Welcome to Keene, Texas

Keene offers visitors and residents the charm and warm hospitality of small-town life at its best combined with easily available modern conveniences and amenities. Located 30 minutes south of Fort Worth, Keene has it all: a mild four-season climate, recreational opportunities, a large University, award-winning schools, myriad of cultural and social activities, affordable cost-of-living, and a thriving and prosperous business community.

The Keene Chamber of Commerce has been serving Keene since 1993. We strive to partner with local businesses, government and education to support a favorable economic environment. The Chamber represents business, organization, and individual members who depend on the Chamber for member services including networking events, community and business development, ribbon cuttings, growth opportunity reports, economic data gathering, business referrals, business seminars, relocation packets, and being an advocate with governmental and regulatory bodies. These are among the many services we provide to our members.

The Keene Chamber's objective is to provide a platform from which our members can enhance their business or organization through networking and programs designed to improve their bottom-line and to make available the tools necessary to excel as the economy improves. Our mandate is to pursue opportunities in the areas of retail development and education. We will work diligently to ensure that our local economy is strong and vibrant.

Dan Mertz wins Keene City Golf Championship

A local dentist drilled it in the fairway enough Sunday to pull out a win in the Championship Flight of the 4th annual Keene City Golf Championship at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson.

Dan Mertz, of Mertz Family Dentistry in Keene, won the Championship Flight with a one-over-par 71, defeating two-time defending champ Ricky Stephens. The regular par 72 course became a par 70 when course administration shortened two par-4 holes because of standing water on the fairway due to recent rains.

Keene High School girls basketball coach John McFarlin won the Open Division with an 85, and Keene High School senior Brooke Hinerman won the Women's Division with an 88.

The tournament was open to players who currently reside in Keene, or are a current or former employee of an entity in Keene, or
 are a graduate or spouse of a graduate of Keene schools.

Trophies will be presented to the winning trio during the sold out 25th annual Keene Chamber of Commerce banquet Thursday night at the new Keene Community Center.

The 5th annual Keene City Championship will be Sunday Oct. 20, 2019.
