The front nine of Pecan Valley has recently been turned into a 9-hole course of par 4’s and 3’s for young golfers to enjoy as a First Tee Instructional Facility, but it is still available to golfers of all ages. And all ages will be able to enjoy the new driving range with grass hitting areas and practice bunkers near the practice greens.
