Soon the greens of Shoal Creek will play host to players on the Champions Tour at the 2013 Regions Tradition.

But before they can tee off take a look at the history behind the Tradition’s home.

“Basically Shoal Creek brought the first major golf tournament to Alabama and we are very proud of that fact.” – Mike Thompson, President Shoal Creek Golf Course

From the help of Jack Nicklaus, to the connection to colonial Williamsburg, Shoal Creek is steeped in history.

Mike Thompson spoke with CBS42 on just how much care was put into putting together this golf course.
