Hole 8 at Briarwood Country Club in Deerfield, Illinois is an exciting par 3. It measures 179 yards from the Pro tees, 173 yards from the Men's tees, 158 yards from the Seniors' tees and 137 yards for Women's tees. The green area is 10164 sq ft with two bunkers accounting for 4% of it. This hole does not have any water hazards to worry about but can still be tricky due to its length and slight elevation changes.

In summer months when temperatures are higher, golfers may find that their ball will travel a bit further than normal due to warmer air conditions which could lead them into trouble if they don't take account of this phenomenon during their tee shot planning. On windy days, players should pay attention to how much club they need as winds can affect ball flight significantly on longer holes like this one. In winter months when temperatures drop and humidity levels rise, golfers should expect more roll out on tee shots so plan accordingly by allowing for extra yardage off the tee box or playing a shorter club than usual in order to keep your ball in play and avoid potential hazards near the green such as bunkers or roughs.

The recommended club selection off the tee box would be driver (217 yds) for Pros/Men; 7 iron (140 yds) for Seniors; and pitching wedge (120 yds) for Women’s depending on weather conditions mentioned above. For approach shots onto this large green complex with two greenside bunkers factored in, make sure you select a club that allows you enough carry distance while also keeping your ball below pin level if possible - either mid-iron or hybrid clubs are ideal here depending on individual skill set & preference!
