Red Course, Hole 8
207 yard par 3. A long par three, number 8 runs along the top of the ridge that ends with the green. The terrain drops away from the green in both directions with trees on the left and trees and bunkers (including trees in a bunker) on the right. The long green slopes toward the tee and broadens toward the back.
Tips from the Pro
Hole 8 is the toughest hole on the Red course. It’s a long hole with trouble all around. The bunkers on the right will keep your ball from going out of bounds, but are challenging to extricate yourself from. Hitting over trees in the bunkers presents an especially tricky recovery shot. The left side of the fairway runs toward the rough. A chip shot from here is made difficult by the green that slopes toward you. The long green makes a two putt no “gimmee” if you are far from the pin.
