The fairway is flat and wide that it is comparative easy to make a birdie.
The 8th hole is a long distance par-3 hole. As it is the most easy hole to make a birdie in par-3 holes, you should aim the green positively. The 14th hole is a straight downhill, and it has a stream across the green from left side to right side. But it has a distance from stream to green, so you should take a courage to aim the green.
