Shady Valley on a cold day

This course is a fun course to play assuming you hit the ball fairly straight. This time of year of the fairways were dormant, but the greens ran nicely and overall the experience was enjoyable.

Nice Course, Good Layout

Note to self: when the course is called Shady anything, that means lots of trees! Wife and I played at Shady Valley while visiting family in the area. Rate paid is for ClubCorp members. Old course with interesting layout. Not many straight holes - lots of doglegs. Lots of trees. Fairways and greens in outstanding shape (except at 11 AM they still hadn't replaced the tee markers after mowing). Traps were a mixed bag, Some dirt. Some clay. Some sand. Members were great about letting a twosome play through. Golf shop staff seemed like we were bothering them. Recommend the course if in the area.

Definitely worth playing

Make sure you stay in the fairway and on the greens. Some of the most penalizing rough in the metroplex. Greens were great but had just a touch of sand still on them. Probably close to impossible once it is all gone.

time to sell

every now and then you get to a course and find out it is way past its prime. this is one of those courses, outdated and frayed around the edges. only one elevation change, up one hole, down the next, it is flat and not very exciting other than the creek which winds through this flood plain. it is time to sell this course, build a park and perhaps housing on the back nine.

When Shady Valley is available, you should play it....

Being a private club, the opportunities to play Shady Valley are limited. So when it was available yesterday, I jumped at it. This course is fun and challenging! It's only 6,550 yards from the tips, but it is sneaky long and is a shot-maker's course. The greens were absolutely perfect yesterday, the tees were good, traps well maintained. Fairways could use a little work, but otherwise this is a great course to go play.

Excellent club.

I recently got married in the downtown Fort Worth area. The day of the wedding Shady Valley and club general manager Dee Thomas hosted my groomsmen, family and extended family friends, a total of 20 guys. Mr. Thomas and staff accommodated the group and all had a great time. Great course, great club!
