8th: Heather Garden

348m, par 4

Here you are faced with a blind tee shot over a hill with out of bounds most of the way up the hole. At approximately 220 metres the hole crosses the club's access lane and turns sharply left. Position off the tee is critical with the big-hitters opting to drive over the out of bounds to leave a more simple approach shot. Those who take the more conventional route face a second shot with out of bounds left and rough and maturing trees to the right. The natural contours short of the green throw everything off to the left and often into a cavernous bunker beside the green. Once on the putting surface the problems continue as the green offers a wide range of pin-placings, each with its own difficulties. No wonder this is stroke index 1.

Pro's Tip:

Quite simple, don’t even think about taking on the corner unless you are sure you can make the carry, a great risk and reward shot.
