Japan Golf, Gormet and Culture Tour

Coming Soon

Long seen as the exclusive playground of the rich and important, golf courses in Japan are now making golf more accessible. There are just shy of 2,350 courses dotted across Japan offering facilities and degrees of difficulty to suit all tastes and abilities. Many Japanese courses are renowned for their beauty, their perfect maintenance, and, often, technical requirements that will challenge even the most accomplished players. A round of golf in Japan is usually assumed to be an all-day event that includes a leisurely lunch break between the first and back nine. Many of the top courses have their own on-site onsen in the clubhouse to relax in after a round, a highly unique experience.

Courses can be found from Hokkaido in the far north of Japan to Okinawa at the other end of the archipelago. Many are clustered in the countryside within close driving distance of the major cities. The Olympic Games 2020 will raise the profile of Japan as a golfing destination, and so will Japan´s first PGA TOUR event in October 2019 as part of the annual swing through Asia.

In addition to high-quality golf, Japan wows with stunning nature, impressive culture, friendly people, and world-famous cuisine. You can expect to find a highly seasonal menu serving regional specialties and dishes as delicious as they are photogenic. While sushi is arguably Japan’s most famous dish, there are plenty of meat and vegetable alternatives to choose from.

The course was created by renowned course design architect Seiichi Inoue and hosted many a fierce battle. Designed with Mackenzie bent golf green, the course is kept in best conditions throughout the year providing golfers with a caddy for assistance.

Nemu Golf Club

Overlooking Agoga Bay the Nemu Golf club is a wonderful mix of seaside splendour and woodland retreat that recently underwent a major remodelling included the re-routing of the course, with holes being swapped to create a more flowing course layout. At 6768-yards the course is not the longest you will come across, but the intricate design and the ever-changing sea-breezes will keep all golfers on their toes. The fairways are a deep green colour and set against the beautiful blue sky create an amazing canvas, and the design of the holes sits perfectly upon it. White-sand, decorative bunkers add an incredible dimension to the course, along with the strategic aspect of the bunkers the aesthetic benefits they have just add to this artistic delight. Undulating across the natural terrain the native trees frame the holes giving even more definition to each hole. The greens are large and varied which is a wonderful change from the double green courses which are generally much smaller. A large, natural grass driving range, incredible short game area and pristine putting green encourage and make practice a real delight.

Tsu Country Club

Tsu Country Club is a stunning course that will test both your mental and physical game. Measuring 7023-yards from the championship tees, the par 72 course has a stadium feel to it, much like the famous US Open courses. Tsu Country Club has some very interesting design features which include the incredible brick-faced water hazards that create a wonderful visual impact, drawing the golfer´s eye to the water hazard. Large and decorative, the white sand bunkers break the vast amounts of green in the background and add another dimension to the superb design that is not only challenging but aesthetically pleasing. Fairways sweep majestically between the trees, bunkers and water hazards and are maintained to the highest of standards. Greens are heavily protected and framed by large imposing bunkers, subtle undulations make picking the correct line difficult, but the quality is unquestionable. The Tsu Country Club clubhouse sits proudly overlooking the tremendous course and the facilities are incredible. A VIP-room is available for private hire, the Fontainebleau lounge, a cosy lounge, and the sophisticated restaurant offer golfers a wide variety of places to eat and relax before or after their game. Shower and locker rooms are well-appointed. Don´t miss a delicious lunch or dinner at this wonderful club. The Matsusaka wagyu beef prepared by Chef Mr Tetsuya Maeda will have your taste buds singing. If you are particularly lucky, you will get dinner served at the owner´s table. Hospitality at Tsu Country Club is second to none and you will love your unique golf experience at this special course.

Hakone Country Club

Host course for “Japan Women’s Open Championship” in 2002, the Hakone Country Club is set on the northeast slopes of Hakone in Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park amidst the hot springs that the region is famous for. Designed by Shiro Akaboshi in the early 50s, it was built before golf really took off in Japan. Prior to that, golf had a somewhat elitist image in Japan and was seen as a pastime of the favored few. Hakone is the product from the final years of that era. When they began the construction, they discovered that the soil under the proposed layout was inferior, they imported earth from the Mount Fuji region, darkened with ashes from the volcano. The result is a beautiful course with spectacular views of the Hakone mountains. Akaboshi made full use of whatever natural features he found. The course is reasonably long at 6451 meters from the back tees which, allied to small greens, makes for a most challenging layout.

Tokyo Golf Club

From its beginnings in 1913 with a mere six holes, the Tokyo Golf Club has become the most high profile club anywhere in the area. The original site was large enough for this first course to be expanded to nine holes, but a new site, in Sayama City, was needed to accommodate the full eighteen that were laid out in 1955. This course shows the influence of Charles Alison, in particular the deep bunkers that Alison popularized with his Hirono layout. The Tokyo course is kept from growing beyond its 6400-meter length by the surrounding development, but it nevertheless attracts some top tournaments, in part because of its proximity to the capital. The Japan Open has been played here a number of times, most recently in 2001. The terrain is essentially parkland, with evergreen and chestnut trees fringing many of the holes. The challenge increases progressively, so the 16h and 18th are particularly difficult. Redesigned by Gil Hanse in 2010, its a course that is mature way beyond its years.

Narita Golf Club

Located near the Tokyo Airport some forty miles outside the city, Narita was founded in 1964 as a private club. The site features rolling, but not mountainous, terrain that makes it perfect for golf. Owing to its proximity to the capital, Narita was designed to appeal to the corporate crowd as a place for leisure and for making contacts. The current course was laid out by one of the biggest names in Japanese golf, Taizo Kawata, who is not only a designer, but also a sportswriter, commentator and member of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. Narita is a late example of Japanese golf before the economic travails that have plagued the country in recent decades. But while fiscal belts have been tightened over the years, this club remains well appointed and well maintained. The course is of championship length, but offers a generous range of tee positions.
