Hole 8 at Cherokee Town & Country Club (South) is a par 3 of 213 yards from the championship tees. The hole has an 8874 sq ft green with two greenside bunkers, representing 3% of the total area. This challenging hole requires accuracy and precision off the tee, as any shot that strays too far offline can be punished by either water hazards or thick rough.

Given its length, a driver will likely not be necessary for most golfers; instead, a strong 7 iron should provide enough distance to reach the green in regulation. However, due to elevation changes on this hole it is important to factor in local weather conditions when making club selection decisions - especially during windy days where ball flight needs to be adjusted accordingly. As such, playing conservatively and aiming away from trouble may prove advantageous when attempting this hole.

Club Recommendations

For approach shots, accuracy is key. With two greenside bunkers and water hazards located nearby, golfers should focus on keeping their ball in play by playing towards the center of the green. The 8874 sq ft green provides plenty of room to work with; however, depending on pin position it may be beneficial to leave yourself a putt that has an easier break rather than attempting to get too close to the flagstick from off the tee or approach shot. Finally, for those who find themselves in one of the two greenside bunkers it is important to remember that these are relatively shallow traps and practice good bunker technique when trying to escape back onto the putting surface.
