Overview Shoal Creek
Hall Thompson enlisted a young Jack Nicklaus to deliver on his vision for a timeless classic that would delight generations of club members while also testing the best players in the world.
Shoal Creek was an instant classic when it opened in 1977 drawing the PGA Championship just seven years later—and it remains one of America’s best courses.
While the course is the focus of these championships’ competitors, the hub of the club’s everyday life is the main clubhouse, a replica of the Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg, Virginia, down to the coat of arms above the front door. It is flanked by a town hall, golf shop and four guest cottages, all arranged around a common lawn.
