Overall a great layout and fun to play, could have been in better condition but it’s been a tough year for golf courses so grace there. Pace of play was very slow and they call you in off the course well before dark not allowing the opportunity to finish the last couple holes if you’re cutting it close. We teed off in plenty of time to finish before dark, but due to a 5 hour round that was not possible. Need to do a better job marshaling the course to push slow groups along or break them up.

Hats off!

Even with the recent aeration this course is always a pleasure to play. Yes, the putts rolled slower than usual, but let me tell you Shoal has some of the nicest fairways you’ll find in the KC area. Great job guys!

Good Course

Shoal Creek is considered one of the better golf courses in the Kansas City area. However, given the conditions, it is too pricey. They charge $74 for the Saturday morning round when in reality, the corse was more like a $60 course. The fairways on several holes were very stressed and worn. I wouldn’t expect to see that for a $74 course.

Nice Track to Play

Shoal Creek is a great course. Some of the fairways were a little stressed and we’re being re-seeded. The course offers some challenging holes, but fair. The course is better than most in the immediate area, but $74 is a little on the unreasonable side. A more reasonable cost would be $60.

Great course, light on amenities

Great layout and condition, well worth the trip to play. Clubhouse has minimal amenities (locker room, restaurant) to support guests.
