From an elevated tee, the eighth hole may entice a big swing with the driver to take advantage of the downhill-sloping fairway. This may be fraught with danger however with the hazard metres to the right of the fairway claiming a number of balls. The lie of the land also slopes towards this hazard so the best place to land a tee shot is left of centre. A shot aimed too far left may find the trees separating the seventh and eighth fairways. The green features bunkering short-right and left of putting surface. Mounding around all sides of the green makes an accurate approach shot quite valuable. Once on the green, judging the subtle breaks and deceptive speed will be the key.
