This is a scenic hilly course located in the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. Scenery includes Mt. Fuji to the north and the Amagi mountain range to the south. The course's average elevation is about 400 meters (1,300 feet ), making it relatively cool in summer. Although the course is hilly, each hole's ups and downs are moderately well absorbed. It features sprawling fairways and dazzling white sand bunkers.
