Golf Advisor rankings recognize The Wilderness at Lake Jackson golf course
LAKE JACKSON, Texas (July 28, 2018) – Just months following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, The Wilderness at Lake Jackson continues to be recognized for its excellence as one of the best courses to play in the region. This year, it was once again honored by Golf Advisor in their list of top-rated courses in the U.S. according to costumer reviews.
Golf Advisor is the leading source of golf course ratings and reviews by golfers. Golf Advisor ranked the top-rated courses in the country during the first quarter of 2018 according to customer ratings and reviews awarding The Wilderness at Lake Jackson No. 7 for exceeding golfer’s expectations.
“We are so honored to continue to receive this wonderful recognition. This one is truly remarkable given our circumstances last fall with Hurricane Harvey and the previous floods in August, September, and October of 2017,” said KemperSports General Manager Doug Borow. “It is a real testament to the teamwork displayed on a daily basis by our staff and the support of our customers.”
The Wilderness at Lake Jackson made national news during last year’s life changing flood when the agronomy team, in an attempt to save the maintenance equipment and cart fleet, strategically placed each vehicle around a putting green on the highest point of the property. The teams forward-thinking accelerated the clean-up and recovery of the golf course quickly achieving the conditions its customers come to expect while saving the golf course almost $1M dollars in maintenance equipment.

The Wilderness at Lake Jackson transcends time and delivers guests back to the days when early settlers traveled from town to town in search of the next golden nugget. The rustic, western-themed clubhouse is completed with a manicured property featuring 18 holes of naturally rolling terrain nestled in the wetlands area of Lake Jackson. The Wilderness is the place to spend the day, or the weekend for the golf enthusiast from across the state. With the small-town atmosphere and the big city accommodations, The Lake Jackson Wilderness continues to be a “must play” experience.
