UMK Country Club

This 18-hole golf course is located in a hilly area in the southern part of Japan and has hosted many tournaments such as AXA LADIES, Kyushu Open Golf Championship and Kyushu Mid-Senior Championship.

The course is well maintained and the contrast of the white sand bunkers with the colors of the fairways and greens is beautiful. The course opened in 1991.

It takes about 30 minutes from Miyazaki City by car to the north, about 35 minutes from Miyazaki Airport by car, and about 10 minutes from PHOENIX SEAGAIA RESORT by car.

Originally, the club is a membership golf club, but visitors are welcome to play as well. Visitors can use the restaurant, lockers, showers, and stores in the clubhouse.
