The 8th hole at Caves Valley Golf Club is a 202 yard par 3 from the Championship tees and a 121 yard Par 3 from the Women's Tees. This hole features two greenside bunkers, which cover 10% of the green area, making it an important factor to consider when planning your approach shot. The green is 10133 sq ft., with water coming into play on the left side of the fairway.

In spring and fall months, golfers may experience moderate temperatures ranging between 55-75 degrees Fahrenheit (13-24 Celsius). During summer months, expect higher temperatures in excess of 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius) with potential for increased wind speeds due to storms passing through Maryland. In winter months, temperatures can drop below freezing so golfers should plan their shots accordingly given possible changes in ball flight conditions due to cold weather affecting club distance and accuracy.

Given these course conditions, players should choose clubs wisely depending on tee box type and handicap number while considering local weather patterns as well as water hazards and bunker placement around the green area. For example, players hitting off from championship tees will need to use a driver or fairway wood (~217 yards), followed by 7 iron (~140 yards) or pitching wedge (~120 yards). Players hitting off from pro/men’s/women’s tees will need to adjust accordingly using shorter irons such as 9 iron (~110 yards) or pitching wedge (~90yards).

Club Recommendations

Players should also take into consideration the size of the green (10133 sq ft.) and plan their approach shot accordingly. Golfers should aim for a spot on the green that is away from the bunkers and water hazards, preferably near to a pin flag location. This will help reduce any risk of ending up in either hazard or bunker while still providing an opportunity to make par or birdie if they can hit it close enough.

Finally, golfers should be aware of potential weather changes during their round and adjust their club selection based on temperature, wind speed, etc., as this could drastically affect ball flight conditions resulting in mis-hits or missed shots.
