Hole 15 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a par 4, measuring 425 yards from the championship tees. It has a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 34 yards. The green area measures 8782 sq ft and there are 3 bunkers on the green, accounting for 3% of total bunker count on this hole.

This hole plays slightly longer than average in all four seasons due to altitude and temperature changes across Birmingham, Alabama 35242. In winter months you may want to consider adding an extra club off the tee as colder temperatures can reduce carry distance by up to 10%. During summer months, wind should also be taken into account when selecting your club off the tee as it can add or subtract yardage depending on its direction and strength.

The best strategy here is to hit your driver off the tee down the center of the fairway towards one side of the dogleg where you will have more room for error if you miss it slightly right or left. A good drive will leave you with around 140-160 yards into this large green so make sure to select a club that gives you enough distance but won't go too far over either edge of this wide putting surface which is guarded by three greenside bunkers - two short right and one long left - making accuracy key in order not to find yourself in any sand traps!

Club Recommendations

Finally, take note of the green's size and shape when making your approach shot. The 8782 sq ft putting surface is relatively flat with only a few subtle breaks so if you can get yourself in the right spot on the fairway then you should be able to give yourself some good birdie opportunities!
