The Eight, Lang Knowe, is the hardest hole. Surprisingly, it is only 367 yards from the medal tee, a par 4 for the gents and a par 5 for ladies. Trees line the view from an elevated tee to a rocky bank crossing the fairway. Gentlemen golfers have to carry this bank onto the fairway that slopes towards the tee and to the right, reducing the run of the ball and taking a sliced ball towards the rough and whinns. Ladies may lay up their tee shots in front of the bank. The second shot requires a medium to long iron shot, add 2 clubs to your club selection, to reach uphill to the green that is slightly elevated. The marker pole is at the back of the green.
