Hole 8 – Blind Alley

Blind Alley is a par 4 hole most of which is uphill with the first part being a severe slope at the top of which there is a small copse on the left and another one on the right with an opening in between.

Overhead electricity wires pass over the course at this point. Any ball hitting these wires must be replayed without penalty.

The drive off the tee should be made through the gap between both of the copses. Going into the copse either side could leave the golfer with a chip out sideways.

After a good drive the golfer is faced with a relatively simple shot to the green providing the bunker set at about 65 yards from the green is negotiated safely, the fairway is still uphill but not as severe.

As the golfer gets close to the green the fairway begins to slope down to the green. Depending on the pin position for the day it is sometimes better to play a little short and left to allow the ball to run on to the green.

The green is guarded by two large, deep bunkers on the right and steep slopes down from the green to the back and to the right hand side. The green is large and relatively flat.

A genuine surprise when I stumbled across it last spring. Milford Haven is packed with variety and interest both on and off the course. A hidden Welsh Gem.

A real gem of a golf course and a very friendly welcome too. The course makes great use of the topography, thoughtfully designed and challenging even for lower handicaps. Quite a few holes where course knowledge a definite advantage. Highly recommend a visit.

Excellent golf course with great practice facilities, the course was in brilliant condition and the new 18th hole is a great closing hole. The pro Elliott, Bar and club members are friendly before and after your round. Food and beers are excellent value with the food being great quality. We had Sunday lunch the 3 courses were fantastic, piping hot and full of flavour. We will be returning and recommending to friends.
