Hole 8 "Kintyre's Cove"

 

Par 4 | 309 Yards

The green on this short par 4 is set in a rocky cove and offers spectacular views across the Mull of Kintyre. The tee shot should be hit just left of the stone cairn in the fairway and to the top of the hill. This will offer players the best possible view of the green. From here it is downhill to a green that also runs away from you. It is best to land the ball short of the green and thread it between the two pot bunkers.
 

Perfect Play - Hole 8

This picturesque short par 4 must be played strategically in my opinion. There is a temptation for the longer hitter to take on the hidden green from the tee but you need a lot of luck to avoid the thick rough and to find this small target.
