Hole 8 at Onion Creek Club is a challenging par 4 that measures 450 yards from the championship tees. It's rated as a 5 on the course handicap, so it will be difficult for even experienced golfers to reach the green in regulation. The fairway is slightly doglegged left and has an approximate width of 44 yards, providing ample room off the tee for all levels of players. There are four bunkers along this hole, with one greenside bunker representing just 1% of total bunkers on this hole.

The approach shot can play differently depending on local weather conditions throughout each season; during winter months when temperatures are cooler and wind speeds higher, golfers may want to choose a more lofted club than usual due to increased ball flight distances caused by these elements. In summer months when temperatures are warmer and wind speeds lower, shorter clubs should be used since ball flight distances will be reduced due to these factors. A golfer hitting around 217 yards with their driver should consider using either their 7 iron or pitching wedge for their approach shot into this green which measures 5681 square feet in size.
