A Place Where it is Always Tee Time:

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Muscle Shoals

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at The Shoals is home to two eighteen-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.
Bordered by dunes-like mounds and tall grass greens, you can easily see where you’re going (or trying to go) and expect simply good, straightforward golf.
The second course, The Schoolmaster (named for President Woodrow Wilson, who was responsible for getting Wilson Dam built and also known as “The Schoolmaster” of politics), opened in 2005. It’s hard to beat the beauty that the eighteenth hole holds on the high bluffs over the river, but the waterfall guarding the second green sure comes close. The Schoolmaster will certainly test all of your skills, but this tree-lined shot maker’s course with its narrower fairways and demanding approaches will challenge you. So, make sure you do your homework before hitting the Schoolmaster!
