ConCan Country Club-Come for a Weekend, Stay for a Lifetime

Tucked in the Texas Hill Country, Con Can Country Club is a semi-private golf course community with panoramic views of the area, including the crystal clear Frio River in Northern Uvalde County.

With a championship length of 7,333 yards, the best
layers will certainly be challenged, but with three forward more tee positions down to 5,187 yards, every level of player should enjoy their round. You'll get a feel for the fairways at the practice area mat features a driving range, a 6,000-square-foot practice green and chipping green complex.

There are a limited number of memberships available in the community that has 99 fairway home sites, over a third of them sold before the Grand Opening. Building restrictions on homes in the golf course will maximize property values, and with several homes already under construction you will be able to see the results.

Texas Parks and Wildlife has given the golf course a wildlife management designation. With the lake stocked with large mourn bass, birds migrating through the river valley and deer sleeping in the hidden corners of the course, it will be hard to concentrate on the game at times. The design studios of Bechtol & Russell Golf (www. bechtolrussellgolf.com) of Austin laid out this course to maximize the views from each fairway to show off this stunning Hill Country location. Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell are responsible for some of the best courses in Texas, like The Legends, Star Ranch, The Golf Club of Texas, Ambush at Lajitas, Steiner Ranch, Circle C and Comanche Trace under their belt, ConCan follows in a proud tradition.

The course itself can be as friendly, or tough, as you want it to be with over a 2,000 yard difference from the 7,333-yard tips to the 5,187-yard forward tees. From the back tees, the rating/slope of 75.9/138 is as challenging as any you'll face in the Hill Country and you'll still battle a 73.4/136 from the 6,800-yard member tees. The layout is also unique with a par of 35 going out, beginning with four par-4s which happen to be four of the toughest nine holes on the course. But don't pack up at the turn, the par-37 back nine finishes with six of the nine easiest holes. And you'll love the variety of the par-3s, which will likely require four different clubs off the tees.

Kenneth and Barbara Arthur started Frio Country Resorts 25 years ago, with Con Can Country Club now the crown jewel of a family that includes Frio Country Store, Frio Construction, Frio Country Real Estate and House Pasture Catde Co. Restaurant. The Arthur's pride themselves in the family atmosphere that they run their businesses and with nine grand children there is always something going on.
