There was no staff to speak of. Waited for nearly 5 minutes for someone to show up in the pro shop. No ranger or starter. Just get in the cart and a free for all on the course. Slower than any round I have played this year. Greens were slower and bumpier than any other course I have played in the area. For what is supposed to be a higher end public facility it functions as a very low end course. You can tell there’s just no money left. I don’t know how they even keep the course open.

Shale creek is always in great shape. Weather your playing after a drought or in this case after tons of rain. The course always prevails. There was heavy rain most of he night and until 10:15. Our tee time was at 8:50. Everyone else left the course but we waited out the storm and tees off right before the rain quit. Within 3 holes most of the standing water was all gone and the putts were stick pretty quick even tho the greens were wet. I play this course 6-10 times a year at full price or close to it, this day we got a hot deal and I got the course for half price. We weren’t able to take advantage this time, but one of the best things about this course is that they have free range balls. I always get here 90 min early to hit the range, chip, and putt before my rounds. The single downfall this time around was that even at the turn they had nothing at all to snack on as far as even a hot dog. But all in all shale creek is always a great experience.

Course conditions were good and the greens were fast, but that's the only good thing I can say about this golf course. The layout winds through a residential neighborhood and you are liberally playing in someone's backyard on almost every hole. On one tee box a dog was about 40 feet away and barked at us continually. There is no scenic beauty and very few trees. I just don't understand why people like this course. Not my cup of tea. I won't be back and honestly wouldn't play it again if it were free. There are much better options in the area.

Drove out from Pa on a two day buddy trip and played at Shale Creek. We had perfect weather for mid October. The course was a little wet from some midweek rain but in Very nice shape. Very Friendly staff and a Great experience. We will be back when we return to the area.

Tee boxes, fairways, greens all in great shape. Most holes are not too difficult. Plenty of sand traps and rough to make it interesting, but, the fairways are wide enough to avoid trouble.

I found this gem on the Golf Now website. The course starts and ends on magnificent holes. All sixteen holes in between are filled with unique challenges. The community through which the course winds is surprisingly by no means a distraction. No two holes are alike and each hole was a joy to play. I have played golf in every state and many countries. I rank this one among the ones that I am eager to play again. 5 stars are not enough.
