Hole 8 - 'Eye of the Needle'
Par 4 (373, 313, 259, 245 Metres, Stroke 9)
Stand on the tee here and choose accuracy over aggression. Keep the Blinkers on.
How to Play this Hole
I often refer to attitude when addressing how to play. The eighth hole is beautifully placed between two dunescapes. It is, however, the tightest driving hole on the course. The good news is that it is not that long. So, put the driver away put the 3-wood away take out a rescue wood or long iron and put your ball in play. This is not a Hero hole and it has achieved the stroke rating of 9 simply because too many people have been too aggressive. Save you big drive for the 9th as you will need it there!
