Hole 8
Par 5 | 351 – 515 Yards

About this hole

The last par 5 on the front nine weaves through a series of massive bur oaks bordering both sides of the hole along with wetlands and water. The tee shot must negotiate a grass hollow guarding the right side of the first landing area.

A fairway bunker slightly offset from the center of the second landing area blocks the more direct route to the green. If challenged, the green opens up to an approach of any length from the left side. Playing along the left keeps the wetlands at bay along that same side.

Playing tip

The tee shot must negotiate a grass hollow guarding the right side of the first landing area. Those who carry the hollow will be rewarded with a direct second shot to a bunker-less green. Although the angle into the green from the right side is the preferred route, a ridge that begins about 15 yards out in the fairway bisects the landing area on that side before terminating inside the putting surface. Any approach leaking to the right may hit the right side of the ridge and tumble further away from the center of the fairway.
