Sammons Park Golf Course Temple, Texas

The course was built a century back, in 1922, and designed by John Sammon from whom the course got its name.


Sammons is a pretty course wrapped around a lake and a park. The course was designed as a links-style course except that it is not built on coastal sandy dunes.

The parks and the lake that are part of the property add to the serenity and are also a good spot for relaxing and even having a fun family outing.

Situated close to the city center, this facility is also a reprieve from the urban hustle and bustle.

This course can be challenging. Water comes into play on 14 holes with the majority of them centered around the lake with a creek and pond on the back 9’s. There are a few holes with peninsula-type greens where the greens are built onto the side of the lake.

The routing can be a bit confusing due to this and one can even get lost if they didn’t know the way around.

The fairways are wide for the most part, however, there are trees that can pose a hazard and so shot placement can yield better results. 

Measuring 6600 yards from the back tees, the course is a medium-length course. With 4 sets of tees available, this can be a fun and challenging course for golfers at all skill levels.
