Sky Creek Ranch was opened in August of 1999 and already has the look and feel of a tour quality layout and facility. Designed by nationally famous architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the par 72 public access course measures a very challenging 6953 yards from the back tees. Jones took full advantage of the lush surroundings and natural topographic beauty in Keller. Big Bear Creek winds through the entire property and comes into play on 16 of the 18 holes so some lay-ups will be needed. There are several lakes and many dogleg fairways throughout the course to challenge your skills. Dozens of white sand bunkers as well as native Oak trees lining Big Bear Creek will make your round picturesque. The greens are composed of difficult to care for bent grass to give each player a true feel for their putts while the tees and fairways are 419 bermuda. The back nine has three of the four par five holes giving you a fair chance at an eagle putt try.
I have played Sky Creek Ranch twice in tournaments and the staff is very helpful and friendly and keeps the course in great shape all year long. It is a 30 minute drive from west Fort Worth but well worth the effort. Give it a try soon.
Hit them straight.
