Hole 2 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a 415-yard par 4 from the championship tees. It has a slight dogleg right and requires an accurate tee shot that avoids the greenside bunker on the right side of the fairway, which makes up 3% of the total green area. The fairway is approximately 30 yards wide, so accuracy off the tee is key to setting up your approach shot. Depending on weather conditions, players may choose to hit anything from driver to hybrid off the tee. During summer months when temperatures are higher and ball flight is increased, playing with a shorter club like an iron or hybrid can help keep you in play and avoid any trouble areas down range. As for your second shot into this large 10563 sq ft green area, depending on where you land in relation to pin placement will determine what club selection would be most beneficial - anywhere from 7 iron all way down to pitching wedge could be used here as distances vary greatly across seasons due to elevation changes and windy conditions throughout Birmingham's four distinct seasons (i.e., spring/summer being warmer with more ball flight; fall/winter being cooler with less).
