Hole 8

Pro Guide Hole 8 : DUNDONALD : Par 5 : 539 Yards

Double dog leg par five offering little chance of getting home in two for anything less than the bravest or bigest hitters. A drive avoiding the two fairway bunkers - one left, one right - opens up an approach into the second half of the fairway. The safest route is into the middle of the second dog leg corner avoiding the bushes lining both sides of the fairway. One club too many for the second shot could leave the ball on a tricky bank, a pull or a push finding bushes right and left.

From the centre of the fairway it’s a medium to short iron (wind allowing) into an extremely difficult green. Not only is it guarded front right by a tight bunker but anything top left of the green is subject to a wicked down hill putt. Safest option is to play to the left hand side of the green with the slope bringing the ball back into the middle.
