Baltusrol Golf Club Hole by Hole Guide: Hole 8

Hole 8 – Par 4 – 380 yards

After two long par-4s the short par-4 eighth offers plays a great chance of a birdie.

Most will keep the driver, and perhaps the woods as well, in the bag with five huge bunkers lining the fairway on either side.

The small green lies around to the right and is surrounded by sand but with a wedge in hand this shouldn’t be an issue for the world’s top players.

The putting surface is tricky but expect there to be plenty of birdies on this hole.
