Hole Guide:

A scoring opportunity as the green is reachable in two, although an accurate drive is crucial. There is no room for error as the green can be obscured by trees on the left-hand side and an accurate drive is needed to avoid the right side.

The green has no bunkers but is protected by severe mounding, meaning a two-shot strategy can sometimes be a mistake. There is a fine line on the 8th between bogey and birdie. Bruce Devlin holed his second shot here in 1967 for an albatross.
