Hole 8 at Bandon Dunes Resort's Pacific Dunes Course is a par 4 that plays to approximately 400 yards from the championship tees. This slight dogleg right requires golfers to shape their tee shot around the corner, with a 61 yard wide fairway providing plenty of room for error. The green is protected by one greenside bunker, representing 1% of the total area of 10471 sq ft. Golfers should take into account local weather conditions when selecting clubs; in particular, wind and altitude can have an impact on ball flight distance and direction. From the championship tees, golfers may consider using their driver (217 yards) off the tee and then either their 7 iron (140 yards) or pitching wedge (120 yards) for approach shots depending on wind conditions.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Aim to hit your driver off the tee, allowing for plenty of room in the wide fairway and taking into account the slight dogleg right.

2. Pay close attention to wind conditions when selecting clubs for approach shots; a 7 iron may be best if there is little wind, while a pitching wedge should be used with stronger winds.

3. Be mindful of the single greenside bunker when approaching the green; use caution when choosing an angle of attack and club selection to avoid it.

4. Take into consideration local weather conditions such as altitude which can influence ball flight distance and direction from this elevated tee box location at 400 yards from championship tees.
