Robin Hood’s Forest
Named to evoke an image of Robin Hood’s Sherwood Forest, the Taiheiyo Associates Oarai Sherwood Course enjoys the typical climate of the eastern seaboard of the island of Honshu with a high ratio of sunny days throughout the year. Pleasing sea breezes in the spring and summer and comfortable warmth during the fall and winter make for refreshing golf the year round.
From beginners to highly competitive golfers, this 18-hole course satisfies everyone.
In addition, the surroundings provide wonderful opportunities for homebound shopping for such seasonal delicacies as Asahimura melons, shijimi clams from Hinuma, and anglerfish from the Oarai harbor.
Still, another drawing card is the lunchtime buffet of Oarai seafood, employing the freshest ingredients in dishes combining Japanese and Western buffet styles and served in a sunny restaurant overlooking the golf course.
