JOHN SHIPPEN – AMERICA'S
FIRST GOLF PROFESSIONAL
John Matthew Shippen, Jr. was an African American/Native American golfer who competed in several early U.S. Opens.

PLAY THE COURSE THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE PLAYED
The historic Temple Terrace Golf course, designed by renowned course architect Tom Bendelow, remains true to its original design. Here’s your chance to play it with authentic era clubs and balls, and enjoy it as course pro and US Open champion “Long” Jim Barnes would have in the 1920s.
Help play a significant role in the future of Temple Terrace like these early civic leaders.
