|Hole 8 Gold Tee||Green of Hole 8|
Pro's Advice: Short, dramatic, and scenic - it looks easy but can be deceiving. With dropoffs both sides, this hole needs no further hazards! However, the designer of our greens gave you two sand traps to protect and prevent runaway balls around the green - to help rather than to hinder! The green has a steep slope in front and flat in the back. Par is not easy if you stray here.
Naturalist's Advice: Dramatic and very scenic. Running along a gently undulating ridge, parallel with the river, the untouched river's edge remains along the entire right side of this fairway and untouched deep tamarack swamp remains along your left side. The privacy of this peaceful spot has golfers just delaying for sheer enjoyment - pause a minute, with the fishermen and otters on the river. The tamaracks are interesting and dramatic in very late fall, almost November, when they turn bright yellow. Many people think they are dying, but in they are deciduous not "evergreens"! With this proximity to water, in the spring we find turtles nesting in the sand traps - such warm and sandy spots! Hopefully just little painted turtles, not big snappers. If you do see a big snapper turtle here stay clear: his jaws will bend your golf club with no effort! But do remember to tell us at the clubhouse.
