Shoal Creek Golf Course
Shoal Creek Golf Course, which opened in the fall of 2001, has become one of the most talked about daily-fee golf and banquet facilities in the Kansas City area. This 6,950 yard par 71 golf property was sculpted by golf course architect Steve Wolfard and offers a truly unique golfing experience for players of varying skill levels. This extraordinary design features breathtaking elevation changes and expansive landing areas that meander through some of the most picturesque terrain in the Northland.
Robert H. Hodge Golf Course
A popular Northland course, Hodge Park Golf Course is located in a very scenic setting with heavily wooded, rolling terrain. The golf course is a par 71 and measures 6,223 yards. Its three lakes and one creek make seven of the holes on the course hazardous. Ten of the holes have some degree of "dogleg," which puts a premium on a golfer's accuracy and skill. The golf course is surrounded by rolling prairies and native buffalo grass. The natural habitat of this golf course is home to a variety of wildlife.
Shoal Creek Living History Museum
Shoal Creek Living History Museum is a village of more than 20 authentic 19th century buildings. The buildings date from 1807-1885 and include log cabins, clapboard structures and an antebellum brick mansion home. Covering more than 80 acres of beautiful rolling hills in Kansas City North's Hodge Park, the museum dedicates itself to bringing 19th century Missouri to life through special events, programs, tours and re-enactments.
With more than 1,000 acres, Hodge Park is the second largest park in Kansas City and is named for Dr. Robert Hodge, an internal medicine physician. Born in 1920, Dr. Hodge lived for many years north of the river on his family farm, which had been homesteaded by his great-great grandfather in 1833. Dr. Hodge served on the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners (1963-1975, Board President 1971-1975).
Property acquisition for a park north of the river in Clay County, Mo. near Shoal Creek began in 1965, with more property acquired at later times. The park was first called “Shoal Creek Park” until Dr. Hodge retired from the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners in 1975, at which time the park was named in his honor.
The Shoal Creek Living History Museum was developed in 1976 as “Heritage Village” and dedicated in 1977. The name was changed to “Shoal Creek, Missouri” in 1988 to honor the historic connection with Shoal Creek and in 2000 it became the “Shoal Creek Living History Museum”.
