Northern Country Club Nishikigahara
Located only 45 minutes by car from Tokyo in Saitama, this course has it all for the avid golfer with 2 18-hole courses and a 7-hole short course. The links style course is said to mirror Augusta and famous Japanese tour pro Jumbo Ozaki used to use this course as his practice ground in preparation of playing overseas. With a low number of hazards and flat but undulating layout, this course has something to offer to golfers of all handicap levels. Rates are reasonably priced with thru-play being standard for those who enjoy playing a round and doing something else with the rest of their day. There is also a 300 yard driving range with teaching pros available for lessons equipped with high speed video capture for swing analysis. The course is also open to foreigners who live in Japan who wish to buy a membership.
