The Shoals is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Fighting Joe Course and the Schoolmaster Course, which opened in 2004 and 2005 respectively.

Lying between the Wheeler and Wilson dams on the Tennessee River, these courses were named after two historical figures, General Joseph "Fighting Joe" Wheeler and President Woodrow Wilson Wheeler and offer two distinct challenges that are sure to thrill golfers touring the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail while on a golf holiday in the Deep South.
