Course 1 - Hole 8 is the final hole of Course 1 in Kirby's Dream Course. This hole introduces the Pond Switch, and features a larger pond along with some hilly terrain.
This hole features two distinct areas separated by cliffs, with the upper area taking up three fourths of the board. There are bumpers in place to help separate these areas for the most part, as well as some lined along the edges of the board. The upper part of the board slopes downward into a large Pond, and two Kabu can be found to the right of this pond along sloping terrain. Kirby starts near the left end of the board on the high cliffside, in front of a switch that can be used to drain the pond. From there, Kirby will need to make his way down to the lower portion of the board, where a third Kabu and Whispy Woods wait for him. Should he need to, a Warp Panel can be used to return to the upper portion of the board. Ideally, Kirby will have dealt with the other two Kabu before heading to the lower part of the board, where the cup will then be waiting for him.
In the Extra Game, Kirby starts on the right side of the board next to the pond. The Kabu on the left is replaced with a Flamer, while the Kabu on the right is moved up the slope closer to the edge, and the one in the lower portion of the board is replaced with Togezo. Everything else on the board is the same, though the optimal strategy will need adjusting due to Kirby's new starting position.
