In 1995, architect Jeffrey Brauer cast a series of 18 holes across the hilly, forested acres adjacent to Ash Creek to form the Cross Timbers Golf Course. Mr. Brauer choreographed the layout?s turns and fairways to take advantage of the land?s natural attributes, such as its numerous changes in elevation and absolute lack of active volcanoes. Today, players cruise over the meticulously kept fairways en route to Champion bermuda greens. On the front nine, players must tackle the 484-yard, par 4 fifth hole and the course's signature ninth, where tee shots soar over a treacherous ravine onto a green teetering on the precipice of a cliff. At hole 18, a par 5 is reachable with calculated risk-taking and precise execution.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,734 yards from the back tees
Blue Sky Media leverages a bevy of strategic marketing partnerships with premier Texas courses to grant golfers access to some of the state's finest fairways. The group's annual Blue Sky Golf Passes dole out fistfuls of discounts to courses throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, freeing up some coins for golfers to use as ball-markers or throw into water hazards to wish for more coins. Between putts and drives, discounts on pro shop gear and fare refuel hard-swinging golfers and caddies exhausted from polishing the dimples of each ball.

Originally served along the tree-lined banks of its namesake body of water, Woody Creek Bar-B-Q's array of smoked meats and sauces satisfies stomachs within the confines of the restaurant's indoor digs.
