Hole 8 is a par 4 that requires immense accuracy as a tee shot too far to the left can land you in heavy rough or thick trees. The second shot requires less club as you play downhill, but be careful not to get above the hole.
On this hole, left is out-of-bounds, and to the right there are large trees which tighten the landing area about 190 yards off the tee. The downhill second shot is all carry, so make sure not to miss the left-veering green.
