Video: Silver Lake's Toughest Hole
Course pro Gregg Tengerstrom shows how to play the eighth hole on the South Course at Silver Lake Country Club.
A sloping fairway and beautiful setting are the highlights of Silver Lake Country Club's signature hole, the eighth hole on the South Course.
A marshland creates a natural water hazard, and bunkers on the back of the green require the golfer to be accurate off the fairway with their approach shots.
Silver Lakes pro Gregg Tengerstrom demonstrates how to play the hole from the white tee box. The hole measures 370 yards from there. But there are four tee boxes to pick from. The others: Blue 417, Gold 300 and Red 300.
Course captain Bert Coghill says the South Course is his favorite, but all 45 holes at Silver Lake Country Club provide a unique challenge.
"It is a tricky and scenic course," he said. "It makes you think."
