Hole 8

eigth hole panorama

The 8th hole is a 378 metre Par 4.  The wind has a big influence on the shot a player has to take on the tee; as it is not unknown to have a 25 knot northerly in your face, or a 25 knot southerly at your back.  Big hitters can make the hill and get the benefit of a long roll on the other side towards the hole, leaving a short iron in.   A player has to make sure they are straight as there is a fairway bunker on the right about 175 metres out.  Bigger hitters who are amiss can end up in the dam which is 40 metres past the fairway bunker on the right. 

Trees align both sides of the fairway and the green is an inverted saucer - it is not uncommon to see a players shot roll off the back or front of this slick green which has subtle swales and bunkers on both sides.  Avoid hitting past the green as you are almost guaranteed that you will not find your ball.
