Great Round

Golfed here with my Uncle and Nephew yesterday and had a great round. Lots of bunkers at this course, which I knew before hand as I have played here a few times. Greens were very fast, fairways are looking pretty good other than a few minor areas where its in repair. They were doing a cart path gate deal that was new to me, enter the gates, stay on fairway, exit at gates near the end of fairway. My only minor gripe is that the people outside near the carts were grumpy old men that seemed pretty stuck up. They wanted nothing to do with small talk or mild banter and just wanted us to leave it seemed, just not very friendly. Either way, was an excellent round and we had a great time!

Great Course

It’s a great course. The staff they hire is not particularly good. But, the course is still worth it.

Top course

Excellent layout. Pace of play was slow due to fivesome and foursomes ahead with little to no course Marshall attention. Course condition was good. Geeens were a little bumpy due to recent arieation. Overal very good course

A great public course option in Kansas City

if you're looking for a sold play in the Kansas City area, you can't go wrong with Shoal Creek. With six sets of tees, which can play as long as 7,011, it's a great test for every level of golfer. The course has a great variety of holes, is in above average shape, and there are no homes that come into play. Best of all, no two holes are alike. Greens are also interesting and in great shape.
