Golfers can choose to tee off at the nine-hole par 3 course that runs along the beautiful Pecos River, the regulation 18-hole course situated in the foothills east of the river or the par 72 regulation course, which is not long, but offers a variety of challenges no matter what your skill level.

This is a 3.25 little course. Played the par 3 this afternoon before the storm. It was inexpensive, carts included. Play 9 or 18 holes for the same price. The greens were in very good shape considering it's a muni course; scenic view along the...More

The first view of this golf course is stunning. Situated along the Pecos River, I expected the course to be topnotch, especially for the price we paid - $46 for 9 holes on the Par 3. But from the first tee, my expectations didn't even...More

I've been playing LCGC for a few years now and I have seen great changes made on this course. The only big problem is slow play. There are a few retirees that think they own the course and will not let you play through. But...More

I began learning to play golf recently. The nine-hole, par three is a good, non-intimidating place to start. I like the views as you play along the river. It's usually not crowded, and it's also surprisingly inexpensive: $5.50 to play through the nine-hole twice. Hard...More
