Course Overview

Opening on November 1, 1977, Shoal Creek hosted three U.S. Open Champions to compete in the inaugural ceremonial round: three-time Open Champion Nicklaus, 1976 Open Champion Jerry Pate and 1977 Open Champion Hubert Green. When it was all said and done, Pate edged Nicklaus by two strokes, and the crowd left impressed with both the design of the course and the play of the three champions. Shoal Creek would go on to host a number of historical events, including the 1984 PGA Championship, won by a determined and focused Lee Trevino. In 1990, the PGA Championship returned, and this time Wayne Grady was able to stave off runner-up Fred Couples for the win. Shoal Creek has hosted a number of other important events as well, including the 1986 U.S. Amateur Championship. In 1994, a young golfer named Tiger Woods helped Stanford win Jerry Pate's National Intercollegiate with a tournament-best individual score of 206. Having hosted some of the greatest legends ever to play the game, Shoal Creek remains one of the most attractive golf courses in the country.
