A slow down strike is suitable for the starting hole.
If you aim for the left side of the fairway and the
center of the green on the second in a tee shot,this
hole is easy to make. However, if you hit the right
side of the green, be careful of bogeys and a double
bogey on the second. It is easy to take with 3 putts.
This hole is easy to make without taking a par.
This is a specialty hole with a bunker in the green.
The point is the second shot. There is a bunker
about 50 yards in front of the green, but if you are
too conscious of this you may be caught by the bunker
on the right, and there is the possibility of OB on
the right as well. The key to scoring depends on whether
you can keep firmly to the left side on the fairway.
The level of difficulty changes depending on the
location of the pin. For long putts, the slope at the
front, middle, and around the cup differs; the point is
the ability to read the line as accurately as possible.
This is a short hole with distance.
In addition to being a difficult hole to read, there
is a guard bunker on the left that should definitely
be avoided, and it is easy to miss the tee shot on
the right side. If you aim at the flower path, even
if you do not reach the green, the approach from the
flower path is comparatively easy so it is easy to
get a par. If you miss the bunker, the green is also
difficult and offers no chance; the strategy point
is to approach it from the front.
After hitting the ball down, this difficult hole slightly
inclines in a right dogleg. After shortcutting over the
pond and over the bunker, this is a regular tee of 230
yards. The large green is different in level and is 45
yards deep; the second shot requires an accurate shot.
Aim the tee shot to the left of the bunker, and the
second with distance to the safe left side. A 4-putt is
possible if the green with height difference is not on
the same side as the pin, so even if the ball cuts behind
the pin and misses to the left rear it is necessary to
consider how to approach this hole.
This is an extemely large, long hole where you can
enjoy the view of the scenic Seto Inland Sea.
The fairway is wide, but the difficulty lies in the
bunker of deep, rough grass that surrounds the green.
In order to avoid an OB on the left on the tee shot,
aim for the right side; the point of the second shot
is to be careful of direction rather than distance,
and the target is on the left side. The green has a
depth of about 60 yards and is divided into four
sides with height differences, so it is necessary
to resign to 4 putts depending on where the ball
drops. The key to making a score on this hole depends
on the 3rd shot aimed at the green and where the
approach is hit.
This is a middle hole with a short distance, but
the difficulty level varies greatly depending on
the pin location. If you hit the ball with an aim
on the right side of the tree in front, there is
not much distance remaining on the second shot.
However, the double-layered green has a large
height difference on the left and right, and if
the pin is on the left side, the front tree is a
stymie. If you aim directly at the shallow green,
it may be problematic; if you want a par, it is
easy to do so from the center of the green.
This is a short hole over a beautiful pond that is
reminiscent of a Japanese garden. The height
difference of the green is greater than it appears,
and an accurate shot is required. The method of
approach depends on the pin location of a short hole
with a short distance. If the pin is in front or
center, go for the left side; if it is at the far
back, the pond will require effort and a larger shot
should be made. The are no obstructing objects in
the area and the ball is susceptible to wind
influence, so it is important to check the wind
thoroughly before making a hit.
This is a hole with not much distance, but one
which is dotted with 9 cross bunkers of various
sizes. It is 230 yards from a regular tee over
the left bunker. Even if you make a mistake while
aiming for the green on the second shot, the
chances of being trapped by the guard bunker or
deep rough are low, and the best approach is
definitely from the flower path on the left side.
The green has large undulations, and depending
on where the ball falls it may roll into the
rough; regardless of where the pin is located,
the key to scoring on this hole is aiming for the
green on the second shot.
This is a downward middle hole with a dogleg
to the right. In the tee shot, the left bunker
stands at 220 yards. The green undulates greatly
and a muted putt is required. 3 putts are often
made and due to the complexity of the green,
it is often the case that the putts are overhit.
This is a moderate middle downhill hole.
There are cross bunkers at 190 yards on the left
and 230 yards on the right, and this is a hole at
which you can aim to get birdies with careful tee
shots. When the tee shot goes to the left side it
will also be an OB, so the safer route is in the
direction of the bunker on the right. It is
important to catch the center of the green because
it is easy to get trapped in the left and right
bunkers if you aim too hard for the pin, and
putting in the rear is difficult on the second hit.
If you approach from the front, it is not
difficult to get a par on this hole.
This hole has a dogleg along the left of the valley,
and has distance. Where the tee shot drops, the
target is a cross bunker at 180 yards on the left.
The second shot requires accuracy. The green is not
very difficult, so the key to making score is the
second shot. Excluding the approach from the front
of the green, the tree and bunker are obstacles
that will be troublesome. The strategy for this
hole is to switch tee shots and approach from the
front right side.
This is a short hole over a beautiful pond.
It is important to align the pin position correctly
as the center rear of the green is high and the
front dips in an incline. Aim the tee shot to the
right side, avoiding the pond and bunker on the left.
Excluding the green, the approach to this hole is
not difficult, and as long as you aim accurately to
the right side, it is easy to get a par on this hole.
On a day with good weather, this hole offers a
view of the islands in the Seto Inland Sea and
Yashima in Shikoku. The course is a slight dogleg
to the right with a bunker on the left at 180
yards; the second shot requires an approach that
calculates the distance and wind without looking
at the pin at your feet. The tee shot should avoid
an OB on the left and the bunker, and should go
to the right side. The green inclines to the left,
and there is a bunker awaiting on the right side,
so the second hit requires an accurate shot.
Excluding the green, the approach is poor and
it is difficult to aim at the bar. It might be
best to approach the second by putting the ball
in the foreground without overpowering it, and
with the idea that a bogey is ok.
This hole has a dogleg to the left and a
comparatively short distance. For the tee shots,
the direction of the target tree visible on the
left side is the best position. The tee shot is
a slight downhill and when the swing tends to
be loose, this shot is easy to make. Rather than
hitting by appearance, try hitting the listed
distance. The green declines to the left and
right both in the foreground, and it’s easier to
putt from the rear towards the front. After
thoroughly assessing the bank, hitting with touch
priority is the key to scoring on this hole.
This is a wide and straight hole. A grass bunker
cuts across the fairway diagonally at 180 yards
on the left. The green is tall in the center, and
the rear left and front are sloped; you can plan
for two strokes but when the pin is in the left
rear, the ball is difficult to stop. If you aim
for the grass bunker that cuts across the fairway
diagonally, you cannot expect great distance on
the second, and you will need to take an extra
shot. It is not necessary to worry much about this
hole as a long hole; you should decide whether to
hit across the grass bunker or whether to drop the
ball in front while paying attention to the wind.
A flat, straight course with a view of the
numerous beautiful islands of the Seto Inland Sea.
Aim to drop the tee shot in the center of the
fairway. There is bunker on the left and right.
The green is long and vertical, and is a gentle
three layers. The bunker at the front left is deep.
A huge bunker runs the entire right side of the
course for 80 yards to the green, and as it
approaches the green the lip becomes high; in
front of the green there is an arison bunker
with a lip of 3 meters.
This is the longest hole and has a slight
downward slope. A pond that is shaped like
a gourd cuts across the remaining 140 yards
diagonally, and the choice of club for the
second is important.
