Reach The Top of the Top

Imagine an experience that’s better than the best: a level of excellence that reaches so high it can only be called Top of the Top. Grand vistas framing majestic fairways. Immaculate greens forever preened to prime condition. That is the universe awaiting golfers who experience any of the 17 spectacular courses of the Taiheiyo Club Japan.

Play in the Footsteps of Champions

Among the 17 Courses of Taiheiyo Club’s Japan properties are some of the world’s finest championship links. Courses that not only host professional tournaments, but display a refined sense of style and beauty that is exemplary of Japanese aesthetics. 

17 Gorgeous Locations

World Class from Every Perspective

Featuring majestic views of Mount Fuji, a true hillside course, Gotemba is the flagship of the Taiheiyo Club family. Selected as the No. 1 course in Japan by the country’s leading golf magazine Par Golf, it’s no surprise that Gotemba is host to a range of international professional tournaments, including the Mitsui Sumitomo Visa Taiheiyo Masters and the World Golf Championships EMC World Cup. Golfers around the world agree “you haven’t golfed in Japan until you’ve played Gotemba.”

A Seamless Blend of Championship Golf and Natural Beauty

“Frankly, I consider the 18th par 4 finishing hole to be the most beautiful in Japan,” said Jumbo Ozaki while playing the Mitsubishi Galant Tour at Rokko in 1997.  Today, Rokko hosts the Maruhan Cup Taiheiyo’s Club Seniors Tournament as well as several other pro and pro-am tournaments. Known for dramatic vistas and ideal conditions, Rokko is not to be missed.

Shine Up Your Game When the Leaves Turn Gold

Nestled in a generously wooded area, Konan is the home of the 2015 Japan PGA Championships, and the brainchild of master designer Shunsuke Kato. Playing Konan’s 18 holes in autumn, when the surrounding foliage is blazing reds and yellows, is a natural delight. And when it’s time to unwind, the clubhouse has nine elegant banquet rooms available for gatherings of all sizes.

Undulating Greens on a Tranquil and Picturesque Course

Taking advantage of the flat topography of the Kanto Plain, this 18-hole course is framed in traditional Japanese foliage. Minori has been home to several ladies tournaments including a showcase event on the 2016 LPGA tour and the Japanese LPGA Toto Classic. It is said that the setting of each hole is as lovely as a classic Japanese painting.

"I'm a member." -Bubba Watson

Known for his long, blazing drives American Gerry Lester "Bubba" Watson, Jr., (b. November 5, 1978) is one of the few left-handed pros on the PGA Tour. That southpaw swing has earned him two Masters Tournaments in 2012 and 2014. In February 2015, Watson reached a career-high 2nd place in the Official World Golf Ranking. Taiheiyo Club is proud to call Bubba one of its own.

Keeping Sublime Greens for Stellar Tournaments

Around the world, Japan is famous for the beauty and serenity of its unique gardens, providing space for both recreation and reflection. No doubt, Japanese gardening is a cultural treasure. You can be sure the same rustic styling and attention to detail is on display in the fairways, greens, and even bunkers of Taiheiyo Club courses. It’s not bragging to say you simply won’t find better manicured greens anywhere else on earth.

From Narita’s rolling topography and curving marshes, designed by master champion Gary Player, to the strategically demanding Mashiko, a masterpiece of Shunsuke Kato’s featuring holes, divided by red pines and sawtooth oaks, there’s an abundance of both natural and challenging diversity in the Taiheiyo Club portfolio.

Growing Fine Golfers,
Grooming Future Champions

Taiheiyo Club is committed to increasing the popularity of golf both in Japan and around the world by teaching the skills that make golf more exciting for players at all levels. 

In 2015, the Japan Professional Golfers Association (JPGA) decided to form a public golf academy with base courses in Kanto and Kansai. The goal is to encourage the development of skills for all levels of golfers targeting both juniors and general amateurs. Courses are geared towards both individuals playing for fun and those who are serious about becoming pros.

To support the JPGA agenda, Taiheiyo renamed its Mashiko course, the “Taiheiyo Club Mashiko PGA Course” and opened the Taiheiyo Club PGA Golf academy. We are looking forward to bringing up Japan’s next generation of golf lovers and perhaps some golf champions.
