Pecan Creek Park
9 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -- Tee signs with all the basic info (map, par, distance, although distance is in yards).
-- Map at parking lot.
-- Mach V baskets.
-- Best holes are 3 and 10. Three is LONG and open uphill over a quarry to a basket with trees close behind it. Ten is just over 300 feet, wide open for the first 200 feet before trees and creek near the basket.
Cons: -- Several holes that have no business existing on a disc golf course. No. 4 is an S shape that requires both right and left turns of 90 degrees. No. 6 requires a 90-degree left turn. No. 15 requires a 90-degree right turn between private property (marked No Trespassing) and a skate park. No. 17 has the basket right, on the other side of a creek, from the tee with NO path to reach the basket.
-- Natural tee pads that are not holding up well and are not well defined.
-- Navigation and flow. Some baskets and tees are too close together; in other cases, the intuitive path takes you to the wrong tee pad.
-- The map and tee sign disagree on the direction of the basket on hole 10 in relation to the tee. The tee sign is correct.
Other Thoughts: -- Two of the problem holes seem to have fairly easy fixes. From the six tee, you can see the basket straight ahead. Minor clearing would create a small but fair path to throw straight ahead. On 17, you could move the basket to the left side of the creek (same side as the tee pad) or do some minor clearing to give a path (or at least a landing zone) for your tee shot.
-- The pond mentioned in other reviews (and shown on the map) for holes 6-7 was non existent in March 2023. Not only was there no water, the ground was dry to the point of being sandy with no hint of moisture.

What a mess

Pros: Tee signs
Still like new Mach V baskets.
Cons: Dirt/grass tee pads
Tee signs were in yards
crazy wooded holes
Other Thoughts: Well, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I got to this course. You start off with the first 2 holes being both under 150ft with hole 1 being a par 2 and hole 2 literally throwing down an old bridge. (seriously, see pictures)
Then you get to hole 3 that is a long wide open shot with the last of the hole throwing over a quarry of some sort with the basket at the top of the hill.
Now it's time for the fun, the next couple of holes are VERY tight where you can't throw hard unless you know where the basket is and go over everything. Hole 4 is a crazy S shaped hole with the fairway going to a 90 degree right turn and then the basket is on the left of the clearing. On top of that, the tee area is uphill.
Hole 5 is not quite as crazy, it is a 90 degree turn left, but a much better defined fairway.
Hole 6 is almost as crazy as hole 4, Very tight shot though some woods to a small creek, then 90 degrees to the left down a narrow path with the pond on the left side of the fairway.
hole 7 shows the throw is suppose to be down the path of the dam, however I took the big anhyzer route over the pond.
Then you get back into what you would expect from a disc golf course.
I think the signature hole for this course would be hole 10. You are throwing across a field with the last 3rd of the hold being though a grove of trees with a creek crossing. While only just over 300ft, the first drive is key to getting your 3.
Then the course opens back up and is mostly longer bomber shots till you get to hole 17. I have no idea what you are suppose to do here. I could not see any sort of a fairway. I threw as far as I could down the walking path then tried to pound my disc thought he trees to the basket. My 2nd shot was on the creeks edge and I was able to lay up for a 4. But even standing next to the basket, I could not see a "fairway" to the basket.
Then you finish with a nice little 180ft shot back across the creek to finish your round.
Would I play here again? Nope, this course is a mess. It has some decent holes, but it also has some CRAZY holes I don't want to ever see again. This is the type of course you play once and never play again. I can't say don't ever play it, but i would not want this to be my home course.

So hard to discribe
Pros: This course is very unique. Nice baskets and signs(although signs are in yards) Nice elevation change and variety of shots. some holes are very easy some are pro level hard.
Cons: Not great for beginners. The signs are not 100% correct and lots of blind shots 4-8. #17 needs some tree tops loped off i played in winter and still had no way to go over the water since the trees on both sides are so high. Or you have to play all the way to a bridge and back making it a par 5-6.
Other Thoughts: 1-2 are ace run holes super short par 2. So you think wow such and easy park. #2 is nice over the bridge. then you get to 3 super long up on top of a big hill. Par 4 and its hard at that. Then 5-8 okay these are better the 2nd time since the signs are confusing. A pro may just to over the trees but is you play as designed. Super tight twist through woods. Punished for bravery. Play it safe is the best bet. Even though most say par 4 its hard. #6 is almost even to tee sign. Play out and back towards yourself. Like i said a pro may just go over water and trees if that is even fair play. Then #9-18 play more typical and less blind. Although 14-15 play 90 degree turns around private property. #17 as designed is pretty hard without some tree tops being trimmed. # 18 is back to maybe an ace over water to end on a good note.
If you are an experienced player you will enjoy the unique holes of this course way more than an amature.
