The Shoals - Schoolmaster
The Schoolmaster (named for President Woodrow Wilson who was responsible for getting Wilson Dam built on the Tennessee River and is known as "The Schoolmaster of Politics"), is more traditional golf with every hole in keeping with the natural topography along the Tennessee River. The course is heavily wooded, rolling, and spectacular while playing along the bluffs above the river. The beauty and challenge of the 18th hole playing along the high bluffs may be the signature hole, but the 2nd hole with sloping fairway and waterfall is a great hole and golfer favorite as well.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, AL Golf Vacations by Golf Zoo
When Golf Digest selected Alabama the 3rd best state for golf value a couple of years ago, it became obvious that the state was a major player on the golf scene. Due in part to the success of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Alabama finds itself at the pinnacle of the golfing world. Golf course architect Robert Trent Jones saw the group of public courses he designed in Alabama as his version of Michelangelo's masterful artwork in the Sistine Chapel. The 21 courses are now called the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, a total of 378 holes at eight locations across the state.
