The eighth hole is an oppurtunity to make a good score. From the tee there is plenty of fairway for the golfer to aim at. It is common for any breeze on the day to help the golfer as it tends to blow straight down the fairway. The second shot should be aimed straight between the laurel bushes at either side of the fairway. The double green is reachable in two for the longer hitters.
Be sure not to play through the back of the green as it can lead to an embarassing putt back up a steep slope from the fifteenth green.
