Valhalla hole by hole guide:
Hole 8 – Par 3 – 174 yards
The 8th is the shortest par 3 on the golf course, but it’s by no means easy, as the nickname ‘Thor’s Hammer’ would indicate. Most players will be hitting a short iron, but the green complex is arguably the most testing on the course. Shaved run-off areas both short and long ensure precision is paramount, and the green itself allows for numerous hole locations.
