Great Course

I pass 3 courses to include the one here on Post that I live by on Fort Hood because this course is very challenging, very well maintained, and the entire staff is second to none! The MVP on staff is Steve, you simply won't find a nicer guy who is willing to help you out and get a staff member to assist. The cafe prices are so fair let alone taste great! I wish I could play more there and I highly recommend people to play here!

Fast, Smooth Greens

The greens were redressed this past summer/fall. They are so smooth...and quick. We love this course now! There are several holes with fairly challenging layouts - that makes the course fun to play. The course sits low and thus holds water. We have had a lot of rain lately, so there are several places where casual water sits. A few bunkers with water.
Overall, I really like this course.

Quirky little track

The tee boxes are rough, there’s no sugarcoating that. A few of them were so hard you’d need a mallet for driving tent stakes to get a peg in the ground. There are A LOT of water hazards on this course, with some seriously challenging forced carriers made considerably more difficult when the wind blows (which it seems to do here quite often). They allow people to fish on the course which seemed a little odd the first time I played here but was no trouble either time I’ve played.
Twilight rates start at 2pm. I played 18 with a cart for less than $20 on a Saturday- that’s a tough deal to beat.

Decent condition, rude staff.

Title says it all. The attendant in the proshop was not friendly and basically rude. I just asked for range balls and he laughed and said, "It's raining. I think the range is closed." This isn't the first time staff has been rude to me here. I'm considering not coming back. The course was fine for it being the end of winter.

Improved greens

In the past I avoided this course, but they replaced the greens and that drastically improved the experience. Staff was great. Still a few holes with drainage issues, number 18 was really wet. Good value for the cost.

Surprised

I’ve heard some negative reviews on Sammons but it was a hot deal so I went for it. Great choice! Super challenging layout with water on 75% of the holes. Not a long hitters course though so I had to go through the bag a lot more than the typical driver/ 3 wood off the tee. Very firm greens were hard to hold a shot at times but rolled nicely. Had a blast and will definitely be back.

Improvements

Improvements: A year ago the greens were unplayable, The fairways for marginal and the tea boxes were horrible. Reconstruction of the grains make them wonderful and the fairways are much improved. Tee boxes still need some help

Improvements look good

Like the new layout. New greens look great, the rest of the course is currently being worked on or is in need of a good clean up. Pace of play wasn’t bad on the first 9 but really slowed down on the back. Good course for the money, would just like to see it cleaned up a bit.

Cool layout

The course is a cool layout in the middle of Temple. The greens were recently maintained and all turned brown. They were ok to play on but cosmetically they were bad.
They did let us play for roughly half price, so they did recognize the issue.
I would play there again!

Looking forward to improvements

I live in the area and have played many times. It can be fun, but greens are horrible. Course is not well maintained. Evidently they are putting money into it now, I usually walk but did notice new golf carts. The course is being redone in May 2018 I think, and it drastically needs it. It will be interesting to see how it comes out. I can't see this course surviving without improvements.

Lots of water

Fun challenging course with water present on 16 holes. A short course by modern standards but accuracy is still a premium.Most greens are in bad shape.A value non the less.
