8th & 17th Holes

8th hole is another layup or risk reward dog leg right par 4. The green is reachable from the tee but if not hit well you will definitely be in trees of fescue. Currently you can see the pin from the tee but the newly planted hardwoods will block your view in a few years. The left side is lined with fescue and mounds. The green falls away from you, it is a good idea to stay far enough away to get some spin on the ball, coming in from too close or the rough, you will most likely find yourself over the green.

17th tees are moved way back for the second nine. A large lilac bush blocks your view of the fairway and a driver will most likely put you in the new trees on the right or through the fairway in deep rough. This can be a tricky hole on windy days.
