The Highlander Golf Program is one of the best in the state of Texas. We have a tradition of consistently competing at the State level. But we didn't get where we are through luck. The Woodlands High School golfers play and practice at world-class facilities at The Woodlands Country Club and The Woodlands Resort. We appreciate the generosity of those clubs and their continuing support of our program! TWHS golfers maintain a high standard of excellence in play, course etiquette, and character on and off the course. We are proud of our players and their accomplishments.
