The eighth hole is the most difficult handicap hole on the course. Don't let this short yardage par 4 fool you. A large fairway sand bunker can block out full-swing drives, causing most players to lay up short of the trap and then take the last 140 yards with a short iron into this very shallow green. Hurricane Creek lurks in front of the green just waiting to gobble up an errant or short shot. The key to this hole is placement of the tee shot. Keeping the ball in play is essential.
 
The green has a ridge from back to front that quickly gathers balls to the left or right. Reading this green is tricky. Take a good look and trust the slope of the hill...not your eyes!
