Fun course but slightly confusing
A short course that has great scenery even in the middle of the city. Layout of the holes was confusing and I got lost a couple of times but everything else was fantastic, will definitely be back.
Great would go again
This course is very good for the money, the greens where a bit on the slow side but it was hard to find a bad spot of fairway,great layout but it is very easy to get lost if it is your first time.
Good Shape - Very Busy
We just got past two solid weeks of rain. The course has finally dried out enough to be good again. The greens have recovered nicely and are in good shape.
I have two complaints: too many beginners were on the course. I realize we want everyone to play, especially on a public course...but it really made it difficult. I counted two groups of six - playing best ball with 3 to a team. If these were solid players it would have been ok playing superball...but they were really slow!
A second complaint I have is the computer-assisted carts. IF a hole is cart path only they should have the screen popup as you approach the tee and beep: Cart Path ONLY. It would allow us to get 20 feet off the cart path, then it would start beeping and going at a snail's pace. Very annoying.
Course is slowly coming around, but evidence of the Deep Freeze of February is still showing on the new greens. The course does have drainage issues on several holes, but it is still a fun layout. It’s a fun course to play with a great staff. Burgers are amazing!!
Such a shame
This could be a Texas treasure. First of all there is zero coordination, no starter, just get in line and wait. Second problem is you have no idea where to go, especially in hole number 12. Thank god for nice folks behind us and following folks in front.
Water is a huge problem. You hit a great tee shot and it plugs in a grass puddle. 15-17 are amazing holes.
The trash in creeks and all the marshlands is an embarrassment. The greens are bumpy and slow.
This course needs a new superintendent and club manager!!!!
Nice Municipal Course
I really enjoy playing this course. There's surprisingly quite a few water hazards to contend with but a fun course nonetheless.
Nice course but
It was a nice golf course with fairways and greens. The guy who signed us in was great and marshal, but some of the others were not. Coming from Georgetown, disappointed with some attitudes of other players. I guess they thought they were in the pro circuit.
Sun, fun and back on the course
Fun round of golf. Greens were a bit inconsistent between the front nine and the back nine but fun nonetheless.
Good greens and great use of water
Sammons GC is a beautiful and sprawling property. Wide fairways and a links layout make it a forgiving course for beginners. Water plays a role on almost half the holes but a couple of short par 4s give you a chance to score. It was rainy but the greens held up very well. I will be back.
First time at Sammons...
Nice public course, easy to find of off I-35 in Temple. Course condition was pretty good, although the greens could use some work - grass was patchy in several spots. Course layout provided plenty of challenge, with multiple water features to play over. Mix of long vs. short holes was nice. In-cart GPS system gave good views for each hole. Consistent with comments others have left, we had some difficulty finding our way from the green to the next tee on a couple of holes. The GPS system helped some, but also gave confusing messages. I’d like to see more simple old school signs - “12th tee this way ->”. Staff was friendly and helpful. Absolutely would play this course again - overall a good value.
