Well, not really. Those are the holes you HAVE to score on. You have to make birdies there, or atleast try.
And with those greens and the slope, you can't do it consistently with 8 irons.
So I get it, but if you're hitting iron off the tee, you damn sure have to hit the fairway. Most are hitting 3 and 4 irons there, which they will hit about 230 to a 24 yard wide fairway. It's not really a tough shot, it's not easy, but it's one that they should be able to do pretty regularly.
