Hole Description

Hole01

Hole 1 is a mid-length 4 that is a nice starting hole but not extremely difficult. Most would agree, it’s one of the easiest holes on the course. The fairway is fairly narrow and the green is nestled behind two medium sized bunkers.

Hole02

The second hole is a slight dog-leg right and is one of only three holes where the green cannot be seen from the tee. This hole is a more challenging test than the first, it nevertheless offers birdie opportunities for two exceptionally well-placed shots.

Hole03

The par 5 third hole is relatively straight away to the eye, although it is played in a “Z” because strategically placed bunkers. This hole will yield a lot of birdies, but they will have to be earned.

Hole04
This hole is one of the finest holes to be found on any golf course in the nation! There are no hazards on the hole, but it plays one of the most difficult holes on the course. The green is the largest on the course – almost 10,000 square feet in size. This solid par 4 will produce more bogies than pars
Hole05

One of the nicest par 3’s you will ever play. This hole plays downhill, as do many at Shoal Creek. A small pond, front left of the green, adds to the challenge, as does the large bunker flanking the entire right side protecting the most difficult of all hole locations-back right of the green.

Hole06
The par 5 work of art, which Jack Nicklaus indicates is one of the best he has ever designed, meanders through the fairway and must be negotiated twice before reaching the green. Once you reach the green, you will find that there are numerous subtle undulations that prove interesting.
Hole07
A strong par 4 which, while straight-away, is well bunkered in the landing area and both sides of the green. The green is almost 50 yards deep and will vary by as many as 3 clubs depending on the hole location
Hole08
This short par 3 plays slightly downhill to a very challenging little green. The green is guarded by bunkers and water on all sides. This is a wonderful par 3 with risks and rewards involved.
Hole09

This dog-leg left par 4 provides one of the top challenges on the golf course and is our most difficult. The wind is always a factor off the tee shot as well as the second shot. This very interesting green provides the players with tantalizing opportunities for that much needed par or birdie.
