RTJ GOLF TRAIL AT MUSCLE SHOALS

MUSCLE SHOALS | 36 HOLES

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at The Shoals is home to two 18-hole championship courses and sits high above Wilson Lake on the Tennessee River.

The Fighting Joe course at The Shoals was the first Trail course to break 8,000 yards, measuring some 8,092 yards from the black tees. Travel + Leisure Golf named Fighting Joe one of the top new courses in 2004 for good reason. Long-hitters here will experience a test of champions, but from the correct tee box, all players will enjoy world-class golf.

The second course, the Schoolmaster (named for President Woodrow Wilson, who was responsible for getting Wilson Dam built and was also known as "The Schoolmaster" of politics), opened in 2005. It's hard to beat the beauty that the 18th hole holds on the high bluffs over the river, but the waterfall guarding the 2nd green sure comes close.

The Couples Championship is held at The Shoals each September and is limited to the first 56 teams.

FIGHTING JOE Course Tour

Bordered by dunes-like mounds and tall grasses, Fighting Joe, with wide fairways, large and beautifully maintained bent grass greens, can play long, really long if you play the wrong set of tees, but this course is simply good, straightforward golf. You can see where you're going. The question is...can you get there?

SCHOOLMASTER Course Tour

The tree-lined Schoolmaster is a shotmaker's golf course with narrower fairways, demanding approaches to well-protected bent grass greens, and still a length of nearly 8,000 yards! Make sure you've done your homework well, for the Schoolmaster will certainly test all of your skills.
