Hole 10 at Shoal Creek Golf Club in Birmingham, Alabama 35242 is a 430 yard par 4 from the Championship tees. It has a slight dogleg left and requires an accurate tee shot to set up your approach. The fairway width of 39 yards provides some room off the tee but with two greenside bunkers representing 2% of total area, accuracy is key. From the Pro Tees it's 420 yards, Men's 400 yards, Women's 340 yards and Senior Women 310 yards; all playing as Par 4s.

In summer months temperatures can reach into the mid-90s with high humidity which will affect ball flight distance so club selection should be adjusted accordingly. In winter months temperatures can dip into the 30s so expect less roll on shots hit downwind or downhill due to colder air density and hard ground conditions respectively. With a driver carry of 217 yards, 7 iron 140 yards and pitching wedge 120 you'll need to take into account elevation changes when making club selections for both your tee shot and approach shots.

Club Recommendations

1. Make sure to adjust your club selection based on the temperature and humidity, as these will affect ball flight distance.

2. Consider using a hybrid or fairway wood off the tee if you are not confident with your driver accuracy due to the two greenside bunkers representing 2% of total area.

3. Take into account elevation changes when making club selections for both your tee shot and approach shots, as this will affect how far each club carries in different conditions.

4. Aim slightly right of center off the tee to give yourself more room for an accurate approach shot into the green, avoiding any potential hazards around it.

5. Utilize practice swings before each shot to get a feel for how much power is needed depending on temperature and wind conditions that day
