Really enjoyed my first time on this course. I look forward to playing again when the grass and rough are in full season. Sand traps are rough right now as with any course this time of year. Just stay out of them and your good.

too bad the greens were punched but a great layout nonetheless!
Newer style golf course with lots of long rides between greens and tees, got some houses around but many are out of the way so it doesn't make you feel like you are swinging in a telephone booth. Front 9 is pretty wide open and lets you swing away but pay close attention to the gps on the cart as water that you cannot see comes into play on a few holes, Back 9 winds through the Rocky River on holes 10,11, and 14 and is very scenic. Its a shame the greens were in rough shape as they were aerated probably only a week ago but definitely worth the trip and would definitely make the trip out to play Shale Creek again when the greens are right.

Great condition for this time of year
1st time playing the course and my mistake in waiting to the end of the season. The course was in very good condition. Tee boxes were ok, greens were in great shape and fairways were cut and well maintained. The only problems we encountered was the bunkers, which were very hard and the front nine greens had just been aerated, which made putting difficult at times. Will be back next year!

This is a great golf course
The course conditions were excellent, but challenging, the staff was helpful and made certain our group understood the best way to play the course. The greens rolled true and were pleasantly quick. If you can control your ball you'll enjoy this course.

Great Condition for October
I was the first tee time and the starter let me go off 10 minutes early, which was a big help on cart path only at the start. The GPS sent a message on the 2nd hole that the cart path restrictions were lifted except for the Par 3's and one other hole. The course was in it's usual championship conditions and with the exception of one green was putting true and fast. The staff was great and if not for the cost, I would play there more often.

Excellent and challenging course with very friendly staff.
Definitely a must play course. Links golf, but a challenging layout. When the wind is blowing good, like my round a few days ago, the British Open has nothing on Shale Creek (ok, except for the ocean). The course is in great shape, and Rob M. and the rest of the staff are always so friendly. It's definitely a country club feel, without being a country club. Love playing at Shale Creek.

Very challenging when not in fairway
Good course with thick rough. Must stay in the fairway or be very good at getting out of trouble to score well. Only downside to the course is the proximity of the housing development.
