Hole 8 at Pine Valley Golf Club is a 319 yard, par 4 with a slight dogleg right. The fairway width measures 46 yards and the green area is 3623 square feet. There are four greenside bunkers which make up 6% of the total area around the green. This hole plays slightly shorter from the Men's tees at 309 yards but still requires an accurate tee shot to set up an approach into this well-protected green.

Local weather conditions can affect how you play this hole - in summer months, temperatures may be high and altitude could cause your ball to fly further than expected, while windy days will require adjustments for club selection on both shots. In winter months, cold temperatures mean less carry so players should plan accordingly with their club selection off the tee as well as their approach into this tricky green.

For most golfers playing from these championship tees, a driver or fairway wood would be best off the tee followed by a mid-iron or hybrid for your second shot depending on distance and wind conditions. For example if you hit your driver 217 yards then you would likely need to use either a 7 iron (140 yards) or pitching wedge (120 yards) for your approach shot since it’s just over 300 yards away from these tees.

Club Recommendations

When playing this hole, it’s important to remember the slight dogleg right and plan your tee shot accordingly. You should aim for the left side of the fairway which will give you a better angle into this protected green. Avoid hitting too far down the fairway as there are four greenside bunkers that can come into play if your ball is not positioned correctly.

Finally, when approaching this green be mindful of its size; 3623 square feet may seem large but with 4 bunkers around it, players should take caution and try to hit their approach shots close enough for an easy up-and-down par save.
