Hole #8, Par 5 (#11 Handicap)
Hole 8 is a long but fairly straight Par 5. The tee shot has you hitting to a wide fairway with some undulating slopes. If you are lucky enough to have your tee shot land on a downward slope you could get a good enough kick to at least have the thought of going for the green in two, From the tee, there is trouble in the form of tall wild grass located to the far left and right side of the cart path along with a water hazard positioned to the far right behind #10 green. The second shot is also fairly open, but trees and bunkers come into play the closer you get to the green. Playing a safe second shot will put you from 150-100 yards out and take the trees out of play until your third. Attempting to go for the green in two could put both greenside bunkers into play and open up the possibility of hitting your third from the trees because the green complex slopes towards these areas. The putting green is guarded on the front left and right by bunkers with a small approach area splitting them. Hole 8 is one of the trickier putting surfaces. The front of the green has a steep false front making any Red (Front) pin a chore either putting or hitting an approach shot. The rest of the green slopes slightly downwards and to the left from the back to the middle section. Straight putts come at a premium on this putting surface.
