Lake Sweetwater Municipal Golf Course

22125 FM 1856
Sweetwater, TX 79556



Lake Sweetwater was constructed in 1929 and 1930 at a cost of about $450,000 [that would be 5.75 million in today’s dollars] near the town of Sweetwater, Texas in northeastern Nolan County by damming Bitter Creek.  Nearby lookouts, clubhouse, and golf course were built later by 200 Civilian Conservation Corps workers. In 1934 the lake area below the dam had an open amphitheater, two fish hatcheries, and a baseball field. Above the dam was a rock clubhouse, a boat pier, a nine-hole golf course, and a suspension footbridge over the lake. Around the water's edge were a fishing pier, several lookout houses, picnic units, camping areas, gravel walkways, and rock bridges.  Later a paved road was built around the lake.
