Wakagi Golf Club is another great golf course designed by Desmond Muirhead and it is one of the most famous golf courses in Kyushu and some have described it as reminiscent of a Japanese landscape painting.
A pretty easy start to your round with a gentle par 4 with a wide-open. The third hole is a very attractive par 3 with the river running along the right-hand side. As you approach the first par 5you need to be very accurate off the tee as the fairway is extremely narrow and this is followed by two dogleg par 4’s - one bending to the right and the other to the left with bunkers lying in wait should you drift off line. The ninth hole which is a par five is a potential card record with water all the way along the right-hand side and almost all the way along the left-hand side so there is no margin for error.
Most memorable holes on the inward nine include the par 4, 11th with this virtual island green and the par 4 12 with water all the way on the left-hand side. A very tough finish to your round as the 16th is a severe dogleg requiring you to tee off across the river to find safety on the fairway. The 17th is a short par 3 with water on both sides and no margin for error. The 18th is arguably the most difficult hole on the course. It is a par 5 almost surrounded by water all the way to the green with the creek bisecting the fairway as well. A bogey is a good score here.
