BETHPAGE - RED COURSE -- HOLE #8
418 / 364 / 351 yards
Designed by A.W. Tillinghast
"Many believe this hole is where the Red Course begins to show its teeth. Trouble looms on both sides of this fairway, making an accurate tee shot imperative. The left side is well bunkered, running opposite and adjacent to the equally difficult 9th. A large bunker on the right 240 yards from the back tees surrounded by fescue makes reaching the green in regulation a challenge. Miss the green, and you'll face a test for your short game. Thick rough, fescue and bunkers will hamper your ability to get it 'up and down.'"
