Miyazaki is the capital city of Miyazaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu and is situated on the east coast. This makes it the perfect destination for a round of golf and one of the top golf courses in the region is UMK Country Club.
It takes just 30 minutes to travel from the city to UMK Country Club, making it the perfect base to enjoy a round of golf at this venue. UMK Country Club was established in 1991 and is an 18 hole, par-72 golf course. Since 2013, the AXA Ladies Golf Tournament in Miyazaki has successfully been staged at UMK Country Club, which underlines the high quality of the golf course.
However, the course is suitable for players of all abilities and plays to just over 7,000 yards from the back tees. There is a choice of 5 tee boxes on every hole and the course is mostly flat throughout the 18 holes. Look out for the water which comes into play on the 2nd, 11th, 13thand 18th holes.
The greens are often well protected by bunkers, with at least two surrounding each of the 18 greens on the course. The front 9 holes are generally more open in comparison to the back 9 holes, which feature narrower, tree-lined fairways.
In addition to the golf course, UMK Country Club has a great range of facilities available for all to use. This includes a restaurant with dishes using local ingredients plus a bathing room, pro shop and driving range.
