Another week and another event in beautiful Hokkaido. This weeks course, Otaru CC, is absolutely stunning! It’s one of the best kept golf courses I’ve ever seen. Not one blade of grass is out of place here. Otaru CC is a very traditional golf course and boy can they set it up long. From the championship tees it measures 7,535 yards and because of recent rain there will be no run on the fairways, but that’s nothing new. All the Japanese courses have had soft fairways.

On their website you can view these great video fly overs of each individual hole. Well worth a look to see one of Japan’s oldest and most beautiful layouts:
