If you are looking for a golf course that oozes class and quality, with a hint of tradition and a design that incorporates the natural beauty of its surroundings then you need to visit the Gozensui Golf Club.
Ideally located for those travelling to the area by plane, Gozensui Golf Club is located no more than 15 minutes from the Chitose International Airport in the Hokkaido region of Japan.
An area of outstanding natural beauty the Gozensui Golf Club blends seamlessly into the surroundings, offering a calm and tranquil lace to enjoy a round of golf.
The minimalistic design of the clubhouse adds to the relaxing feel of the complete club.
Clubhouse facilities are great, and nothing more than you would expect.
Large locker rooms, beautifully fitted out, a swimming pool and sauna offer guests with all the facilities needed to relax before or after the round.
A superb clubhouse restaurant offers a selection of local and international dishes that will not disappoint.
Heavily wooded the holes cut their way through avenues of trees creating holes that are both narrow and intimate, building a sense of intrigue.
The designer has created a delightful course and has added water hazards where necessary, which only add to the beauty of naturalness of the course.
White sand bunkers have been cleverly placed to provide both a visual distraction as well as a strategic headache.
The 4th is a deceivingly tricky hole, requiring a well-placed drive to leave the perfect angle from which to attack the pin. Club selection is vital, the green has three distinctive tiers and finding the correct tier is paramount if you want to walk away with a par on this hole.
Another superb hole is the 8th, a par 5 measuring 553-yards from the back tee. Stay left to give yourself the easiest shot for both the second and third shots. Missing right here is not an option as the land is heavily undulating making an up and down unlikely.
Hole 13, may well be unlucky for some. Water comes into play from the tee requiring a pin-point accurate drive that sets up a mid-iron shot into the green. Heavily undulating missing the green is not an option.
As you arrive on the elevated tee of the par 3 15th you are welcomed by some incredible views of the hole and the entire golf course. Although the hole is only 168-yards long the beauty of the view might be enough to distract you from the pending challenge of the hole.
The general condition of Gozensui Golf Club is superb, with the maintenance team constantly working to maintain the standards. Fast and smooth greens are wonderful to out on and the manicured fairways and rough are framed exquisitely by the mature tall trees that are a signature of this golf course.
