Just south of Birmingham, Alabama, in the foothills of the Appalachians, Double Oak Mountain stands as a reminder that even the foothills deserve the title of mountain. Double Oak Mountain slopes down into the Dunnavant Valley where you will find a creek that flows to the north.
Shoal Creek was rediscovered in 1977. We say rediscovered because this is at least the second time this particular place has been chosen for its beauty, natural resources and prime location at the base of the mountain. Early Native Americans lived and hunted near the banks of the namesake creek that runs the length of the over 1,500 acres.
Today, Shoal Creek is a premier, idyllic community set around an equally premier golf course, host of the U.S. Women’s Open Championship in 2018. Our vibrant and diverse community of residents enjoy a peaceful, secure setting in nature with all the modern luxuries we have to offer.
Our amenities include: a gated community with armed security staff 24/7/365; private club featuring dining, lodging, pool recreation and internationally renowned, Jack Nicklaus designed golf course with state of the art teaching facility; high-speed fiber optic network; stocked fishing lakes and streams to fish, kayak, and canoe; 30 stall equestrian facility with indoor and outdoor arenas and access to riding trails; densely forested lots with natural privacy.
With 1,000 densely forested acres including 400 acres of undisturbed ridgeline, the unspoiled beauty is often not what brings people here but what keeps them here. Getting to your favorite fishing spot in two minutes flat will do that. Walking in the woods hearing nothing but leaves crunching under your feet will do that, too. There are many lots and acreage available for purchase. Bring your builder to build your own custom home, whether a cottage, an estate, or something in between for your forever home. Or let us help you find the perfect home already here, waiting on you to move in.
Come explore Shoal Creek. It’s full of possibilities.
