Golf travel in Japan has become a top choice during the COVID-19 pandemic due to its accessibility and prices that are no longer as high as those in South Korea. Package tours and memberships to specific resorts in Japan are popular, allowing you to stay longer and play only one course. This alone can be a good alternative to golfing in Korea.토토사이트

Golfers’ needs vary and their tastes are bound to be different. Of the more than 2,200 golf courses in Japan, the best place for foreigners to play a round is the Kawana Fuji Course.

Located on the Ito Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture, two hours south of Tokyo, Japan, Kawana Golf Resort was ranked No. 62 on Golf Magazine’s 2021 list of the top 100 courses in the world. Last year, it was ranked 42nd in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Courses in the World Excluding the United States.

Kawana is a seaside golf resort facing the Pacific Ocean with 36 holes on the Fuji Course and Oshima Course, both designed by British course architect Charles H. Allison in 1936. Centum Golf, which specializes in the world’s top 100 courses, is offering a special deal this Obon holiday that includes a round at Kawana, as well as the famous courses at Mt. Fuji and Hakone.

Kawana, which runs along the ocean with downhill holes perched on Pacific cliffs, was a favorite retreat of the Japanese imperial family and aristocracy. The Fuji course has hosted multiple Japan Opens and is the site of the annual Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA) Fujisan K Ladies.

Alison has designed some of Japan’s most prestigious courses, including Kawana Fuji, as well as Hirono and Naruo Golf Clubs in Kobe. In Japan, bunkers designed to make it difficult to get out of a bunker with a grassy edge are called “arison bunkers,” which means “bunkers made by Alison. Only a handful of golf courses in Japan have an Arison bunker, and the Fuji Course is one of them.

A trip to the Kawana-infused Ito Peninsula is only complete without a trip to Mount Fuji. The Onsenji Yumedono near Mount Fuji is a traditional ryokan that can cost as much as $1 million a night, with traditional Japanese kaiseki dinners served in private rooms, and each room has its own outdoor onsen.

Nearby Kawaguchiko Country Club (CC) is a 1977 course that accepts a small number of guests and is a members-only course. It’s the closest golf course to Mount Fuji, and at 1075 meters above sea level, it’s a forest bathing course that boasts lush red pine trees known as “karamatsu” in the cooler temperatures.

Daihakone CC is located on the Sengokuhara Plain in Hakone, a hot spring tourist destination, and has a 70-year history, having opened in 1954. The JLPGA’s CAT Ladies Tournament, which awards a digger as a prize to the winner, is held annually, and Korean players such as Ahn Sun-ju and Lee Bomi have often won the tournament, starting with the 2012 All-American.

An 87-year-old Japanese luxury resort, a world top 100 course, a course facing the summit of Mt. Fuji, and an off-the-beaten-path ryokan experience make for a high-end golfing experience unlike any other.
