Greater Tokyo

Kannami Springs Country Club

Designed by American golf course architect, Pete Dye (Dye Designs), this scenic resort course opened in 1989. Located about 120 kilometers (about 75 miles) South-West of the center of Tokyo, it takes only 70 minutes from the center of the city by bullet train from Tokyo or Shinagawa stations.

This world-class resort course also has a hotel, tennis courts, and an outdoor pool. While there is a membership system, visitors are welcome to use the restaurant, lockers, shower facilities, and shops in the hotel premises' cozy clubhouse.
