With 7 world-class golf courses a short drive from Niseko, this region is fast becoming one of Asia's premier summer golf destinations.
There is an amazing range of activities for visitors to Niseko in Summer and those activities offer something for everyone. We have decided to have a look at one of our favorites, golf. There are 7 world class courses in the Niseko region and all are a short drive from Hirafu. Our cool summer time temperatures and low humidity combined with comparatively low costs to play have seen Niseko as a golf destination slowly start to rise in popularity across Asia and the world.
All the holes on the various courses are spectacular but we have some favorites and across the coming weeks will be taking you down the fairway on them via a video. The first of these videos has us teeing off with Number 2 at the Par 73 Niseko Village course:
NISEKO VILLAGE HOLE NUMBER TWO
Number two is a long hole bordered on both sides by a fully mature larch forest with a cover of low Japanese sasa bamboo below. A dog-leg style hole that kinks to the left #2 gives the player an incredible reveal of Mt Yotei framed in green as the cart path leads to the second shot. The approach to the green features bunkers on both sides and depending on the pin placement there is normally a generous amount of green behind the pin allowing players to agressively pursue making it "On in regulation". A late afternoon or early morning tee time normally guarantees spectacular views.
- 543 Yards from pro tee, 528 from regular tee, 450 from ladies tee.
- Par 5.
- Tee boxes for pro, regular players and ladies.
