Hole 4 at Shoal Creek Golf Club is a long par 4 that plays 480 yards from the championship tees. It features a slight dogleg left and requires an accurate tee shot to set up an approach shot into the green. The fairway width of 36 yards provides plenty of room for error, but errant shots may end up in one of the numerous bunkers on either side of the hole. From the championship tees, golfers will need two well-placed shots with their driver and mid-iron in order to reach this long par 4 in regulation.

The green has no bunkers surrounding it, so players can be aggressive with their second shot as they look to stick close to pin high or below it depending on pin placement. However, local weather conditions should be taken into account when strategizing your approach; during summer months temperatures tend to get hotter which affects ball flight distance while windy days could cause misdirection off course if not accounted for properly. In general, golfers hitting around 217 yards with their driver and 140 yards with a 7 iron should have enough club selection options available for both tee shots and approaches respectively.
