The tee shot on 8th comes out of a chute of pines toward a beautiful distant view. To find the best angle to the green, players must challenge a bunker and grassy hollow in the landing area on the right. The approach plays downhill to a green that is bounded tightly on the right side by steep drop-off to a small pond. Mounds and swales and a hardwood forest protect the left side.
A steep nose from the middle left of the green bisects the putting surface, with the higher level at the front and the lower back portion falling away into a tightly mown collection area. A back right pin presents the player with one of the most treacherous approaches on the course.
