Gold Course, Hole 8
180 yard par 3. From the elevated tee on number 8, you get a panoramic view of the golf course and the surrounding countryside – you can even see the wooded bluffs that line the Mississippi in neighboring Dubuque. Don’t let the view distract you from the matter at hand: playing a challenging downhill par 3. The green rests on relatively flat area about half way down the hill. Sand traps on both sides of the green perform a dual role guarding the narrow green and keeping your ball from running down the hill into the trees if you miss the green.
