Hole 8 at Woodholme Country Club is a challenging Par 4 that plays to 333 yards from the Pro tees, 310 yards from the Men's tees and 253 yards from the Women's tees. The hole has a slight dogleg right with 45-yards of fairway width. The green area measures 7462 sq ft and is guarded by three percent greenside bunkers. During summer months, altitude can be a factor as well as wind gusts which may affect ball flight conditions and club selection off the tee box. A good drive will leave you in prime position for an approach shot to this slightly elevated green; however, errant shots may find one of six strategically placed bunkers or rough areas surrounding it. To make par on this hole, players should consider hitting driver off the tee if they are confident in their accuracy, otherwise lay up with an iron or hybrid club followed by a mid-iron approach shot into the green making sure to account for any wind gusts that might be present during your round.

Club Recommendations

1. Off the tee, if you are confident in your accuracy, hit driver to maximize distance and set up a shorter approach shot into the green.

2. If you are not as confident with your accuracy off the tee, lay up with an iron or hybrid club to ensure that you stay in play and have an easier approach shot into the green.

3. Make sure to account for any wind gusts when selecting which club to use off the tee box or on your approach shots into the green.

4. When hitting onto this slightly elevated green, make sure that you take enough club so that it carries over any bunkers surrounding it but also doesn’t go too far beyond them leaving yourself a difficult chip back onto the putting surface.
