NISEKO FUKUI GOLF COURSE

DISTANCE:   6805 Yards   PAR:   72

LOCATION:   〒048-1561 Fukui, Niseko-cho, Abuta-gun, Hokkaido

OPEN:   July to September (Closed Thursdays)

Niseko Fukui Golf is a sibling to the Niseko Village Course.  What makes Fukui different is the multiple elevation changes encountered as you navigate your way around the course.

Designed by legendary US player, Arnold Palmer it is characterized by its deep rough and ever-present out-of-bounds (OB) on almost every hole. Consequently, many players choose to tackle the course from the shorter white tees whose length measures 6306 yards.  A unique feature is the quartet of lengthy par-3 holes – the shortest being the 189-yard downhill second hole, with two others measuring 214 yards and 239 yards respectively.

NOTE: a golf cart is not required.

The 721-yard par 6 10th hole takes the average player four quality shots just to reach the green making it the most memorable hole.

The course is best described as meandering with old tree lined fairways with clear views of Mt Yotei.  Designed by Arnold Palmer the course offers risk and reward on most holes.  Course grooming is top class and

LOCATION:   Higashiyama, Niseko-cho, Abuta-gun, 048-1592

OPEN:   May 14 to October 30

This delightful golf course about 10 minutes’ drive from Niseko is renowned for its immaculate grooming, superb beech tree-lined fairways, wonderful scenery (including of Mt Yotei) and four of the best par-3s on one course in the area.

The 17th hole, especially, is a gem. Playing 214 yards from a highly elevated back tee to a narrow green protected by a lake, it epitomises Niseko golf: scenic, challenging-yet-enjoyable and truly memorable.

At a little over 7000 yards (6400 metres) from the championship tees and 6760 yards (6178 metres) from the blacks, Hanazono resembles courses in parts of North America for its softness, scenery and feeling of relative isolation in the woods.
