A good tee shot on the 8th hole requires carrying over the water.

Need To Know
Miramar Memorial Golf Course Miramar Road San Diego, California 92121 858-577-4155

The course is well maintained and the greens are considered some of the finest in the area. Miramar Memorial was chosen as the site for the prestigious 2001 Armed Forces Golf Tournament. The ninth hole, a par five measuring 640 yards from the blue tees, is the longest par five in Southern California.

With that hole lying in wait, it's a good thing that the preceding hole is a mere 184 yards. Still, that doesn't mean it's any easier. The eighth is a sturdy par 3 played over water to a green fronted by a stone retaining wall.
