Hole 8 at Torrey Pines Golf Club North Course is a challenging par 4 that plays 436 yards from the championship tees. It's slightly dogleg left with a slight elevation change and requires an accurate tee shot to set up your approach. The fairway width averages 31 yards, so you'll want to make sure you hit it straight and long off the tee in order to have a shorter approach into this well-protected green. There are three bunkers located on the right side of the hole, including one guarding the front of the green which makes for an intimidating second shot. Depending on wind conditions, you may be able to carry two of these bunkers if you're feeling brave - otherwise lay up short of them and play your third shot safely onto the green. This 8014 sq ft putting surface has just one bunker as 1% greenside protection but slopes severely from back-to-front, making club selection critical when attacking this pin position. With temperatures varying throughout each season in La Jolla, California 92037 golfers must take into account altitude changes along with temperature shifts and wind speed/direction when selecting their clubs off both tees for optimal scoring results here at Hole 8!

3. This 8014 sq ft putting surface has just one bunker as 1% greenside protection but slopes severely from back-to-front, making club selection critical when attacking this pin position.
