Hole number 8 is a par 4 of 232 metres. It is stroke hole 17 for men and 11 for women.

Named “Hurricane Alley” the 8th tee can be a wild spot in a strong northerly. Most players seek to send their ball straight down the fairway whilst some endeavour to hit over the pines and straight at the green. Despite looking relatively simple, that strategy can be fraught with problems if the shot is not carefully aimed.

The fairway slopes to the left and in dry weather the balls will often track down into the pine hazard on the left. Smart golfers aim to the right and look to run the ball down towards the green.
