Correct name is Shoal Creek. Period. No "Golf and Country Club", no "Country Club". Just Shoal Creek. Golf staff is excellent, and caddies are knowledgeable. It is a walking course that seems to play downhill for all 18 holes. Recent revovations after 2012 Regions Tradition to holes 15 and 16 are excellent.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area

One of Nicklaus' gems in terms of design. Hosts the Regions Tradition, a major on the Champions Tour. Gets rave reviews from the players. No blind shots, can always see landing area off tee and green visible from fairway.
