Rain-Out .............can't wait to return/replay
First, I was surprised the carts were allowed off their paths; this area has experienced inordinate amount of rainfall over past week. The course was wet, but more playable than most others in the area. Greens were rolling nicely, although players have to learn how to properly repair ball-marks ..........and not just their own. Outstanding deal on price for Hot Deal Spec, but disappointed we could not finish the round, as we got poured on by hole #12. We could not wait out the rain stoppage or play w/rivers running on greens & fairways. I can't wait to return & replay; also disappointed I can't match my score on that front 9 of even par 36.

Beautiful course, challenging but playable
I'm a duffer, but I found the course both beautiful and fairly challenging. They gave out free bottled water, which was a nice touch. Range was free along with a round of golf. Course was well maintained. Greens were in good shape and reasonably fast. I'm not sure I'd play for regular price (close to $70) but at $41 a pop it was an excellent value. Quality wise, I'd consider it slightly better than Mallard Creek, my other favorite NEO course.

It was a great day for golf on an excellent course.
The course was in great shape and enjoyed the round.

Very challenging and manicured course. You get to use every club in your bag. Greens are hard and speeds varied from hole to hole.
Practice range with free golf balls was a plus.
Only disappointment was food service - only hot dogs at turn.
You have to go in Granite Grill for sandwiches. You would be better to bring your own

Fun course to play
Great course to play with some challenging holes. Have to use strategy.

Sunday afternoon, real hot out. No water on the course(drinking fountains off, it's May 10th???). The snack bar at the turn, to get something to drink was closed. HAA? it's Sunday afternoon. Course is great amenities not good.

Pricey but worth it
Shale Creek is really a beautiful layout, and impeccably maintained as well. We played in the morning right after a good rain, course drains exceptionally well so no mud, and greens were still quite fast. The only complaint I could have is the price, as it is more expensive than other courses in the area, but at the same time, you get what you pay for.
