Pros: I think this is a great course. Like most have said there is a nice mix of long and short holes. Very well placed tees and baskets to get the most use out of the mature trees on the land. I would highly recommend this course to any body. Pros could even like this course because they can work on different shots from huge hyzer bombs, to rollers, and so on. Also the course is well taken care of as well.
Cons: I have no cons of the course. As for texas during the summer this place is very hot. Yes the wind might be blowing but it does nothing for you. Bring water better yet bring a golf umbrella for shade it gets hot. Lot of trees on the back nine help add some shade.
Other Thoughts: Since I haven't been there in several years there wasnt a water park located here. However still should be a great place to play some golf. Awesome tee pads, nice large creek when water is in it. Worth the stop to check it out.

Pros: The distance variety on this course is very impressive with ranges from 150' up to the mid 800's. There are alot of par 4's.

There are nice long concrete tee pads on every hole.

There is a sign at EVERY tee with hole #, distance, and par. There is also a bulletin board at the start with a large map of the course.

Both pro and amatuer tees increases the already high variety of shots and distances. The biggest of arms will be challenged and the wimpiest will make at least one birdie (my wife made three).

The John Houck design means that every hole is unique and challenging. Even though it is flat and lightly wooded, the use of a winding creek, distance, and some well placed trees makes this an excellent course.
Cons: There's not much shade so mid-day play in the summer will be tough.

If you don't land in the fairway you may have to deal with thorny bushes and trees.

This course doesn't have quite as much scenic beauty, with mature trees and hilly terrain, as Lion's Park.
Other Thoughts: I actually slightly prefer this course to Lion's Park. The residents of temple are lucky to have such great courses.
