Hole 8 Go to 7

No. 8

374 Yards
Par 4

 

The last of the short par 4s under 400 yards. This uphill dogleg left will require two precise shots to have a chance at birdie. The tee shot should be shaped from right to left to avoid the bunkers guarding the right side of the fairway. Too much hook will result in the trees on the left coming into play. The second shot, while short, places a premium on controlling the spin and trajectory of the shot. Three putts are not uncommon on this green. If a player finds himself in one of the eight greenside bunkers, the prospects for par are slim.
