Best to bring your A game — and an extra sleeve of balls — when you play Sky Creek Ranch, the magnificently designed Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course in Keller. In true Texas golf fashion, the course takes full advantage of a variety of sweeping panoramic views that only complement its generous layout and playability. Those who like water hazards will enjoy the beauty and challenge provided by Bear Creek that comes into play on 16 of the 18 holes. Even one of the non-creek holes, the 212-yard par three No. 14, forces golfers to play past a huge lake — more than 100 yards — to the green. Situated atop the highest point in Tarrant County, Sky Creek Ranch lays claim to a great day of golf and some of the greatest views around.
