Hole 8 at Country Club at Muirfield Village is a 570 yard, par 5 with slight dogleg right. From the Championship tees, it has an average width of 49 yards and 7 bunkers scattered across the fairway. The green itself is 11362 square feet in size and only 1% of that area contains bunkers.

The hole plays differently depending on the season due to changes in temperature, altitude, and wind conditions. In springtime temperatures are mild but can be accompanied by strong winds which can affect ball flight distances for longer clubs such as driver or 3 wood. During summer months temperatures are hot but there tends to be less wind making it easier for players to hit their shots further than normal. Fall brings cooler temperatures that can help golf balls travel farther while winter brings colder weather and increased chances of rain which makes the course play slower than usual due to wetness from precipitation.

Given an average driving distance of 217 yards with a driver, this hole should be reachable off the tee for most players who use their driver or 3-wood appropriately according to local weather conditions (i.e., if there's a lot of wind hitting into you then club up). After reaching the fairway, golfers will have between 140-170 yards left depending on how far they hit their drive and will likely need either an iron or hybrid club for their approach shot onto the large green (11362 sq ft) where only 1% contain bunkers so accuracy is key here!
