The North Country Club on the Hokkaido Island of Japan is located just 15 minutes from Chitose Airport and boasts a wonderful 18-hole golf course that is presented throughout the golfing season in pristine condition.
Designed by Isao Aoki, the course was opened in 1990 quickly gaining recognition for its simplistic design.
At 7078-yards the 18-hole par 72 course is links-like in style.
In comparison to other courses in the region, The North Country Club stands out as different, with few trees or hidden water hazards to test the golfer. Instead Aoki has created a stunning layout from the natural landscape and has sparingly used water hazards to achieve a testing course that is different each time you play it.
North Country Club is, as many links courses are, at mercy to the wind and it is this that makes it stand out.
No two rounds are the same here, and golfers will be challenged by the everchanging winds.
Greens are well laid out and of high quality, as are the wide and generous fairways. Immense bunkers frame the rolling fairways perfectly.
Clubhouse facilities are of high standard with a well-stocked professional shop, locker rooms, swimming pool and restaurant serving local delicacies and international dishes.
The driving range and short game practice facilities complete the offering at North Country Club.
