Hole 8 requires an accurate shot from the tee. The box is set well back and elevated from the surroundings, with intimidating trees to spoil an otherwise good drive if you borrow too much from either side. You'll need to carry a hidden valley to make the fairway or it will be a tough shot to reach the green in two.
Once you're past the trees, the fairway is really quite generous. A draw is the the preferred play to direct you down this slight dogleg left, yet there is fair room for a controlled fade.
The green has a prominent slope from back to front. The pin can be placed in some very treacherous positions, luring the bold or the foolish to a third shot from one of the deep sand bunkers. Center of the green is always a good choice here.
