Hokkaido golf courses

Hokkaido is the northern most of Japan’s four main islands and despite being the second largest, remains the least developed.  Therefore, if you are looking for a Japan golf holiday with a difference, Hokkaido makes a great choice.

The island of Hokkaido is surrounded by sea on all sides and accounts for 22% of Japan’s total land mass.  The winter months changes the Hokkaido landscape into one which is perfect for winter sports but the spring, autumn and low humidity of the summer makes these three season an ideal time to play golf in Hokkaido.

The world’s longest rail tunnel, the Seikan Tunnel, links Hokkaido with Japan’s main island of Honshu and is the only land link between the two islands.  Chitose Airport, which is in the city of Sapporo, is the main gateway for golfers arriving from outside Japan and some flights will arrive via Tokyo or Osaka.

Nature is one of Hokkaido’s main attractions, with Daisetsuzan National Park, the largest national park on the island presenting a mountainous area of mainly unspoilt wilderness.  Visitors can also enjoy the Shiretoko Peninsula and Kushiro wetland, the latter of which is home to an array of bird life, including the Japanese Crane.

For a truly spectacular sight, Shikotsu-Toya National Park is a must see and is full of volcanoes and lakes.

In addition to the fantastic scenery, Hokkaido is home to some tremendous golf courses including Sapporo Kitahiroshima Golf Club, Niseko Golf Course, Hokkaido Golf Club and Tomakomai Golf Resort 72 Emina Golf Club, to name but a few.

The nature and choice of courses make Hokkaido the perfect choice for a Japan golf holiday.

To create the tournament course of 18-holes the East would normally be paired with the West course to give a total distance of 6944-yards, a nice change to many modern-day courses are the short target par 3s on the West Course.

The final loop of 9 is the Middle course, with a par of 36 covering a total of 3289-yards the Middle course is the shortest of the three, but no less demanding from a technical point of view.

A 1 hour and 15-minute drive from the Japanese city of Sapporo you will come across the Hayakita Country Club.

The clubhouse and adjoining facilities are superb, with all the necessary amenities to cater for both the members and guests that choose to visit Hayakita Country Club.

Boasting two 18-hole golf courses, the North and South, Hayakita Country Club delivers two superb golf courses that are able to cater for golfers of all levels and abilities.

The gently undulating landscape, perfect for a golf course has been utilized to the maximum to create two wonderfully enjoyable golf courses.

The North course, measuring 7200-yards with a par of 72 is the more challenging of the two courses. Enjoying wide fairways, flanked by trees and bunkers the tee shots are not overly demanding and although the course is long it rarely tests from the tee.

Cleverly positioned bunkers and the use of additional water hazards blend to provide some difficulty.

The South course is shorter at 6941-yards and also a par 72 but is similar in design. Moving over the gently undulating terrain it is an easy walk, and much like the North course relies on the well-positioned bunkers and water hazards to provide the style and challenge to the golfers.

Course conditions are always good and both courses are a joy to play.

Hitsujigaoka Country Club is one of the most popular golf courses in the Sapporo area and was built on the remains of the cross-country skiing courses used at the 1972 Winter Olympics. The course runs through the thick forest of birch trees which is typical of the area.

The course is pretty flat with not too many severe elevation changes. On the outward nine the holes are almost all dead straight with not too many bunkers so providing you are straight off the tee you should score well.

The inward nine is a bit more varied with a few doglegs and the pick of the holes is the par 5, 17th which is an S-shaped hole with a pond protecting the front of the green.

Hokkaido Brooks Country Club, is an incredible design that incorporates every single aspect of the natural landscape, whilst generating a golf course that is a true test of golf and worthy of championship golf being played here.

Set in a massive 1.65 million square meters the 18 holes blends with the natural beauty of the landscape, creating two distinctive sets of 9-holes.

The front 9 is undulating and the holes are framed exquisitely by the Japanese Larch and white birch trees. A small brook runs throughout the course adding a tranquillity along with additional difficulty. The final 6 holes are more of a traditional Scottish links, than a parkland course as it opens out, with wide, rolling fairways, enormous bunkers and large undulating greens that somehow blend effortlessly with both the landscape and the front 9, and it is this effortless flow that really stands out when you visit Hokkaido Brooks Country Club.

To complete the incredible set-up is the luxurious, large clubhouse that caters for every single need, with large, spacious locker rooms, bright and airy restaurant and a well-stocked pro-shop with additional features for members. Hokkaido Brooks Country Club boasts superb driving range and putting green maintained to the same exacting standard as the golf course.

Hokkaido is the northern island of Japan and a great place to visit for those who love nature, skiing and playing golf.  You will find a wealth of golf courses available to play in Hokkaido but arguably one of the best golf clubs in this region of Japan is Hokkaido Golf Club.

If you are travelling from outside Japan, you may be able to catch a direct flight to Sapporo Chitose Airport, which is Hokkaido’s only significant international airport.  You will find direct flights from China, South Korea and Thailand but for those coming from Europe and United States, you will need to fly to Tokyo and get a short connecting flight.

Kosaido Sapporo Country Club is a very picturesque course which is not too far from the centre of Sapporo so this is a popular course with locals.  The course winds its way through the attractive countryside and offer great views from the top of the course.

The fairways are quite undulating and its not easy to find a flat lie- also, at certain times of the year the rough can get quite thick.

The course is not too difficult providing you can keep out of the pot bunkers which are scattered across the course and once you get in you will probably lose a shot.  The course was designed by Peter Thomson and perhaps he had some thoughts of St. Andrews when building the course.

A two-hour drive from the New Chitose Airport you will come across the Niseko Golf Course.

As a sister course to the Niseko Village layout, Niseko golf course was designed by legendary American golfer Arnold Palmer.

Measuring 6805-yards from the championship tees, the Niseko Golf Club is a true test of golfing ability.

The majority of golfers will and most definitely should play from the forward tees, as the difficulty of the course is high. Deep, punishing rough and out of bounds on almost every hole, the championship tees demand both length and accuracy if you want to post a good score here.

Designed by Yoshaki Tsutsumi the Niseko Village golf course was opened in 1992 and boasts a par-73 course measuring 6845-yards from the back tees.

Unlike many courses in the area, Niseko Village Golf Course is relatively flat but that does not mean the course is easy.

An incredible feature of the Niseko Village course is the 10th hole. A monster par 6, that measures a massive 721-yards from the back tees requiring 4 well-struck shots to reach the green.

The incredible Mount Yotei creates the perfect backdrop to many of the holes that meander through the towering native trees, creating the feel of a “millionaires” golfing experience in some of the most spectacular scenery in Japan.

Strategically placed water hazards, create additional difficulty to the course as well as creating yet more aesthetically pleasing holes designs.

Facilities include the large hotel and clubhouse complex with various dining and accommodation options, and while the golf course is closed during the winter months the resort at the foot of the mountain is busy year-round with the ski resort.

Niseko Village Golf course is a course that caters for your every need, with first class facilities, both non-golf and golf related.

It is certainly a place that you must visit.

The South Course is longer than the East at 6587-yards, also a par 72. Following a similar theme as the East, The South has narrow fairways, cleverly positioned bunkers and, unlike the East the inclusion of water hazards to increase the difficulty level.

Perhaps the most favoured course here is the West course. At 6734-yards it is the longest of the three courses and also boasts a par of 72.

The stand out hole of the resort is without doubt the par 3 third of The West course, measuring 182-yards from the elevated back tee, you are afforded a perfect view of the island green below, simply stunning.

Similar to the East and South the West´s main protection are the narrow tree-lined fairways, with strategically positioned bunkers and the occasional water hazard.

Shin-Chitose Country Club is a very popular course not far from the international airport and around 30 minutes from the centre of Sapporo set in a very hilly location with wonderful scenery.  It is a 36-hole layout - the Hamanasu Course is a very tough course where each hole is separated by the white birch trees and Karamatsu, which has plenty of elevation changes and undulations together with numerous water hazards.

The pick of the holes on the outward nine of the Hamanasu Course include the par, 4th with a large pond protecting he front of the green and the b7th which is a short dogleg par 4 with pond along the left waiting for the mishit approach.  On the inward half the par3, 15th demand an accurate tee shot over a valley to a well-protected green.  The final 18th is the toughest hole on the Hermanus course as the green has 3 tiers and several undulations – a bogey is a good score here.

On the other hand, the Holoca course is a highly strategic course that demands accurate shot making because the fairways are very narrow and there are numerous bunkers protecting the greens.  The most dangerous holes include the 7th, which although it’s quite a short par 4, requires you to flirt with danger to get in the right position off the tee. The elevated green on the 13ht is difficult to hold and you can easily drop shots here.
