SANTA FE LAKE
SANTA FE LAKE. Santa Fe Lake, popularly known as Country Club Lake, is on Kildoogan Creek 1½ miles south of the Fisher county line and two miles northeast of downtown Sweetwater in the Brazos River Basin in north central Nolan County (at 32°30' N, 100°23' W). The lake was originally owned by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway for which it is probably named. The earthfill Sweetwater Country Club Lake Dam was completed in 1912; the dam is thirty-two feet high and 1,810 feet in length (including a 425-foot spillway) and has a maximum impoundment volume of 1,932 acre-feet. The dam and lake are owned by Sweetwater Country Club, Inc., and were developed for irrigation and recreational purposes.
