Golf courses of Japan III - Hakusan Village - Queen Course

View all 9 photos...
I AM back in NZ, but im gonna finish off these fotos from japan golf first otherwise theyll get lost amongst the pile of other fotos ive always planned to show on here and never got round to
THis is the Queen course, and my particular favourite. It was probably the coldest, with a headwind almost all the way round, but great fun, good views of the mountains, and nicely placed strategic lakes etc.

Golf courses of Japan II - Hakusan Village - Prince Course

View all 9 photos...
This resort in Mie prefecture has 4 different "courses" each 9 holes in length. So if you can stay overnight like we did you can get to play all four. This is the first course, the "Prince" course. It was cold, very cold, and there was some snow around. The building in foto 2 is the clubhouse, and the one in # 3 is a large "onsen" or hot spring baths which are great after a cold day on the course. Of course cos they are 9 holes you get to punctuate the round with a lunch break. We were gonna stay in one of the lodges you can see in # 6, but decided it might be too cold, and opted for a large beef dinner and a room in the hotel on the 9th hole as seen in # 9.

Got back from Japan this morning and hopefully will be able to post and visit more frequently.

Golf course of Japan I - Iwamura Country Club

A little bit of snow doesnt stop you enjoying a game of golf
you just have to wear a few extra layers of clothes to keep out the cold, oh and yeah, a coloured ball helps. Golf in Japan is different to in NZ, its more of a luxury sport here whereas over there its accessible to everyone. Here its expensive, but you get a cart included that drives itself around the course. And you stop at 9 holes to have an 50 minute break for lunch before going out again. But the best thing, especially in winter, is the hot baths that are waiting in the changing rooms when you get back.

Hi guys. just jumped in to wish everyone a merry christmas. Bit of a shock coming from southern hemisphere summer back to a COLD Japan, but great to meet up with old friends.

Anyway, regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I wish you all the best for the season and the New Year.
