Hole 12 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a 520-yard par 4 from the championship tees. It is rated as the second most difficult hole on the course, with an overall handicap of 2. The fairway has a slight dogleg right and is 34 yards wide, so accuracy off the tee will be key for players looking to set up their approach shot. For those playing from Pro, Men's or Senior Women's tees, you'll have shorter distances but still need to hit your tee shot accurately in order to set up your approach shot. From all other tees, this hole should play very manageable due to its length and lack of hazards such as water or bunkers (only two bunkers total).

The green area measures 10471 sq ft and has 3% greenside bunker coverage which can come into play if you don't hit your approach shots with enough precision. Local weather conditions across each season should also be taken into consideration when strategizing for this hole; altitude could affect ball flight distance while temperature and wind may also influence club selection off both tee boxes and approaches shots alike. With an average driver distance of 217 yards, a 7 iron around 140 yards and pitching wedge about 120 yards long - these clubs would provide good options for hitting accurate shots towards this well bunkered green from any of the five available tees at Shoal Creek Golf Club’s Hole 12!
