscrapers are dozens of superb daily-fee facilities, many of which have sprouted like mushrooms in the past few years. Drive in any direction from downtown, and you will find not dead-flat oil fields-the common misconception-but an attractive array of courses set on rolling, wooded land.

With an average annual temperature of 70 degrees and 250 sunny days per year, the weather is perfect for golf, especially in spring and fall.

Park History

Hermann Park is located in one of the most picturesque areas of Houston. Nestled in between the Museum District, the Texas Medical Center and Rice University Hermann Park provides Houstonians with plenty of greenspace to enjoy Houston's temperate climate. Hermann Park is one of Houston's first parks and is one of the premiere parks in the department's inventory of parks.

In 1914 Board of Parks Commissioner, George H. Hermann, donated 285 acres of land for the creation of a park. A year later, in 1915, Houston Mayor Ben Campbell encouraged the city to add to the acreage by purchasing an additional 122 acres.

The entrance to the park is at the intersection of Main St. and Montrose Blvd. a statue of General Sam Houston points the way into the park and its many amenities.

Wildcat Golf Club

12000 Almeda Road
Houston, Texas
(713) 413-3400

At first sight, the Highlands Course offers a links golf experience, but you'll soon discover the open tumbling fairways and impressive elevations are more typical of a Texas Hill Country course. Throughout your round, 6,954 yards from the tips, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the city – from Houston's Galleria area to the Medical Center, Reliant Park to Downtown. It's breathtaking. But stay focused. Every hole on the Highlands course offers a challenge. Protected by well-placed bunkers, lying beyond deep ravines, each pin demands your full attention. Course management will come to mind as you discover an errant shot is held captive by native grasses, or lost to a miscalculation of distance.

To ensure optimal playing surfaces, Wildcat golfers tread only the finest turf grasses: TifSport Bermuda covers the fairways and roughs; TifEagle Bermuda yields smooth, consistent greens. Renowned architect Roy Case has combined playability with exciting challenges to provide golfers a delightful golf experience regardless of skill level.

Water, Water Everywhere

Tee up on #1 and you think, "What water?" Be patient. On the Lakes course you start high. Its highest elevations – up to 100 feet – provide breathtaking views of Houston's major sports complex – Reliant Stadium, home to the Houston Texans. As you work your way down you'll see the water – acres of seemingly countless lakes. The Lakes' dramatic elevation changes can be rivaled by no other course in Houston. Water comes into play on seven of the Lakes' magnificent holes. Playing 7,016 from the tips, the Lakes is a bit longer than the Highlands. You'll enjoy navigating around the water, managing the Lakes rolling fairways and experiencing its fast greens. Dramatic elevation changes, water carries and stunning views – the Lakes will make use of all your senses and talents
