Hanazono Golf Club
- Hanazono Golf, 1 Aza Hanazono
This delightful golf course about 10 minutes’ drive from Niseko is renowned for its immaculate grooming, superb beech tree-lined fairways, wonderful scenery (including of Mt Yotei) and four of the best par-3s on one course in the area.
The 17th hole, especially, is a gem. Playing 214 yards from a highly elevated back tee to a narrow green protected by a lake, it epitomises Niseko golf: scenic, challenging-yet-enjoyable and truly memorable.
At a little over 7000 yards (6400 metres) from the championship tees and 6760 yards (6178 metres) from the blacks, Hanazono resembles courses in parts of North America for its softness, scenery and feeling of relative isolation in the woods.
