CROSS TIMBERS GOLF CLUB (817-444-4940)
Texas Golf Course Review
Cross Timbers in Azle - northwest of Fort Worth, is a par 72, 18-hole championship course with some surprising elevation changes. The first and tenth holes begin from extremely elevated tees, and holes number 3 and 12 play over deep valleys, as does the beautiful par three ninth - perhaps the prettiest hole on the course.
The par five 18th is another pretty golf hole - as it doglegs to the left past a lake with three sand traps protecting the green. Golfers will encounter fairly level terrain the rest of the way, with a mix of tree lined and open fairways that lead to slightly raised green complexes.
Overall this is a very player friendly layout, and is priced in the good value range. There are 4 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 6734 yards/128 slope, 6417 yards/121 slope, 5968 yards/116 slope, and 5051 yards with a slope of 111 from the forward tees.
On course there are yardage markers on the fairways and cart paths at 100, 150 and 200 yards on all par fours and fives, and color coded flags indicate front, middle or back hole locations on the medium sized, mildly undulating putting surfaces.
On property is a pro shop with adjacent snack bar that serves breakfast and lunch items, as well as beer and beverages. The practice facility consists of a targeted grass range, chipping green with sand bunker, and putting green.
This is a good experience for beginners and for those looking for a relaxing round without having to stop at an ATM. The elevation changes make it interesting, and the 165 yard ninth is one of the prettiest par threes you will find. For more info, visit our page for the course by clicking here.
