Overall Rating:

Comments: Shoal Creek is a great semi-private course in North Kansas City/Liberty and has amassed numerous honors and awards. The fairways are beautiful, lush and fairly wide. If you happen to spray your ball into the rough, it is not terribly punitive. The greens are large with some complexity but not crazy. It is a "must play" whether you belong to a private club or play public. It is worth a longer drive to play this course. I had the great fortune to play with longtime friend BJ Sullivan and 10 of his golf buddies. The average age of the group was close to 80 as was their scores (and the number of sarcastic remarks per minute). These boys can flat out play some golf. It was quite an enjoyable morning of golf.
