Olivewood Private Estate Golf Course Hole 8

Hole Eight

Hole eight tee complex is one of the most attractive features of this stunning hole. A long path along the side of a hill links the seventh green to the back tee, from here its switchbacks down to the other tees, then continues to drop onto the start of the fairway.

The shot from the top tee into an easterly wind can be intimidating, particularly with a bushed gulley separating the tees from the fairway. Further down the fairway, a ditch effectively halves the hole. Even long hitters might struggle to clear this with their opening shot. A small dam on the left of the ditch adds to the difficulty. After passing these obstacles, the fairway flattens and leads to a slightly elevated green.
