Pecan Grove came along in the late 1970s when J.B. Belin brought Carlton Gipson in to help him mold this country setting into a golf course community. As the name implies, pecan trees are prevalent, as well as oaks and other thick forestry. Gipson's layout is carved out of this terrain and winds through the residential community.
The course was 18 holes when it opened in 1979; Gipson added a third nine in 1988.
The Grove Course features flat, narrow fairways and is the longest of the three courses. No. 5 stands out because of its length (436 yards) and the fact that it's almost mandatory to cut the corner of the dogleg to avoid a monstrous approach shot.
The Pecan Course is known for having more water than the other two. Its feature hole is No. 9, and like the other courses, is another long par 4 dogleg into an elevated green.
Getting there : From Houston, travel south on US 59 and take Hwy. 6. Turn left on Hwy. 90 west and drive 8 miles until you reach FM 359. Turn right onto Plantation Dr. and take the first left into the club parking lot.
