It was a great day of golf for $12.00. We were actually able to get in 27 holes in less than 4 hours. The course was in great shape and we had a great time. The staff at Pecan Valley are very nice. Would recommend both the River and Hills courses to anyone.

Not a bad place for a little on course practice. Balls are lost very easily in the rough, lots of ground cover (dead leaves, fallen tree branches, lots of acorns etc. ). Could stand to be cleared up/ cleaned up a bit. Greens where good.

Pecan Valley Hills course is a user friendly course that is fun to play. Holes 2, 6, 8 and 9 are probably the most challenging. No. 2 requires a good second shot across a generous pond, No. 6 can be had if you stay out of the trees off the tee (use iron off the tee), No. 8 requires a nice fade around a couple of large trees protecting the right side of the fairway and No. 9 is a severe dog-leg left hole that can be a problem if you can't hit a middle to long iron draw off the tee. The greens were in very good shape and the fairways were OK (sort of typical muni fairways). I play this course often and it is a good value.

It was a little damp with scattered showers but the course was a pleasant surprise. Nothing overly challenging but it had some nice dog leg holes and shot placement needed off some tee shots. Some greens had a small weed problem and teesee needed some cutting but greens were receptive and rolled true. Will be back to play the river course.

The course is actually pretty good. The greens are well maintained as well as the fairways. We actually arrived early. Seeing that there was no one on the course we thought we might go to the first hole to see if we could get off. There was literally no one on the course so we felt like we could go ahead and tee off; however, one of the staff members specifically rode her cart to our position and told us we had to wait until our tee time. I think there is no doubt we were asked to wait because we used golfnow so we waited until the staff told us we could go. If you use golfnow, you will be required to wait for your tee time even though no one may be on the course. No common sense or courtesy will be extended.

This is the sister course to the River Course, which I have not played but it can be seen from the entry road and looks like it is in much better shape than the Hills. Several Greens were under "maintenance", was aggravating as it messed up my approach strategy. All in all, it's a good value I suppose.

In the past, I loved playing the River course. You could always tell that the city put the money needed into it to make it a great track from tee to green. But, when I played it most recently, it was in the worst conditions I have seen there. The tee boxes were not manicured, the bunkers had no sand in them, weeds everywhere and the greens were beyond bumpy. I do not know what happened, every other course in the area is in great shape but this one seems to be struggling.

First thing is they raised the price of their green fees. Ok whatever , BUT , the tee boxes were trashed , then the fairways were hard pan with not a hint of growing grass and not one decent lie on any of the fairways ! The greens were totally horrible . Sparce , bumpy, and borderline unplayable , and for all this we paid $40 each . Such a disappointment since most of the other courses around are in good condition. The condition of this course completely ruined our weekly outing with the golf buddies ! We will never return until maybe the course manager has a clue what fertilizer is used for !!!

This was my first time playing pecan valley. I am by no means a good golfer, but this course was challenging but not too intimidating to hit over a water hazard. The course was very well maintained. The greens were slower in the morning, but became really fast and unpredictable by comparison later in the day. This is a great value for a round of golf at one of the better maintained courses in the DFW area. I would highly recommend trying it out if you have not played there.

Played this course because I caught it on a deal. The course itself is pretty friendly to golfers not hitting it perfectly on every shot. The greens were surprisingly nice. They rolled true even though the course was still in winter conditions. More open than the "River" side the "Hills" is still plenty good enough for some enjoyment. The overall price is reasonable for a municipal course. The staff was courteous. If the price is right I wouldn't have a problem playing here again.
