Hole 18 at Shoal Creek Golf Club in Birmingham, Alabama is a par 4 that plays to 450 yards from the Championship tees and 405 yards from the Senior Men's tees. It features a slight dogleg left with an approx fairway width of 34 yards and 5 bunkers around the green. The green area measures 10502 sq ft with 3% of it covered by greenside bunkers.

This hole can be tricky due to its length and dogleg shape, but players should take advantage of this opportunity for birdie or even eagle if they are able to manage their tee shot properly. Depending on wind conditions, golfers may want to consider hitting driver off the tee as long as they avoid any hazards along the way. If there is significant wind, you may want to play more conservatively off the tee by using a hybrid or iron depending on your distance preference and accuracy level.
