Miyazaki Country Club

MiyazakiThis seaside course consists of 18 holes separated by pine trees along the seashore. It was designed by Tokuyuki Miyoshi, a famous amateur golfer who won the Japan Amateur Championship three times in a row in the 1950s, when golf was not yet a common sport in Japan. This is the first of the 24 golf courses he designed. The course features a strategic design around the greens that requires accurate shots.

The course is only a 5-minute drive from Miyazaki Airport and a 15-minute drive from Miyazaki City.
