St George's Hill - Hole 8 - Blue 9

A par 4 calling for an accurate drive down a narrow gap, between a large mound in the fairway on the right and the trees and rough on the left. Longer hitters can go straight over the mound as there is plenty of fairway over there. The fairway slopes off the mound to the left and tends to throw all but the best drives that way, sometimes into a fairway bunker set at the left end of the driving gap. The hole then turns a little left into a large green that slopes gently from right to left with a steep run-off on its left side. A long bunker guards the front right approach to the green and the fairway tends to throw approach shots away to the left.
