Cool Layout, Fun Track

Took advantage of an afternoon of excellent weather to go walk 18 at Shoal Creek. I can say that I was thoroughly impressed with nearly every aspect of this course.

To start, the layout is excellent. Mixing short, narrow holes with long, wide ones makes this course a true test of all aspects of your game. Shoal Creek also gives a nice mixture of tree lined holes and more open, plains style holes.

The conditions were about as good as can be expected during this time of year. Everything was a bit soggy, but it didn't take away from the quality of play. The one drawback that I have about the conditions was that the greens seemed to be cut to inconsistent lengths on a few holes, but that was just a very slight takeaway.

Overall, I was very impressed with Shoal Creek. The excellent overall layout mixed with the wonderful conditions (and great weather) made for a great afternoon.

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.

Nice course - Always a great course to play!

Everyone was great! Booked on GolfNow. When checking in was asked if I was over 60. When I said 'yes', they gave me the senior rate was even better than the GolfNow rate!

Course had some issues in some of the fairways but, other than that, was in good shape and fun to play!

Great layout

Love this course. A little work to do on the fairways due to some rain damage but other than that it’s a fun and challenging course in pretty good condition for the most part. Maybe cut the rough a bit lower to make it easier to find a ball when you miss the fairway but overall this course is a good value. Will definitely come back
