  • Championships hosted

The city of Shimonoseki is located in the southwest corner of Japan in the Yamaguchi Prefecture and it’s known as the nation’s “Fugu Capital,” due to the number of pufferfish processed annually by its licensed fugu chefs. The course lies half an hour’s drive north of the city, with holes set out on a property overlooking the Kanmon Straits.

The layout plays to a total length of 6,944 yards and it uses two sets of greens, as is the tradition in Japan. Although it occupies a tract of land by the water’s edge, the course is distinctly parkland in nature, its fairways routed around a mature pine plantation.

Founded in 1956, the club has twice hosted the Japan Open. The first occasion was in 1991, when Tsuneyuki Nakajima won the event, the 36th of his 48 victories on the Japan Golf Tour. The second Open at Shimonoseki was claimed by New Zealander David Smail with an aggregate score of 271 in 2002.
