Poipu Bay | Hole Eight

For most players the 8th hole is where the course begins. Here, the course turns back into the wind, presenting some of Poipu Bay’s most difficult and scenic holes. From the tee the player faces bunkers left and right as well as a baranca bordering the right side of the fairway. Again, controlling the ball flight will help in keeping a straighter ball, as the wind tends to push the ball to the right. The player’s approach shot is into the course’s smallest green, surrounded by bunkers. If the ball is not placed in the middle to right center of the fairway, the player will face a very awkward shot. Placing the ball on the right level of this tiered green is crucial for any chance of birdie.
