Tour : Hole 8


Dogleg right. There is a certain risk and reward with the tee shot. A reserved tee shot to the left half will open up the green for an approach with a long iron. A bolder line down the middle/right will shorten the hole substantially leaving a short iron in but too far right or short will leave you well and truly blocked out. The green is large with big slopes to manage.

The grassy depression in the front of the green poses a special challenge for your short game.


For the longer hitters, driver, or possibly a fairway wood aimed at the 2nd tee will put you in the best position. For the shorter hitters, a drive left of centre will allow a clear shot in. On your approach, be mindful of the swale short left of the green as this can leave a tough and down.
