Man, the courses in Japan just keep getting better! Each has had it’s unique characteristics which would appeal to golfers based on their personal preferences but, in saying that, a true golfer can appreciate each golf course by the challenge it poses to them and the game they bring to the course on a given day.

The North Country Golf Club is situated in Hokkaido, a providence in northern Japan more known for it’s ski resorts.

The North Country Course has the most mown grass I’ve ever seen on a golf course. The grounds keepers would work long hours to keep the rough cut to a reasonable length. Even though there are acres of rough, the fairways are quite narrow and require precision driving. When you reach the green you will still face a stiff examination of your short game on the sloping slick greens.

Yet again has the Japan Tour presented a course in immaculate condition. Not only is the course great but the practice facilities and hospitality areas are fantastic. I’m looking forward to this venue…. One shot at a time…..
