Hole 8

Par 4

 

The fairway is guarded by bunkers on the right hand side, trees and mounds to the left. The best option for this short hole is to place your ball in the fairway between 100-125m from the centre of the green. For some players a driver is not required from this tee.


Playing into the prevailing wind, the second shot requires careful attention. The green is long and narrow. It is protected by mounds on the left (they can sometimes assist, but do not be left of them, this is where elephants go to die!) The right side is the better miss, although things aren’t straight forward from here. Going long is not an option here.

Putting is never easy here. The green slopes from the middle/back left section to the front right.

 

Good distance control into this green is essential for a good score.
