Hole 14 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a par 4, measuring 390 yards from the Championship tees. It has a slight dogleg right and features 6 bunkers on the fairway, as well as 3% of greenside bunkers. The approximate width of the fairway is 34 yards wide so accuracy off the tee will be important to set up your approach shot.

In terms of club selection for your tee shot, you may want to consider using a driver depending on what type of golfer you are and how far you hit it; however, if you're not confident in your ability to stay within that 34-yard window then an iron or hybrid might be better suited here. For example, if you typically hit a 7 iron 140 yards and pitching wedge 120 yards off the tee then those clubs could work nicely here as well.

The green area measures 7185 sq ft with some undulation throughout so being precise with your approach shot will pay dividends when trying to make birdies or pars on this hole. Local weather conditions can also have an impact here due to potential changes in altitude, temperature & wind across all four seasons - take these into consideration when deciding which club(s) should be used for both tee shots and approaches into this green!

Club Recommendations

Finally, the bunkers on this hole should be taken into consideration when plotting your strategy. Aiming to avoid them is ideal but if you find yourself in one then take a deep breath and focus on getting out safely with as little damage as possible. The greenside bunkers are especially tricky so make sure to assess all angles before choosing which club will get you closest to the pin!
