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
