PLAYABLE AND MEMORABLE COURSE DESIGNED BY CAREER GRAND SLAMMER GARY PLAYER, ONLY 30 MINUTES BY HIGASHI-KANTO EXPRESSWAY
Blessed with soil and topography supremely suited to a golf course and designed by Gary Player, who won all four of the world’s major golf championships, the Narita Golf Club course quickly became referred to as one of the most memorable in Japan. The holes make use of the level marshes and plains that curve subtly among small groves. Player has said, “Lots of places seemed to be asking to be hole locations from the very start. There was practically no need to shave off mountains or move masses of earth. Just standing there, I could envision a hole and then plan it. I had no idea such a wonderful location still existed in Japan.”
Narita Golf Club hosted the first US PGA Tour sanctioned tournament, the “2017 Japan Airlines Championship” and many legendary players were impressed by the well-maintained green conditions. That showed the course can withstand competition among the world’s top ranked players, but also that average golfers can enjoy a round if they play according to their skills. The course is enjoyable for all levels of golfers.
