The founders of Mt. Laurel, a new urban style community in Shelby County Alabama, built the town on three core principles: love of community, appreciation for nature, and respect for the future. With a population of fewer than five hundred, Mt. Laurel promotes quality relationships between its residents, neighborhoods, and leaders. Quality vs. quantity is imperative to the residents of Mt. Laurel, who enjoy beautifully crafted areas, unique architecture, harmonious cohabitation with the natural environment, safety for families, and a lifestyle experience second to none.
Love of Community

What better mode of transportation could there be than the ability to rely on your own two feet? There’s an element of purposeful nostalgia built right into the unique area of Mt. Laurel. Instead of cars zipping by one another in fast-paced, on-the-go lifestyles, you’re invited to stroll through a neighborhood designed for quality of life.
Just a stones throw away is the Shoal Creek Club, an invitation-only private golf club in Shelby County, Alabama. Opened in 1977, the course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and is rated as the top golf course in the state. Shoal Creek is consistently listed as one of America’s top courses, most recently being ranked #50 in Golf Digest and #70 in Golf Week.
Shoal Creek has played host to numerous PGA, USGA, and NCAA events, including the PGA Championship in 1984 and 1990, the 1986 U.S. Amateur, and the 2008 U.S. Junior Amateur. Since 2011, it has hosted the Regions Tradition, a senior major. 2015 will be the last year for Shoal Creek to host the Regions Tradition, as it will be played at Greystone Golf and Country Club, located just a few minutes down the road. Shoal Creek is scheduled to host the U.S. Women’s Open in 2018. In 1994, a young golfer named Tiger Woods helped Stanford win Jerry Pate’s National Intercollegiate with a tournament-best individual score of 206. Having hosted some of the greatest legends ever to play the game, Shoal Creek remains one of the most attractive golf courses in the country built on a spectacular piece of property, 1,550 acres between Oak Mountain and Double Oak Mountain.
Respect for Nature
Trees are the most fundamental provider of the air we breathe, and necessary for clean, healthy living. The designers of Mt. Laurel understand and respect nature’s design, so construction is nested within the natural environment, with respect for it, without imposing upon it, without destroying the very trees we need to breathe! Mature landscaping, natural shade, and a variety of foliage make a relaxing stroll through town a breath-taking experience.
