Summary:

The Temple Terrace Golf Course is locally significant under Criterion A in the area of Community
Planning & Development and Entertainment/Recreation for its association with the early development and
promotion of Temple Terrace Estates as a Florida country club community in 1921, and for its association with
the transformation of the City of Temple Terrace into a middle-class suburban community in the Postwar era
and the 1950s. Also under Criterion A, the Temple Terrace Golf Course is associated with the beginnings of
professional golf in Florida, and the democratization of the sport in the 1930s. The Temple Terrace Golf
Course also is locally significant under Criterion C in the area of Landscape Architecture as an excellent
surviving example of the work of a returning nines course design by noted golf course architect Tom Bendelow,
and the integration of the course into a residential development designed by planner and architect George F.
Young.
