PostSubject: Golfing experience in Hokkaido   Mon Jul 21, 2014 11:38 pm

all i can say is that golfing was never on the itinerary and it was all thanks to the magnanimity of the mrs that i had the opportunity to play.. banzai cheers 

having said that, only have pictures from a course that i played next to our hotel. please correct me if i'm wrong but always thought golfing was in the SGD 100s to 200s based on conversations with Japanese i have met in SG and prior trips to the land of the rising sun. to my surprise, for SGD 80-90, it seems that one will be able to play at pretty decent courses here in Hokkaido during the summer (of course pretty decent is based on a very biased sample of 1 course but price range thereabouts according to my research of more than 1 course).. and by summer the temperature here is like in the low 20s (degrees). driving around (with a gps) for golf is highly recommended since most of the courses seem to be in pretty secluded areas.

without further ado, enough with the talk and on with the pics..

Niseko Village Golf Course

Green fee (with buggy): ~6k yen
Club + shoe rental: ~4k yen
wife to sit on buggy and not play: ~3k yen
wife to let me play on trip: priceless

generally, have to say that the course played pretty straight and narrow with very few bends and water obstacles. plus points were 1) the view of mount yotei as you address, 2) greens that are relatively poofy, 3) and cool climate

apologies for me ruining most of the shots but my wife camera-woman so can't blame her for being a fan
