Hole 13 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a challenging par 3 that plays 215 yards from the championship tees, 185 yards from the pro tees, 170 yards from the senior men's tees, 150 yards from the men's tees and 110 yards for senior women. The green has an area of 7554 sq ft with two bunkers accounting for 15% of its total surface area. This hole can be tricky to hit due to varying winds across all four seasons in Birmingham. In summer months, temperatures are hot and humid which can affect ball flight conditions; while winter months may bring colder temperatures that could lead to more carry distance on shots. A well-placed tee shot will help you take advantage of this hole’s potential birdie opportunity as long as you avoid any greenside bunkers or water hazards. With a driver that goes 217 yards off the tee and a 7 iron going 140-150 yards with your approach, it should be possible to reach this green in regulation if your club selection is correct and you execute properly!

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right tee box for your skill level to optimize distance and accuracy off the tee.

2. Avoid playing too aggressively by keeping your driver in the bag, as a well-placed 7 iron can still get you close enough to this green in regulation with proper club selection and execution.

3. Beware of wind conditions that may affect ball flight at different times of year; adjust accordingly!

4. Be aware of greenside bunkers and water hazards that could lead to penalty strokes if not avoided properly.

5. Take advantage of this hole’s potential birdie opportunity by making sure you hit it close enough with your approach shot so you can take two putts or less for par/birdie!
