Hole 8 - Perfect Play Explained

008 Ailsa
 

 

Arguably the most difficult tea shot of the round. The fairway slopes from left to right and throws the ball towards the three punishing fairway bunkers that offer little more than a recovery shot back into play. Ideally the tee shot will be shaped from right to left in order to hold the sloping fairway. From there the uphill 2nd shot of around 165 yards is played to this two tier green. This is one of the largest greens at the course but it is guarded by two bunkers short right and a deep, deep bunker short left all of which will punish miss-hit approach shots. A good approach shot will find the correct level of this green but if you don't find it, it will leave a very difficult two putt.
