Map of Hokkaido

The second largest of Japan’s islands, Hokkaido is the also the most northerly of the nation’s forty-seven prefectures. The island is connected to Honshu by the Seikan Tunnel, which allows trains to run under the Tsugaru Strait. Around two million of Hokkaido’s five and a half million people live in Sapporo, the fourth largest city in Japan.

We currently feature three ranked courses from this region, including Otaru Country Club, which is located in the Ishikari Bay of the Sea of Japan, half an hour’s drive from downtown Sapporo. A modern design from Kokichi Yasuda, it opened for play in 1974 and has since hosted the Japan Open a couple of times.
